This has been coming for a long time. I never wanted to be a Broker in Charge and run an office yet that position was thrust on me when the current BIC at Express Real Estate had medical issues and then the office manager left. It was during the market crash and this was actually a good opportunity for me to continue in real estate, where no one was pulling a paycheck, and still actually pull a paycheck.
After the market recovered I had hoped of growing the office but I had one major problem……..I was the only agent who wanted to sell in Asheville because that’s where the market is. The other agents were happy in Mars Hill and that market is still not large enough to support everyone who is selling there. I felt that my needs, the needs of my clients and the needs of the office were going in different directions. It was time to change that.
I picked five independent Asheville offices that had longstanding names in our community. I started asking questions, running numbers and narrowing my list. I interviewed at two companies. They were completely different from each other. Both were friendly and welcoming but one, Town and Mountain Realty, offered the support and opportunities that I am looking for. I am excited to make this move! I feel good things are yet to come!
