  • I know our industry has become incredibly challenging. I love getting up at 4am every morning and having purpose. I get to go and help someone achieve the American dream. I get to go to work – I have a job that pays really really well and I can take care of my family. I get to talk and meet new people every single day. How cool is my world. Yes it has all of its challenges but I would not change a single second good or bad because the alternative of living on the streets with no hope or on welfare with no shot at getting back into my industry is the equivalent in my eyes as being dead….

  • Wher I live and work in Sarasota Florida; the vast majority of our agents are seniors, did I mentioned I’m in Florida? However, even though I’m not in that age group…yet, I work with many of them. In Sarasota 60 is the new 40 and agents here are active and healthy, very much open to learning and they understand the nature and technology road needed to remain relevant and successful; however (there’s always a but) I have also met agents that really struggle with technology and some even with health issues making the transaction or showings of homes a bit frustrating and not as efficient sometimes. As I get older I am thankful to be in an industry that is kind and welcomed to all. After the kids are gone, the spouse has passed, having a job to do, colleagues to socialize with and a reason to get up every morning, is for some, what keeps them healthy, happy and with life purpose.

  • It is true there are agents that have been in the business a long time that haven’t kept up on technology, because they choose not too. A lot of us are in our 50’s and 60’s grew up during the beginning of the computer age, my husband is a computer software designer and is also my real estate partner. He still designs custom software and helps me in my real estate business. We can’t judge the actions of a few.
