After years of spending way too much time on the Zillow app and watching countless episodes of Love it or List it and Property Brothers, I finally did it! I got my real estate license. I think my love for houses has always been there. We moved around a lot when I was younger and my parents always had a remodeling project going on.
Simple Spaces has provided me with the opportunity to be in hundreds of homes in Northwest Arkansas. I love helping people stage and organize their homes. Your home is the single most important physical space in your life. It’s where you reconnect, recharge, and relax. It should be a comfortable, efficient space that meets your needs and lifestyle perfectly. I’m excited to be able to help people find that.
On another note, after I got my license, I was really surprised at how many people emailed, texted or called me and asked about the process. They said they also had interest in it but never did anything about it. That really got me thinking about how many things people probably always intend or desire to do, but don’t. Here are three things that I did, that can help you follow through and turn your vision into a reality.
1. Tell people about it.
I never want to be that person who is all talk no action. I am true to my word. So for me, telling just a few people that I was planning on getting my real estate license was great motivation for following through.
2. Set a deadline
Signing up to take the class and attending were relatively easy. The challenging part for me was actually deciding when to take the test. I kept putting off scheduling it telling myself I needed more time to study. Finally, I had to just set a deadline for myself. I called and made an appointment and put it on my calendar and stuck to it.
3. Make an investment
We all hate wasting money. Once I had paid for the test, and some of the other fees, I had an investment. This is a great way to make yourself move forward with something.
So what is it that you’ve always been interested in but haven’t done yet? Maybe it’s a career change, maybe it’s just a hobby… but if you wait around for the perfect time, it will probably never happen! Just jump in.
And, if you live in Northwest Arkansas and need to buy or sell a house, I hope you’ll call me, I’d love to help!
