Yes, that dreaded exam is finally over! I’ll admit, I was prepared to take it two, three times if need be. What a blessing it was to walk out of that testing facility with excitement. And as of yesterday, my dues are paid. I am officially a member of the National Association of Realtors. Now, on to conquer the world! It’s time to… Hold on a minute.
Hey… Over Here Please. I Didn’t Get Any Instructions With This License?
Did your license come with an owners manual? Mine didn’t either. But, that’s why I love you guys and gals. See, you were once right here where I am. Fresh off the exam, dues paid, with a week old license in your hand . Think back to that short time ago. What was the first thing you did? Now, if you went to happy hour or sang “celebration” with your windows rolled down, let’s hear that too. But I’m talking that first, awkward transaction.
Time to Share Your Rookie Moment
Let’s talk about your first transaction. Were you representing the buyer or the seller? Where did the lead come from? Was the entire thing a smooth run through or did you trip on the front porch of the first home you showed? How about getting that lock box open? You didn’t drop it on your buyers’ toes did you?
I know you guys have some stories! Some probably went great, some not so much. Mine hasn’t happened yet. But, don’t be shy. If you’re brave enough to spill the beans, let’s hear the story of your first transaction. Hopefully, I’ll have a story to add to the mix soon.
