Although committing our time and energy to being a REALTOR® can be stressful and exhausting, real estate was ranked as the number one industry to work in nationwide by WorkplaceDynamics. Even though we have faced a down market for the past five years, we tend to love our jobs, companies, and the freedom to control our own destiny. REALTORS® help make people's dreams come true, and we work hard to protect the dream and reality of homeownership. The National Association of REALTORS® has recently launched a new campaign, "Dreams", which promotes that REALTORS® are the official sponsor of the word “home”, and I encourage you all to check it out. We are the front line for homeownership; we are the source. And as a fellow REALTOR® has pointed out in this YouTube video "God Made a REALTOR®", we are the ones who vacuum other people's homes and receive text messages at 2:00 A.M. regarding crown molding. So as we enter the busy spring market, remember that you are part of the best industry to work in - and keep up the great work!
