As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I took a couple months off from blogging so that I could focus my energy on putting all of my real estate knowledge into action. And what an action packed first quarter it has been!
Starting at the end of January, I invested in my continuing education and took a twelve week course from Buffini and company called Peak Producers. This program is a step by step action plan to help real estate agents develop the habits, attitude and skills needed to be become a peak producing agent. I’m so thankful I got to take part in this program because as a fresh agent, barely into my fourth month, I was struggling to find my footing. Now that I have the Peak Producers diploma hanging on my cubicle wall, I feel that I have a solid plan. I know what I need to do on a daily, weekly, monthly and annual basis to be successful and to represent my clients to my highest ability.
Midway through February, I received my first big break. I took a floor call for a potential listing. HOLY COW! My first listing interview! The two days beforehand, I was a nervous wreck, I prepped the best I could but when you’re new, you never know how deep to go. Fast forward to presentation day and I did it, and it wasn’t pretty. But bless her heart, the seller hired me. For thirty whole days, I worked by butt off. Here is the sign I put in the front yard… I did have my personalized signs yet.

Another milestone that happened this quarter was writing my first purchase and sale agreement for one of my buyers. My client and I had made a plan to tour homes on a gloomy Sunday afternoon and low and behold, we found “the one”. An adorable two bed, two bath, ground floor condo with peach colored walls that make me laugh each time I see them. I’m so excited to be a part of this chapter of my clients life. Helping her buy her first home has been so fun and huge affirmation that I made the right call to become a real estate agent.
