I’m a little non conventional. I rarely work in my office. I dont feel that I need to in most circumstances. Most if the properties I show are 30 minutes or more away. I often stop at other office’s that are in the area that I am showing.
I sometimes feel disconnected from the fellow agents in my office, as they are so different from me. They are not a geek like me (the little that I am) and I feel as if the passions I have in life are so different from there’s. I have a huge desire to make positive changes in the real estate world. I want to help others and share all the information I can. To me, its not as much about making the big bucks anymore. It just truly makes me feel wonderful when someone appreciates a blog I wrote or just simply giving someone help. I like to help, anyone if I can.
Yesturday, I received a phone call from another agent in my office. He said ” I heard you were letting your license go, so I was wondering if you were going into the referral network, and if you would send them to me?”
I paused for a second. In my head I was screaming WTF. The agent that called me, was newer and a completely nice guy. I knew it was not his fault. I simply told him “No, I am not letting my license go, but thanks for your offer”
I took and hour to ponder what just happened. I was slightly offended as, I felt like no one knew what I had been doing or even bothered to ask.
I would never say that I am swamped with deals, but I have been lucky enough to have an “ok” year. I take a lot of pride in what I do. I cherish the things I have been able to accomplish. I strongly believe that this has been my best year and it can only get better.
After I calmed down a bit, I decided to email my broker. As I am not in the office, I cant truly know whats being said or if it was at all.
I simply told him how I felt, and that it seemed like it was implied that I would be leaving. I have never once said I would leave or that I was even considering it.
I have calmed down about this quite a bit since. I almost feel bad blogging about it. I have decided to take the high road, and just ignore those who don’t beleive in me. I genuinely think that this is how I will change the world. By sharing and staying positive.
