A New Chapter


I have BIG news friends and family!!! And let me say that this isn't something I decided over night or something I decided because of the insane real estate growth here in Denver (that helps) but instead this is something I have been toying with for over 4 years. What you ask is it?
I am officially enrolled in Colorado Real Estate School and I am going to become a Realtor. 

In Oklahoma I worked as a Landman, working in Oil and Gas but dealing with land rights and land ownership then I also worked in a Real Estate office for a year as far some background is concerned. And those careers will help my resume when looking for a job and home as a Realtor.
When we left Oklahoma 3 years ago I sold the home myself in less than 4 weeks, executed all the paperwork, negotiations and made a profit on our starter home. Then last Spring I sold our Ohio home FSBO in under 3 weeks once again. And during closing the new owners said that they were blown away and I could have sold them a crap house and they would of bought it from me. They said I must become a Realtor.
Matt and I have discussed this on and off for years but now seemed right. Moving into our new home in a few weeks we need just a little more income coming in.... And I need something flexible due to my migraines and the fact that I will still be helping Matt at his office when I can. So I prayed on it, slept on it for a few weeks and made the LEAP! I picked Online Real Estate school since we have had a busy Summer, this way I have been taking the classes at home when I have time. I am about 1/3 into it and my goal is to finish and take the State test by the end of September.

Let me also say I have realistic goals, I am not committing myself to pounding pavement 10 hours a day, 7 days a week and dreams of making over 100k..... I don't want to set myself up for failure. I want to do this part time, sell maybe 2-3 homes a year and have this to always fall back on. I am also not saying it will be easy, but I really think this will be good for me and for our family! I do have a company in mind that I want to join and to get in I am hoping I can become an assistant for a year and then jump off on my own but we will see how everything works out.

I am excited and scared to start a new career and I absolutely refuse to have a cheesy headshot! lol! SO there it is friends, I said it out loud....it's Blog official!!! Wish me luck .........
