What Entices People to Begin a Real Estate Career?

It is no secret that for the majority of real estate agents, real estate is a second or third career choice. Rarely what they start out to do. You don't really hear children proudly proclaiming they want to grow up to become a real estate agent. Well, unless they grow up in a family real estate business. But with the way family dynamics work, they may instead choose to get as far away from real estate as they can.

So how do people come to the decision to be a real estate agent? What drives them to seek a career in the real estate industry? I have a few theories and ideas about that, of course. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Why Do People Go Into Real Estate?

From the 1970's: Creating Dual Agency Without a Listing

What is a Hawaiian laulau? I know what some of you are thinking. You might be wondering if a laulau is a luau; however, you will see that a luau is spelled differently. Laulau also translates as leaf, leaf. Now you might happen to sample laulau at… more
Great Place to Walk 2 Level Miles in Kona
We spotted a couple of guys running along the Maka'eo Walking Path in Kona but at the time of day we were there (mid-afternoon), it was pretty quiet. Not a soul gardening. Not a soul relaxing under the Australian Fire Tree to read a book. Nobody… more
My Longest Listing in 9 Years Closed in Davis, CA
While I knew the home in Davis might take longer than a few weeks to sell, I did not anticipate it taking almost a year. A good part of that can be blamed on the two separate sets of buyers who tried to purchase this home and then later changed… more
