It a new day and a new company

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty South

There is always something new in residential real estate sales and sometimes you have to make a choice: should I stay or should I go? After being recruited by some companies and interviewing with three I decided to go with a company that best fit my needs and my clients needs. I decided on RealtySouth. I am not proud that this is my fourth company but I feel confident in saying that this is my last company. I just moved my real estate license on Thursday night and went by my new office on Friday and everyone was so welcoming. My new office is in Mountain Brook Alabama and is less than 10 minutes from my house. I am shocked at how nice my coRealtors are and how much of a family environment that I have found myself in. I am so happy right now to be at such a great office and to start my first official week as a RealtySouth Realtor. Business is booming! First time home buyers are excited about the 8k tax credit, Investors are buying foreclosures at great deals and people that are selling their homes may not be getting what they want for the home but they must remember that they are also getting a great deal on their new home!

Again its great to have a new start and a new day and I am excited to be Realtor! Its great to love what you do and love helping out friends family and referrals!

I wish you all the best but usually it is not the company. As a trainer I see a lot of agents making a move only to find out it is them that needed to change. With the right skills anyone can produce on any level with any company.

Congrats Gusty! An office full of friendly faces and positive go-getters beats an office full of prideful, unfriendly agents any day of the week. These days, cost is often a factor that keeps agents moving from office to office. Brokers and companies alike are restructuring their fees and splits more and more often, and sometimes you just have to pack up and go. I was lucky to be in the same office for most of my years as an agent, and my relationship with my Broker was solid as a rock by my 6th year with that office. I hope this office enables you to build that solid foundation you are looking for. Good luck!

Gusty, you had to do what's best and what feels right.  I hope this is a company you will thrive in.  Sounds like you got off to a good start with the other agents welcoming you.

Thank you so much for the nice comments. Its not the company that will make the difference, but it is the company that will help with some tools to help me better myself as a Realtor. I would say my motivation and excitement are at an all time high. In Real Estate you have to have passion for what you do to survive and thrive and I have that!!
