One of my favorite podcasts is Happier by Gretchen Rubin. In her weekly podcast, she focuses on the little things, the actionable items we can do on a daily basis to bring joy and happiness to our world and those around us. In a recent episode they featured the Five Love Languages, a book by Gary Chapman which talks about the way we show our love to others.
My “aha” moment came when I realized my love language is Acts of Service. Nothing brings me greater pleasure than helping others. It is the foundation of my relationships with family, friends, community and my business. I truly enjoy doing things for others which explains why I enjoy selling real estate so much. It is not a sales position, but a service position.
Working in real estate is the opportunity to serve others in one of the biggest decisions they make. By listening to my clients and understanding their goals, I am able to use my years of experience to help them from beginning to end. I love be able make the whole process easier for them.
I also feel very fortunate to be part of a larger community that cares. The opportunity to spend time with people working to end homelessness, improve our schools, or make a difference with our area youth is inspiring.
Thank you to everyone that takes the time for service. I believe we are all in a better place when we ask the question, ‘How can I help?’
