Homes.com wanted to know what makes you tick when it comes to working in real estate. So we launched a contest for real estate professionals on May 30, 2012 asking just that: What Do You ‘LIKE’ About Real Estate? We were overwhelmed and inspired by responses about negotiations, staging a home, being able to pick who you work with and making your own schedule. Other prominent themes included developing life-long relationships with clients and the ability to be a part of helping others achieve the American dream of home ownership.
Real Estate Pros were asked to capture their fondness for Real Estate by using the word ‘like’ in a one-sentence response and the 1st place winner will receive a $250 gift card while the runner-up will be rewarded with a $100 gift card.
We are excited to announce that Mary Petruzzi, a Realtor and Certified New Homes Specialist with Century 21 in Indiana, said it best: I LIKE helping people own a piece of America. Well said, Mary! (Cue applause!)
Our runner-up, Stefanie Stockberger, SRS, SFR, a real estate agent with RE/MAX in South Dakota, stated: I LIKE to envision my clients making unforgettable memories of love, relationships and unity in their new homes along with being just a small part of that makes me wake up in the morning and be thankful to have such a powerful motivation to help people.” Way to sum it up, Stephanie!
Congratulations again to Mary and Stefanie for winning the contest! We would like to thank everyone who participated and provided passionate and inspiring thoughts about working in real estate!
