When I sat in a large real estate office in a DFW TX suburb 10 years ago (I'm independent now, broker of a small family of firms in N. Central Texas) I used to laugh as agents would excitedly spring from their office chairs and exclaim,"NEVER! I have never!  In 30 years of real estate, I have never....."This near daily occurance never ceased to amaze and entertain me. It made me laugh out loud. It made me think. It taught me countless lessons -- each "proclomation" served as interesting education. It illustrates -- to this day -- how unique our career path really is. When you can do your job for 30 years and still experience firsts on a regular basis, that is one unique career path!I have been in real estate since 2003, a little over 14 years. This is not long in "Realtor years" (it's n...

Have you ever written a post and left it in the blog draft area? For over a year?THIS.Tomorrow my 8 year old (Note: Now she is 10! Blog got lost!) princess will be a 9 year old young lady. She is pure joy. She is full in spirit, makes good grades, makes good choices, she has an adorable freckle-face and she is full of funnies, too. She is also a huge... animal lover.Like many little kids, she has said, "I want to be a vet." And like many little birthday wishers, she has closed her eyes and said silent prayers for pets for, well, every single special occasion ever. Aaaand like many things in life, she has learned of the reality of over romanticising her... fantasies.For example...Pets have to be constantly cared for, bathed, fed, walked, and, well, their poop has to be scooped. As she sa...

I try.I try to educate my kids.Sometimes it's me who gets the education.And always this beautiful, innocent little perspective.I asked my 10 year old what Memorial Day is.She got a little tongue-tied and giggly at first.And then she let her little light shine...."Brooke, what's Memorial Day?""You don't know?" She said."Yes, but will you tell me?"She said, "It is a day we honor our veterinarians."I am laughing."Mom, it's kind of a somber thing. It's not really funny.""You're right, Brooke. It's a serious matter... so... We honor our veterinarians?!"She bursts out laughing, throws her arms in the air, covers her adorable little face..."Nooooooo! Not our veterinarians! That's not what I meant! Our veterans!""The living veterans?""Nooooooo! THE DEAD ONE'S!"She lets a giggle slip out at her ...

So I kept getting this phone call, "Kristen, blah blah blah, __ __ __ , is this normal?" I don't mean "blah blah blah" to sound rude, I mean to be vague about the topic. "Kristen, he does business this way, how do you do it? Or "Kristen, he just said this to me, is that ok?!" "What is NORMAL?" "What is common?" "Why do I feel like this ain't right?!"Once you get that question enough times and the agent is in agreement with how you would handle it vs. how their team lead or their broker would handle it, well, easy. They will change brokerages. It's just that simple.Not everyone is for everyone. I started at Coldwell Banker and it was perfect for me! The Fast Start training. The hand-holding by the in-office trainers. The consistency it offered. The management. The fellow spirited agents....
