The satisfaction of being able to help a family to achieve their dream home!!

I love meeting new people, and in this job you can certainly meet a lot of people and help them. Paying attention to all the details, why do they sell? why do they buy? A different person who tells you their motivations, their illusions. This allows you to have many contacts.

I am a very restless person so I don't like to sit in a chair, and this job is perfect for me because I have to move around, go out, see properties, go to the notary, go prospecting, take the car and visit a different area every day. I definitely could not stand to be in the office all day.

I got into real estate because I was looking for a stable, long-term career that wasn't the same day on repeat until Fridays. I did a lot of research on different careers, and real estate kept coming up as a solid option with a lot of potential.

Hi colleagues!

I'm an experienced HRBP who's looking for some career advancement advice. I'm currently studying for my SPHR and looking to take the leap to HR Director roles. While I'm a strong HRBP, I've yet to manage a team. And while I train managers on people leadership skills, I myself, haven't had a chance to flex those muscles. Those in HR leadership, should I apply for HR Director roles even though I haven't managed a team?
