WHAT I LEARNED

I was looking at doing an in-house in a real estate office. However, if I am honest I’m not certain I would be well suited to working in a RE office.  I will continue to explore this, but if I had to choose I would prefer to do what Mike has done and attend/host a RE training event with a handful of select realtors. That way I am not tied to one office and I can choose the realtors I work with.

I’ll keep you posted on how this progresses.

What one thing are you going to change or improve after listening to this interview?
