A Reminder of What a Great Career we have Chosen

Nov 08, 2013


I just attended the national TCN Conference where Dave Hibbert was the guest motivational speaker. Dave came out of a successful commercial real estate career so when he speaks you will listen. After 30 years in the business it was refreshing to hear him ask "Is there a better career than a commercial real estate agent?" You don't have upfront costs to start your business and when you leave your office you don't have to worry to turn off the lights or remember to close the door. You also have total control of whom you want to work with and how much money you want to earn.

Here are some other great quotes regarding the industry and career we have chosen:

"In the real estate business you learn more about people, and learn more about community issues, you learn more about life, you learn more about the impact of government, probably than any other profession that I know of" ~ Johnny Isakson

"If you're not going to put money in real estate, where else?" ~ Tamir Sapir

"Its tangible, its solid, its beautiful. It's artistic, from my standpoint, and I just love Real Estate" ~ Donald Trump

"Real Estate is my life. It is my day job, if you will. But it consumes my nights and weekends, too!" ~ Ivanka Trump

"We are the front of the train, if our business stops then the economy has stopped because behind us are attorneys, architects, contractors, furniture sales etc. and their sales stop as well" ~ Hans Hansson

"Dear god, give me another real estate boom and I promise not to blow it again" ~ Unknown
