Perceptions of a Realtor

A past loan client came in this morning to talk to Sheri about a new listing and before he left he came over to me and ask how I liked not having to work now as opposed to what I did before.  I chuckled and told him that I am working more now, but it is different work and a lot more enjoyable.  I was fascinated with the perception that he thought that Realtors don't work.  The more I thought about it, I wondered if a lot of people had that same perception.  Wow!  I have some educating to do here.

The life and times of a Realtor are probably different for every agent, but my day usually starts with checking emails and responding to them.  Updating my blog and social networks and checking the days' market statistics. I check to see if there are any new listings that my clients might be interested in and then I make sure and get those out to them so they can take a peek.  I then work on files currently in process and make sure that they are progressing as they should be. Sometimes I need to attend inspections for my buyers or maybe sit down with a client and go over the process of buying a home.  I usually have a lunch meeting with prospective referral partners almost every day. Then the afternoon is involved in developing marketing materials or going on tour.  Unless I get to go show property or attend a closing.  Sometimes, I don't go home until late in the evening because there are just not enough hours in the day.  But they are FUN hours!  I love being a Realtor!

So today, I am looking at the MLS and I see that there are 8 new listings, 13 price changes and 8 sold.  Also there are 184 pending transactions.  529 residential properties on the market in the Casper area, which includes, Bar Nunn, Evansville, Mills and Casper.  New bank-owned property on the market today for only $144,900 with 4 bedroom and 2.75 baths, Eastside location.  This sounds like a heck of a good investment!  If you are reading this, pass this on to your friends and family.  They might know someone that might be interested.  Also, click on the "follow" button and you can continue to receive my blogs as they are published.
