Goodbye 2017... Welcome 2018

Its just a few hours before midnight and instead of any having celebration plans to ring in the new year, I'm home, taking down all my Christmas decor.  As I was removing ornaments from the tree, I found myself drifting back to the events of the year.  In all honesty, all of 2017 was important to me.  It was full of new experiences, gratifying triumph, and oh so much learning. 

     At its core, my profession is helping people buy and sell real estate but each one of my clients I helped in 2017 brought with more then just the need to buy or sell.  I was blessed to have known each of my clients prior to staring my real estate career, so when each one of the transactions closed I was doubly excited for each of them.  Three sellers and 5 buyers.  But each one was so much more then that.  I helped empty-nesters downsize, a family relocate from out of state, and several start their chapter of home-ownership for the first time.

First year reflections

As the calendar creeps closer to my anniversary date of the day I joined the Windermere/NCW team, I found myself looking back on all that I've learned and done this past year.

By the numbers:

12 months of real estate practice 28 floor duty sessions (this is when I'm stuck in the office praying for the phone to ring)8 transactions closed5 buyers3 sellers5 contracts that failed to close5 open houses hosted11,000 miles driven1 fender bender6,673 minutes talked on the phone6,692 text messages2.2 million dollars in volume 2 continuing education courses taken (Peak Producers & Accredited Buyer Representative) 1 MLS committee joined (YAY for party planning!)

A big thank you to my supportive husband and awesome clients, most of whom I already knew and were willing to take a ch…

2017...Quarter 1

Hello everyone!

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 f…
