Let me start out by saying this is supposed to be fun. There's nothing wrong with inserting a little fun into work, which is such a large portion of our lives. Even in the most dreadful job I've ever had I've still managed to have a little fun. Sometimes I may have even been guilty of having too much fun at work. That being said real estate can be fun. Even in the last couple of years when it has been very difficult we have still had fun. Mainly thats because we genuinely like the people we work for and with. (most of the time) :) See...I used an emoticon. Fun huh? Now you can be prepared to forgive spelling errors, run on sentences and poor paragraph separation from time to time.
You can see the url of this is http://elliebennett.blogspot.com but don't assume Ellie is the only contributor to this. As a matter of fact this is Jeff. Hi! More fun see. I told you. If you came here for Ellie you will just have to check back later. We decided to do this over the Christmas break after watching Julie and Julia half a dozen times. It seemed like a good way to communicate with our friends and clients and have a little, what...that's right fun. Have I said that enough.
That does not mean that this is going to be non stop silliness. There will be valuable information from time to time. Hopefully you will get something from this blog sometimes. I have learned a lot about real estate recently. I've learned the days when anybody could get a license and make a lot of money are gone. I've learned people who are committed to this business and willing to work will continue to succeed. Most importantly I think I've learned we fall into the latter category. I'm not saying it's been easy but we've hung in there and worked hard. I know we do a good job for our clients, I think most of them agree and we are still having fun.
Anyway that's enough for now. Now I get to go add some pictures to this blog and figure out how I want it set up. All the fun stuff. Please follow us and stop in from time to time. That's assuming our broker allows me to keep this on line after he's read the entry. :)
