Ahem......Hi. I mean, Hello There. Or should I say Hey? HEY! Ok, can I just be completely honest? This whole "sell Real Estate" thing scares me. I mean, not the actual selling real estate side (I think I have some experience there). But the part where I am marketing myself to be "your" realtor. I have never spent a single moment in sales. My last career was working for a non profit so I can assure you there were no sales going on there. And, when I was in elementary school and our class got to bring home the fundraising sheets (you know the one with the wrapping paper and chocolates) I never participated. No. Sales. Experience.
Buuuuuut, I really do LOVE real estate. Since getting my license it's all I can think about. I look at every single house on the market and I am trying to convince Drew to buy rental properties every day. I am driving around neighborhoods and thinking that (if I had any clients) I would love to be talking about that house for sale. I'm basically just playing "real estate agent." You know?
I just hate the idea of people thinking of me as a salesperson. I think in order for me to get comfortable with this thing I will need to think of myself as a Matchmaker, Mediator, Personal Home Finding Assistant/Facilitator. Now that is something that I am comfortable with (did I mention I spent 10 years helping people at a community mental health center). From now on I will call myself Samantha Perkins, Home Finding/Selling Friend to Anyone Who Wants Me To Be. Ahhhh, much better.
