Real Estate Is A Bit Like A Game Of Poker

Real Estate Is A Bit Like A Game Of Poker

Easy to learn but hard to to master

 

It takes minutes to learn the rules but it takes a lifetime to master the game of poker. This is true of real estate and many other things in life.

Have you  watched a professional ice skater spinning, twirling and gliding across the ice with, seemingly, little effort?

 

Ice Skates

 

Have you watched an amateur skater trying  those same moves with great difficulty? 

It takes many years of practice, coaching and training before it looks easy.

 

Same with real estate.

Many past clients decide to take up this career after buying or selling their own home. It looked so easy and so profitable.

How many of these same people have made it in real estate? How many have made it through the first year? 

Making it look easy takes many years of experience, learning and working with a wide variety of transactions.

Some have sold the house they recently purchased.They blamed their lack of success on the poor market.

Real Estate takes time and effort to acquire. It takes dedication to see the dividends of loyal clients, repeat business and income that reflects all that hard work.
