Did you know that before I was a REALTOR®, I was a teacher? I taught middle school literature and was an English major in college.
When the real estate bug bit me, I decided to give up teaching and become self-employed. I still think education is the most important thing and I do not regret having my college degree even though I am not currently using it (and still paying for it). I truly believe that you should never stop learning.
I do volunteer in my children’s schools, and I have decided to give back by donating part of my commission to the schools in my community.
So, when I sell (either on the buy, list or build side) a home in Sienna Plantation, I will donate 5% of my personal take-home pay to the school that my client chooses as long as it is here in Sienna OR children from Sienna are zoned to that school.
