Big News in Omaha! If you’ve not already heard….CBSHOME and BHHS (Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Ambassador Real Estate) are merging into one HUGE company. These are basically the top two residential brokerages in the city….and now a mammoth company. Both are now owned by Berkshire Hathaway, so it only makes sense that they decided to merge.
With this merger, there are lots of moving parts. We will go into more detail about this in future articles and videos…but, for now, please check out this video and brief info below…..
I’ve said for years that everyone at some point in their life should work in the service industry. You can learn a lot about people, business and hard work. Many of the members on the Blythe Team have worked in the restaurant industry in the past. I thought it would be fun to chat with them and see what skills they learned from that industry that contributed to their success in their Real Estate career.
Do you have what it takes? Several times a year I have people reach out to me or other team members inquiring about getting their Real Estates License. Here is the key advice I give to people when they express interest in selling Real Estate.
You are your own boss
Whether you start your own brokerage, join a brokerage, or join a Real Estate team, you are ultimately your own boss. A good team or brokerage will give you the tools and guidance you need to be successful but how and when you use these are up to you. Agents are paid on commission and it’s up to YOU to go out and learn the skills you need to thrive. My best advice here is treating it like a business, not a hobby.
