Is being a realtor a maternity friendly job? I’ve been in residential sales for a year and I’m thinking of starting a family now. How did you manage to run your business and start a family at the same time? How long was your mat-leave for? Is being part of a team better than solo at this stage? Any advice would be appreciated ladies

I think that no matter what your profession is, it is always good to make time for motherhood, if your desire is to be part of a family. You should check with your agency to find out how long the maternity leave lasts.

Just to clarify, are you working independently right now or with an agency?

I’m working solo under a broker’s agency yes

PwC Toronto assurance: being offered a job as a transfer from the US. I’ll be transferring as a senior associate 1 (aka this is my promo year). I’ll be either tier 1 or 2 since I’m an easy promote here in New York. I was offered 61k CAD assuming I’m tier 3. They said they might adjust it if my rating comes in higher. What should I expect if I were either tier 1 or 2? Trying to minimize the salary reduction…

Tips on work life balance is this instance? My acct is only about 7 months old & considered a huge win/growth driver for my agency. The high stress, adhoc requests never stop. My GAD is so hands off — Never picks up slack, just delegates, never says no. Then comes in at the last hour to nitpick yet not help. My clients & team (minus my GAD) are good people but it’s hard to live with such a high volume stress. Any strategies for surviving this acct? Not native to the fact this is agency life :/
