So much new stuff to learn! I've got to learn the different way of processing listings, sales, sending stuff to lawyers etc. It's all really the same stuff I've been doing for 14 years, but done just a wee bit different to throw me off, and sometimes doing the simplest thing seems to take forever! Of course, part of the problem is that I can't find anything! Must learn where everything is! Oh the fun part of starting at a new place.
I must admit though, it's all a lot of fun. I haven't felt this excited about work for a while. Must have been time for a change.
The interesting part is learning to be the boss! I've managed offices before, but it's a little different when you are the owner. But I'm really glad I made the choice to buy RE/MAX country. I've had so many encouraging comments from friends and clients. Just wait till Wednesday when the newspaper comes out with my "big ad"!
Let the fun continue!

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

Something I've wanted, but never thought would happen has happened to me! I am soon to be the proud owner of Remax Country in Princeton, BC.
Kind of scary, exciting at the same time. Should be an interesting adventure ahead!

At this point, there are some people that require special mention. These are the ones that have helped me along the way. It seems like life just seemed to be taking me in this direction!

First of all, Dean Stinson(Realtor, CENTURY 21 Princeton). He encouraged me to get my real estate licence. Dean has taught me so much about the real estate industry, thank you just isn't enough. Dean, you will always be my real estate mentor.

Next, Neil McHaffie(former owner, CENTURY 21 Princeton). He was one of the best bosses a person could ever have. He showed us how a real estate office should be run. I only hope I can do half as well as him.

Heather Johnson (current owner, CENTURY 21 Princeton). She is a great realtor. I can completely understand when she told me during her purchase of a real estate company, "I have to look after myself and family, this is for me."

Janice Barclay (current ,soon to be former, owner of Remax Country). It's great to be able to work with you on this purchase, it just feels so right!

Of course, Randy my darling hubby, Nick and Candace my great children, thanks to you I am able to achieve my dream.

Let the excitement begin!
