For those of you who don’t know—our company, The Brokerage Real Estate Center—was recently acquisitioned by Century 21 Everest Realty Group.
I HATE change! What is really ironic is that I took over a year to decide where to move my license after my first year and a half in the business BECAUSE I dislike change and only wanted to move companies ONCE. Without moving my office we have changed companies three times. Windermere became The Brokerage REC and then Century 21 Everest Group.
As much as I hate change I also know that without change we become stagnant and don’t usually push ourselves to grow or become better. The first few months were chaotic and I was ready to abandon ship more than a few times. Knowing that change can produce improvement, I made a commitment to stay the course for 6-months while we got our footing as a new company. Besides, Century 21 is the number one brand in the nation and Century 21 Everest Group (main office in Midvale) is the number 1 brokerage in the nation. Gotta be doing something right!
It has been rough for me, but I am learning new things and pushing to improve my skill set at the same time. I still have my amazing broker and now 2 owner/brokers who I am learning a lot from as well. There is definitely something to be said for a larger company.
There is a quote that says, “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” -Jack Canfield. There is much truth to that! I have recently been asking myself what I would be doing differently if I was not afraid of failing. It makes you think hard about what you are doing every day. Is it moving you in the direction of what you want? Are you becoming the best YOU? I always get a bit introspective as we end and year and start gearing up for a new one. If you haven’t started thinking about it—I challenge you to ask yourself—what is on the other side of fear—for you? And then gather the people, the supplies, the skills to get yourself there.
