In Real Estate, No Two Days Are Alike...Ever

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with MoonDancer Realty, Dillsboro,NC NC# 218097



In real estate, no two days are alike. For some of us, that’s one of the real draws to the profession. I’ve had jobs working for other people before when days just roll into each other with no significant difference from each other. In those kinds of jobs, for me, there is no challenge, no passion, no sense of advocacy.

Our day yesterday started with a seminar hosted by Oldtown Bank in Waynesville actually it started with taking Gigi, the 80 pound black and tan coonhound mix to the Animal Hospital of Waynesville for some much needed dental surgery. THEN we attended a seminar hosted by Old Town Bank in Waynesville and the Haywood County Board of Realtors. Interestingly enough, the seminar dealt with the different things that people find “motivate” themselves and how unless we make a concerted effort to discover those things…we may never fully understand what drives us to success. It was eye opening for me. At some point in the future I might share some more in the blogs, but for now I do understand better what draws me to ActiveRain, writing and photography.

After the seminar, we returned to Dillsboro and had an afternoon full of returning calls, prepping for Saturday’s day of showing, I showed our listing on Helen Zachary Rd in Cullowhee and made more calls. We returned to Balsam, picked up the little grey/white cat called “Little Monkey” and went back to the vet’s office. Little Monkey had a senior panel drawn for bloodwork…he doesn’t seem to be keeping his weight on him. We picked up Gigi who was now rid of the infected teeth. Someone was in the vet’s office who had just found a dog that we are sure the owners are frantic to find. This person can keep the dog as of today but couldn’t last night, so we boarded her at the house until this morning.

It was indeed a very long day and certainly different from the day before or how today will end up. So, as I pondered about today’s blog I was searching through my photos and came across this serene scene and thought this will be a good image to reflect upon. I know for a fact, no two days are alike in real estate…ever.

This sure rings true Mona. Our 2 rescue dogs are relatively young and problem free, but we have had more than our share of animal adventures, worries and stresses. Great work helping our furry companions and an outstanding peaceful photo.

It is so true about no two days being alike.  I once worked in an office with an agent friend, who said, "I love real estate because if I get a bad boss (client), the job is usually over within 60 days:-)

I also needed to come back and tell you how special I think that picture is that accompanies your words on this blog.  It evokes a lot of emotion.

first of all, I love that photo!! I tend to love all your photos though.. :)

And you are so right about everyday being different.. and full of possibility!... by the way, when reading this I had a thought that would be good for SEO.. I love how you mentioned your listing and showing it, but you could put a link to the listing on  your website or flier or something so that when someone hits the address in your blog it goes there..I will have to use that idea myself soon... :) thanks for making me think of it!!

Steve? Jan?  Thanks for the comment and glad you found the photo to be peaceful.  The problems with pets always comes in waves. Seems like you can go for a good long time with no issues and then BAM here they come.  Good news is that Gigi seems to be feeling great.

Myrl, what a great outlook.  I think I'll borrow it for those rare times the boss(es) aren't so great.  Thanks for coming back to look at the photo.

Sheila, congratulations again on the 400,000.  The SEO suggestions are a good idea.  I may redo this some on Sunday when I have more time.  Glad I helped you think of it, lol.
