How To Really Measure Success in Real Estate

I have always been blessed as an agent in my area in terms of being “successful” .  Many REALTORS® have different ways of calculating success.  Some will count how many homes they sold at the end of the year, others will use their income as the gage for their success.  I gage my success in a different way.  For me, it is the relationships that I establish that will hopefully last a lifetime.

Many of my clients are first time homebuyers.  I am honored to be involved in a person or couple’s first home purchase.  It is a milestone in their life that they will someday look back on with pride that they accomplished and I played a role in the transaction.

I have also been lucky enough to be invited to some of their weddings.  As it turns out, I have been invited to 4 weddings this year.  It is  typical for me to be invited to 3 or 4 weddings a year that are clients that I have become friends with.  This year I have had my clients, Ben and Amanda, get married.  Unfortunately I was out of town for their wedding.  I was fortunate enough to be able to attend Wes and Rachel’s wedding last weekend.

It was a beautiful cermony, perfect weather and they were surrounded by so much love and happiness.  It was a really great day.  I am honored to have been included in yet another milestone in their lives.  I know both couples will have many years of happiness and love.

The best part about real estate is that we get to participate in the real life stories of our clients.  That is what I call success.

  1. Hi Audrey,

    Moments like these really do bring a lot of joy don’t they?! They make it all worthwhile! You are very fortunate..

    I remember when I received my first holiday Christmas Card for a client (it was a family portrait with a personal note and an invitation to dinner). It was a great feeling to know that someone would include me in their life like that and that it was more than just a transaction that we did someday.
