As a REALTOR®, I know how easy it can be to get caught up in completing paperwork and catching new leads. Let's be honest. Real estate jobs are unique. Flexible schedules alone give us an advantage over the hardworking people in an office from 8 to 5 every day. Plus, we have the opportunity to meet a variety of different people. This means we can really become part of the community. It makes a big difference when you help non-profit organizations market their events simply by posting it on your Facebook or Twitter pages. Or you can try organizing an event for your neighborhood. My two personal favorites are giving appreciation to veterans and helping domestic violence victims. Give some effort back to whatever cause is close to your heart.
