Growing up in Raleigh has it's advantages. Recently one of my close childhood friends asked me to come to Harris Creek Elementary, where she is the school guidance counselor, to talk to her fifth graders about careers in real estate. I always say yes to opportunities to help kids! I had no idea what to expect or what I would say to these students who are preparing to graduate from elementary school in just a few weeks to head to the big, scary world of middle school.

There were all types of professionals at Career Day from engineers to event planners, family care practitioners to accountants. I set my laptop up on a table and let the kids search their own home on the real estate website we use as realtors. We looked at million dollar homes then looked at homes of their favorite celebrities! The kids asked me really thoughtful questions such as what are the different type of real estate agents, do you have to go to college to be a real estate agent, how much money can you make, do you go into an office, do you have to work on the weekends? 

I thoroughly enjoyed sharing the benefits of my profession. I get to help people realize the dream of home ownership. I meet really cool people and make friends for life. I have my own business and get to help my family realize some of their dreams. I work with other real estate professionals who are some of the most fun, energetic and optimistic people I've ever met. It is the hardest job I've ever had but also one of the most rewarding!
