The ink is barely dry on Jon Spisiak’s real estate license and he’s raring to go.

"I can’t slow the guy down," says his soon-to-be boss, Mark Hodges, who has hired Spisiak to sell homes at K. Hovnanian’s Four Seasons at Delray Beach, an active-adult community in Florida. His first day on the job will be Jan. 4.

But Spisiak isn’t your average newbie sales associate. He’s 72 and long retired from a highly successful career in the financial services industry — though earlier in life he flirted with the real estate business.
