I do not intend to work until I am in the nursing home. There are too many things on my agenda that I want to do. With that said I have a few years left before I will want to turn it over to the younger generation. Of course a change in health could accelerate it.

Tony good question!  I guess if I decided to travel a lot I might consider 'hanging it up' but I doubt it would be forever.  We really enjoy working with all our folks and it's kind of fun - not like work to me, most of the time.

Bob B who started in 1969 had a Sunday newspaper interview of him, a top agent. He stated agents have ~10 premium year career. You need to plan for retirement as there is no pension.  He retired after 39 years headed for Vegas. I found out he is working out of his mobile home park showing mobile homes. 

Many would like to retire but they do not have income. I have seen agents in the mid 80s showing homes.

I don't know if I could fully retire. But if if my health, energy or lack of love for it start to go then it would be time to retire. I guess if I won a big lottery I probably would then too, as I wouldn't want to take an imcome away from someone that needed it.

My body may want to retire but my brain will object. If I ever retire I'll probably still list houses for my fellow retirees in the independent living or assisted living community I'll be in. Unfortunately, I'll probably be doing some probate sales, too.

I have made that decision.  For me, it was for health reasons.  I had spent several years taking care of my husband and I was tired and hadn't taken care of myself.  I had several health issues I needed to get under control. After my husband passed, I decided to take a year off.  I turned in my license because I didn't want to be tempted to do anything!  That has been 6 1/2 years ago and I've never wanted to go back. My health is under control and I love the freedom to make my own schedule.  I do enjoy coaching new and struggling agents so that is how I stay involved.
