A Newbie Confesses

Real Estate Agent with Real Estate One,Macomb County, MI

Did this really happen to me?  It all seems so very cloudy-was I dreaming?....Naw I couldn't be because I pinched myself and it felt very real.(Ouch!)

Anyone who has read my blog knows that I am a newbie. What you probably don't know is that I am not only a newbie in the blogging world but I am a newbie to a quite a few other things too!


I am NEW to the state of Michigan!- Yes, I just landed in Michigan in March this year-originally from Indiana(45 minutes from Chicago)

I am a NEW real estate agent. (started in September)

I am a NEW face in my community and at my children's schools.


Every contact I make is NEW to me because I don't know anyone.cartoon lady on phone


I have been very fortunate and blessed with all this NEW-ness.

When I look back everyone (except 1) that I have actually shown houses to bought a house from me. I went on 1 listing appointment, they listed with me.

I know this business comes with disappointments-I will have to deal with that when it happens but I will have to confess-being NEW to the business has served me well and my clients seem to think so too!

I have a great mentor-always available to give me NEW ways of approaching things. The ActiveRain community is like taking an online correspondence course-learn something NEW everyday!

I know eventually the NEW-ness will wear off, because time marches on. I want to be diligent in making sure that my excitement/enthusiasm exudes a NEW-ness.

What will you do in the NEW YEAR to make sure there is a NEW YOU?
