Why I do what I do

Why I do what I do

Liz and Bill Spears challenged us to write this month about what we love about our job. Several people have written about how they don't view what they do as a job, others about what motivates them. When I got to thinking about this I knew what I was going to write about. My why I do this job, be a Tredyffrin Easttown Realtor.

I remember it clear as day, I was sitting in a continuing education class, and being the smart Realtor I was I had chosen an ABR course, that is Accredited Buyer Representative so I could have some letters after my name. I always wanted letters after my name as I knew it was going to make Mom happy. Anyway I digress. 

I can see the class leader/teacher even now walking to the front of the room and he was talking about fiduciary duty. Whilst others were nodding off, I sat up. It was afternoon, but suddenly my interest was piqued.

"Fiduciary duty is where you put your clients, in this case your buyers, interests ahead of everyone else's including your own.

I suddenly realized this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I had once signed up to be a military officer in England, but got injured so that career went out the window. But always remember being told to be a good leader you have to put your men first. As the Marines say when you are an officer, you eat last.

I realized right away that putting others needs ahead of my own aligned completely with my values of servant leadership. It was all about helping others acheive their dreams.

Sure I love the freedom, and the variety of things to do, and the negotiations and everything else. But helping others above and beyond my self gives me so much satisfaction I know it is the right thing to do everytime.

So, if you want help finding or selling a Tredyffrin Easttown home and want someone who is going to put your dreams, goals and needs ahead of their own every time, call me.
