Last night I attended a young professionals of Portland networking event. While this event is a great way to get my name out there and meet people who may be able to help me in my industry, I am always faced with the same hesitation when I introduce myself.
“Oh you’re in real estate, that must be really tough right now”
“Oh real estate, why are you doing that in this market”
Truth is, real estate is going great! Though it was a slow year in 2011 and nothing really happened for me, on paper that is. I am happy to announce that not only did I sell my first house, I sold 2 in one day! Just goes to show that as long as you stick to your guns, good things happen!!
I am proud of my career choice and I plan on sticking to it for many many years to come! Now I just have to get through those inspections!
