Prior to real estate, I was a high school Biology teacher. I loved teaching and it allowed me to have the same hours as my own children. Making a difference in the lives of the younger generation is something that I will always be happy that I invested in.
The best news now however, is that many of my past students are finding me on Facebook and asking me to assist them with their real estate needs! What a huge compliment and how wonderful! Being able to reconnect with these young adults is truly a blessing to me.
Having the opportunity to see how these students have grown up, married, careers, etc. is the greatest of gifts. The fact that I didn't scare them away with all of the Biology lessons is amazing in and of itself! I am super proud of them and find it a great honor to help them!
Over and over I have heard them tell me that they read my Active Rain blogs that I post on my Facebook Company page. Wow and yay that they are reading them. This generation definitely likes the social media thing and I believe it to be the only way these former students would have ever found me!
So thank you social media and Active Rain for providing me a way to stay in touch with a group of younger folks who I can now assist in real estate! Referrals are always a great thing! A former student referral for me is absolutely the BEST!
