The making of a real estate agent (Part 3)

Continued from part 2 Oh…and then there’s that introvert thing This may or may not seem like it’s related to this post, the introvert readers will get it. Back in my younger days, I thought there was something wrong with me. I wasn’t comfortable around people I didn’t know, was …

The making of a real estate agent (Part 2)

Continued from part 1 The transition wasn’t easy I’ll admit it, going from no gig into a real estate gig was a hard transition both financially and mentally. First off, I didn’t have a traditional ‘pay check’ for eight months, and the savings and emergency funds were pretty much gone. And when …

The making of a real estate agent (Part 1)

It all started when… In October of 2015 my position at Samick Music Corp. was eliminated. I started working at Samick in 2000 and for the most part loved my job. As a matter of fact, I loved my job so much that I (ahem, we) decided to relocate with …

Memorial Day: Remembering those who gave all

Remembering those who gave all I don’t know what it’s like to lose a loved one to a war. I don’t know what it’s like to be in the military. I do know what it’s like to be able to exercise the freedoms I have because brave people gave their …

CHORD transition

A different Chord transition than in the past Generally, when I’m speaking of chord transitions, I’m talking about music or guitar stuff. Today is different, as this week I start on a new adventure in the real estate world; I’ll officially join (ahem, ‘transition to’) the Chord Real Estate team, …

Los Espada and Super Group Go!

Super Group Go! The pic above is a picture of success. You may not be familiar with it, it’s a comic book series created by Los Espada, a good friend of mine. What you don’t see is the story behind the story. Super Group Go! was years in the making. …
