There are several misconceptions of what a realtor’s job is like on a day-to-day basis. When you get to make your own hours and run your own business, it might be easy to assume their job is simple. Looking into what a real day in the life of a realtor is like might change that.

Of course, every day is different and that is part of why we love our jobs so much. Some days are busier and some days are lighter. Being a relator requires being a self-starter and taking the initiative to help our clients find the best home.
It’s also important to note that we don’t clock out on Friday at 5pm. Over the weekends we’re holding open houses or showing homes to clients that aren’t available during the work week. It’s easy to work 7 days a week when you love what you do.
