My New Outside Blog: Just A Piece of Cake!

Just A Piece of Cake!


Jamie's Wedding CakeYou've heard it before and chances are you will hear it again ... Being a Realtor is such a fun and easy profession, just a cakewalk to making lots of money showing pretty homes.

Like an Olympian figure skater making an intricate program appear effortless, a top real estate professional smoothly glides through high volume of sales, success after success making it appear soooo easy.

The reality is that real estate sales is a demanding career.  It requires one to adapt to economic changes to re-vision their business to mold to change.  The ever changing technology keeps a Realtor on their toes making sure they incorporate the latest and greatest to give an edge to the business.  Costs, you have to invest money to make money.  It certainly is an expensive business to properly maintain.  Emotional, each day presents a Realtor with a new opportunity to maintain their professional demeanor as interaction with varied temperaments comes their ways.

Rewarding, absolutely!  The chance to see what the Realtor started from scratch and to see how it ends up to a beautiful memory .. a great journey for your clients makes it all worth the many hours and labor.  And yes, it to your client it looked like a piece of cake!

Hi Connie~ I think you are correct!  We do make it look so easy!  There is so much more that is involved and our experience makes it appear to be simple and like magic!  That cake looks so good!

Almost anyone can obtain a real estate license ! But building a "business worth owning, a career worth having" is a whole nother story !

Thanks all for visiting ... loved your point Celesta .. you can hold a license but actually building the business is a whole story in itself.

When I started my home inspection business back in October 2001, there were 28,000 real estate agents listed in the San Diego MLS. Now it’s down to something like 12,000. I guess those other 16,000 discovered that it wasn’t a cakewalk. Speaking of which, what the heck is a cakewalk? Hmmm. Google, here I come.
