Real Estate Broker Diaries WAHM Diaries

Life as a Real Estate Broker

Working from home must be one of the most un-glamorous jobs out there.

…and there is even less glamour when you’re working from home while cleaning the house and looking after a toddler who never seems to run out of energy!

But I have a personal stabiliser: my being a real estate broker.

I consider myself an infant in the real estate industry. After all, I’ve been one for barely a year; I just passed the board exam just June of last year and got my license later that month. And I haven’t focused on real estate fully. I am holding a full-time job with Stay At Home Mum Australia and I’m loving my work there. However, when opportunities arise, I make use of my fairly new title.

My mother, who is in the real estate industry, too (actually, she’s the one who pushed me to take classes and take the real estate services board exam), likes to take me to events to expose me to the industry, the movers, and the people in it. I like attending events because aside from the exposure, I like to eat food. LOL!

This is the “takip-tiyan” pose. Yes, I’ve grown fat. Huhu.

Don’t blame me — I work wearing house clothes every weekday!

Of course, I like learning (I especially like learning outside the context of a four-walled classroom) and I do learn a lot from the events we attend.

But, speaking of learning, life as an infant in the real estate isn’t all dressing up and socialising. For starters, we need to attend CPDs (Continuing Professional Development), which is a requirement to renew the license. Then again, these are opportunities to learn and meet new people so I’m not even complaining!

Mama: I may be wrong, but you are the only real estate broker carrying a floral planner in teal…

As I’ve said, I’m really really new to this and I don’t even consider myself a full-time real estate broker. But so far, I’m liking what I do!

    Good luck on your new career. Same here, I love attending events for the knowledge, for for dressing up, and for the food. Ihihi.

    My mom is into non life insurance and she would always convince me to join her. The best I’ve done for her business were to Input her clients’ policies in the computer and attend some seminars. Aside from that, I still useless to her. Hehe.

    You look so different with makeup on! I’ve always been interested in Real Estate, but I didn’t want to do it here in Manila. Parang feeling ko the industry is oversaturated here.

    It’s really nice to dress up once in a while especially when you’re a work at home mom who doesn’t get to go out a lot.
