The answer to that question as real estate sales guru and trainer Brian Buffini always likes to say is, â€œUnbelievable!â€ Looking at the overall marketplace, gleaning information from reports and statistics, itâ€™s easy to see that business is good. It has been growing consistently now for several years, especially as the demand for new construction rises to keep up with a lack of overall inventory. When it is going well people take notice, and many begin to contemplate what itâ€™s like to be in real estate sales.
As a RealtorÂ® and sales associate with Long & Foster for over 15 years, coupled with a housing background beginning in 1985, Iâ€™ll say that our business is rewarding and enjoyable. It is also one of the most demanding when you plan to make it your â€œcareerâ€, the primary means of earning your living. I would argue that it is without a doubt a full-time professional occupation that often demands weekend and evening hours.
As the office manager for Long & Foster Strawberry Street Sales located in Richmondâ€™s Fan district, I continually meet and discuss business prospects with new and experienced agents seeking to begin or improve their careers.Â It is easy to explain how Long & Foster has enjoyed the last 50 years as a real estate leader when you consider all the training, tools, and systems we continually offer our agents. As a result, our sales associates are better prepared and more productive than the nationwide industry average. Contact me if you would like to learn more about the Long & Foster career advantage, Iâ€™m happy to share what a fulfilling career in real estate looks like today.
