Why is NOW the right time to become a REALTOR?
The Housing Industry is well past the bubble and there is a pent up desire to own a home. Millions of people suffered through the downturn and are ready to make a change. Equally important is the fact that the population is changing. As the Generation X & Y age their desire to own a home becomes very important to their social status and their feeling of success. Although Millions of people have lost their homes, we will see these people moving back towards Home Ownership. Depending on their situation we may see large numbers entering the buying side within the next 3-5 years. What we find to be very exciting is the Generations X & Y along with the Millennial Generation.
These Generations of future Home Buyers will make a significant impact into the Housing Industry in the coming years. These Generations are very well informed, they understand how to find information and navigate the online business of Real Estate. They are assertive and aggressive to achieve their goals.

Real Estate has sure changed in the last 10 years. It wasn’t that long ago that a Real Estate Agent was the keeper of all property information, carrying around a big ole book of properties, driving all over town to view properties and meet clients. And if you had to get a contract signed, well that could take days. We were the Keepers of the Information. Those days are long gone; for most, but not all.
Professional REALTORS today are no longer the keepers of information. We have lost that battle. Thanks to the likes of Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com and about 3000 other websites. Today, Home buyers and Sellers can get information, pictures and videos just about anywhere they look. Did you know that 90% of ALL Homebuyers start by researching their future home online, 90%! Ask yourself if you’re where the buyers are?
Today a REALTOR is the most important person to a future home buyer or seller. We no longer own the information, but we disseminate the facts and information to educate tomorrow’s clients. We are responsible to support our clients who may need to buy or sell a property. We do that by following a code of ethics, always being accurate, honest, timely, professional and friendly. We are the first and last stop when a client decides to purchase their dream home.
