Hot Market Milkshake brings all the Agents to the Yard!

I recently read a snippet of a recent article in the Wall Street Journal entitled, “New Realtors Pile Into Hot Housing Market. Most Find It Tough Going.” Reading this article reminded me of new investors in the stock market or last year’s run on exercise equipment during COVID. We all had high ambitions of working out at home, only to find it much more difficult to find the motivation to move the weights from in the middle of the room, then to even get around to lifting them.

This article also reminded me of why I got into real estate, and why I stay.

I have had many different careers in my life and have always had a passion for real estate. When I was younger, I even purchased the Carlton Sheets, No Money Down program. This program taught me a few things:

  1. Buying No Money Down then was not that difficult - #subprimeloans
  2. Buying with other people’s money is a skill and a talent, not just a given.
  3. Real estate can be a very lucrative business.

What is my WHY?

The answer to that question is My Family! Point blank, end of story!

Moving on…

Okay, I will explain better. When I got married, I knew then that I had a responsibility to our union nevertheless it was not until the birth of my first child, that I realized what responsibility really was. It was a wave of extreme adulthood, sweeping in and from there, I knew what I had to do for them. When my second child was born, that sealed the deal. I had inked the deal to do whatever was needed for them. They are my drive for excellence!

Tell me about Real Estate

What a loaded question! I enjoy the interactive nature of the real estate transaction. It allows me to be on the journey with people during one of the biggest purchases of their lives. That feeling of showing my value through property education, process explanation, and leveling expectations is infectious.  

Working with YellowBrick Real Estate, a growing brokerage of young, ambitious real estate agents, has been very rewarding. Our culture and community breeds communication and rapid licensure to the first close, via its training and advocacy practices. I see myself growing more as a coach, agent, friend, father, and husband, the longer I stay here.

Thank you for reading. Let me know if you are looking for a dedicated agent to take on your journey.
