Initially, I thought I knew why I wanted to be a Realtor. I was an empty nester, I felt the need to do something meaningful with my time and I wanted to help provide for my daughter’s college education. I had been Director of Marketing Services at Atlanta Gas Light and knew market research, marketing, and advertising. So, how hard could it be to get my license and get to work? Well, five years later, my daughter has graduated from college already. I’ve found the work definitely fills up my time. And it’s more rewarding than I ever imagined.
When we are a bit more seasoned, (code for a little past 55!) we know ourselves a whole lot better than we did in our 20s and 30s when we were starting out our careers. I recently participated in Younique, which is a program to help identify what your true talents are and how you can be sure to align your career, hobbies and life where you can thrive. I definitely feel that I have done just that with my real estate career!
This couple was one of my first clients. They both wanted a lake house in North Georgia, along with selling their Alpharetta home. Since Alpharetta was not my niche, I co-listed with a market savvy, experienced Dorsey Alston agent to list and sell their home. I was able to help them find the perfect lake house to purchase and it all went well.
They remain one of my very favorite couples as they were so upbeat and excited to move nearer to their adult children and find a lifestyle that suited their season of life. This was the beginning of my work with empty nesters, seniors and retirees.
While I did not set out to be an expert in helping empty nesters – my passion, talents and experience in this niche has come full circle. I’m so excited that my contacts and network led me down this path. I am further refining my business to focus on helping empty nesters in Metro Atlanta and East Cobb. And, I established an excellent “out of state” referral network that clients love when they decide to move out of Georgia.
