My real estate journey has lead me down many roads, some bumpier than others and some that have been similar to a chill Sunday drive. The road that I’m now, with Team Fast, has been the most gratifying and I’ve only been here for three short months. I’ve already been given the opportunity to help out agents around me, without being asked or told to do so.

When I was much younger I wanted to be a Leader. I wasn’t certain in what capacity, and I certainly didn’t expect real estate to be my path but I always had it in me to lead. Having honed in on my leadership skills with mentorships, training, books, lectures, and being volun-told (that’s voluntarily being told to be in a role) into leadership roles has evolved me into the leader that I am today.

I’m still not sure what capacity my leadership skills will be used in, but I know that my future with Team Fast will be nothing short of a success, and here’s why – At Team Fast we are all given the same opportunity and encouraged to be Leaders. When we see a fellow agent struggling we help them out without being asked to; when a question comes up, we respond without being prompted to do so; when someones not sure where to find info, we show them. Our current Leadership Team is made up of individuals who push us to be our best, every day. We are not only cheered on to do our best, but we are actually shown the tools needed to get there, and held accountable for our actions, or lack thereof. When we speak, our Leadership Team listens.

There is an abundance of gratitude in this team that is absolutely contagious. I’m incredibly grateful that my stars aligned with this team because I know that this is where all those years of leadership training will be put to good use. It may not be this week, this month, or this year, but I know that I’ll be utilized for my calling to lead, with grace.

Thank you for tuning in this week! I don’t usually nerd out on real estate on this blog but today I felt the need to put my gratitude out into the world. This week’s photo is from my trek out west in 2011. I made the journey from Indiana to Lake Tahoe because I felt the pull of growth and opportunity too strongly to sit still. Now, 10 years later, I see what that pull was – It was the pull to be my happiest, most fulfilled self.
