One of the first questions I get asked by my friends and family and colleagues is, "Are you back to work yet?" or "Are you back at working full strength yet?" My response is to look at the person like they're crazy and respond that I never took time off to begin with. As many of you know, I was blogging while in labor in the hospital, I had three closings the week I gave birth, and I had several appointments the week after Alyssa was born.
Where was my maternity leave? I tried to tell people I wanted to take time off, but that doesn't fit with my personality, and it never happened. I did slow down a little, but for me to slow down, that means working at 100% instead of at 200%.
With that, I hit my first ever TRIFECTA! Many times over the years, I have been the #1 agent in my office for the month or the quarter, but I have never been in the top spot for all three positions at the same time. That is amazing! My office emailed me the below.
Now, I ask the questions to everyone else in my office, "What are you people doing?" I have a 7 month old, and I have more business than I know what to do with. This is one of the main reasons I don't want to move to Austin. I have built my business over the past 8 years, and I'll have to give this up and start over.
The good thing is that I'm such a competetive person, that starting at the bottom only gives me one way to go, and that's up the ranks in a new office. I'll probably be making the announcement later this week on what the final decision is. I have many mixed feelings on what to do. My brain is frying!!
Until I know about Austin, I am still in Dallas and going stong. If you're a buyer or seller needing assistance, I'm still here for you. Are you packed yet?
