I hit a new high-water mark this week: I took my fourth listing.
That is, my fourth simultaneous listing. Two of them are rentals, but in this market that's pretty darned exciting.
I also knew that I couldn't handle everything. I do publishing work about half-time and I love it. The steady income helps smooth the highs and lows of real estate. As important as the money, the steady work itself keeps me focused on a world of deadlines and short-term results, which makes me a better real estate agent.
