A week and a half ago I quit my very well paying, good benefits, secure job with a great company. I was very good at what I did, I was an expert. I am now a self-employed real-estate agent. I have so much to do that I don't know where to begin. Instead of being an expert that other people turn to, I am a rookie (albeit with a great team around me). I no longer receive regularly scheduled paychecks, in fact I don't know for sure when I'm going to receive my next check.
You might think that I am crazy. I may agree with you. So why did I make this seismic shift in my life? At the core, I think I needed the challenge. I have given the best of me to someone else in exchange for that regular pay check for my entire adult life. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful for those jobs because I had a family to support but things have changed. I have reached a place where I am able to bet on myself, on my skills, on my ability, and on my drive.
I am now a full-time Realtor and I am loving it. It is great being a partner with my wife Tina at work as well as in life. It is great being able to set my own schedule (I get the pick the 16 hours I want to work each day). Mostly though, I find deep satisfaction in being able to help people find their perfect house. I like that it is my job to truly help people in a meaningful way. Now I get to partner with people who are making the biggest purchase in their life and help guide them through the process. I get to help them get them find home. In my book, that is a fantastic job description.

Deep Sixing The Quest to DownsizingFinally, our family of five is livi
"I was interested in purchasing an out-of-state foreclosure I found online. I sent an email inquiry to EvoReal. I was contacted by agent Laura Beckman. Laura scouted out the property for me right away. The foreclosure property I was interested in was in need a new roof and the previous owners did some serious interior damage on their way out the door.
Laura hit the ground running again. By the next day I had a list of alternate properties to go over. I selected a few of the properties. With me being out of state, Laura previewed the homes for me, sent me pictures and videos, comps and the following day I was able to make an offer long distance. I was able to sign documents via an online service. This process was made practically seamless compared to my last few home purchases. I feel very lucky to have connected with this agent and recommend her highly!"
