Reflection On My Career

I recently met a  loan officer @Alex_Stenback . We were talking about business and how I got into real estate. He asked a question, that honestly I had a hard time answering. He asked “What is your goal for the year?”. I honestly had no clue. I have never really set goals. I guess you could say this is bad.

I took the evening to look back at what I have done over the years. Starting in the title end. I ended up in the closing side after college. I had no clue what I wanted to do for a career. I went to a temp agency and they happen to place me at Burnet Title. I almost instantly fell in love. I love the energy, the challenges and the growing up I did while I was there. I started there at 19 and worked there for 6.5 years. I was known for doing a great job, handling a high volume of closings and I became the go to person for questions.

Towards the end of my time there, I began to realize that I wanted more. I needed a bigger challenge and I wanted to be more involved with the entire transaction. So I took a big leap and got my real estate license.

It was very intimidating. I believed that I could just jump right in and be successful. Obviously wasnt the case. It was hard work. I struggled for a very long time. Almost quit once because I didn’t think I could make it. I started this blog in the beginning of my career. I had a hard time finding real life experiences from other agents. I thought maybe it was my job to share my experiences, good or bad. It works for me and I think many appreciate me being so honest about what’s going on in my career.

The good news us, this past year, has been epic for me. I have had one of the best years yet and the opportunities have great. It’s all clickin’. I think I may have it figured out.
As far as a goal, I really have no clue. I’m terrible at setting goals. However its something I have to consider.
