Are you available on weekends, evenings, and holidays? Do you have a reliable vehicle, cell phone, and computer? If you answered yes, you may keep reading! Our local real estate market has just experienced a robust Spring market up more than 20% (RBI Stats) from 2015. With other industries still struggling and sluggish overall, interest in a real estate career is on the rise. Those REALTORS who bailed out during the worst real estate market in history (2008-2012), have begun to reactivate licenses, brush up on new legislation and best practices to once again enter the world of real estate. It really is a wonderful area of expertise! You decide how much you will earn as most models are commission based, but more importantly you brand yourself as to what kind of agent you will be: Full-Time, Part-Time, Full-Service, Limited Service, Buyer Agent, Listing Agent, Property Manager, Commercial Agent, Investor Agent, First Time Home Buyer Agent....and any combination thereof. If you enjoy people and puzzles, this may be the perfect position for you. Talk to a few different agents with different levels of experience and career paths and seek out knowledge on brands. The "model" that you choose can make all the difference in achieving a successful start in Real Estate and life long career. No two transactions are alike and that is what keeps the business fresh and exciting!

To Buy or Not to BuyI would say as a realtor, the question I am asked
"Dana McGushin was my real estate agent when I purchased a house in Fall 2016 and she was absolutely awesome!!! She made the whole process go very smoothly. She tuned into the details I was looking for in a home and found the perfect houses to show me. She was quick to set up showing appointments and to write up a contract when I found my ideal home.
Dana's communication skills and professionalism in speaking with others involved in the purchasing process is highly commendable. She is quick to respond to questions and to help in gathering needed information for closing. Because of her caring nature and expertise, my experience with buying a new home was pleasant and stress free. I highly recommend using Dana as your real estate agent when selling or purchasing a home!"
