My first sale!

So, as you know…I became a real estate agent recently. I stupidly took an online course (FYI-I do not learn well this way), studied my butt off for months and passed my state exam.

And then I made these.


I got some flack for the picture:
“It’s not normal.”
“It doesn’t have a boring brown backdrop with backlighting that makes my hair glow.”
I am not pretend popping my collar.
I don’t have a huge cheesy grin.
And, it’s the same one I use for my blog.

Guess what?! It’s me. In all my weird glory. And it seems to work for me.


This couple didn’t mind the picture on my biz card when it came to helping them buy their first house-granted this is my brother and sis-in-law.


Maybe they’re more forgiving of my weirdness than the average bear. They do have a lot of bear experience…


At any rate, my brother and his wife were determined to have me as their agent when they purchased their next home. They even waited on me to get my license and wanted to be my first sale!

I owe them big time. And, since they bought another fixer-upper, I’m sure they’ll find a way to allow me to repay them.

(Check out the last house they remodeled. It’s so cool, it was featured in the online magazine Prairie Hive.)

    Hey! My sister works for KW. Started in Tulsa/Bartlesville then Edmond then Fayetteville, Arkansas and she’s in Memphis now. She would completely support your choice in picture! Cindy Ward, she gets around, I’m sure you will meet her.

      Thanks for liking the pic! I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for this emphasis Cindy Ward. The name sounds awfully familiar already. Weird?!

    WAY exciting!! How wonderful! Love your card too.

      Thank you! You are so awesome. Thank you for the positive words about the card-I know it’s unorthodox…but, it’s me!

    Congratulations on your first sale! I sold real estate here in Oregon for 7 years and had a lot of fun & met some really great people. With your outgoing, fun personality you will do great! Best of luck!

    • Rebekah says:

      Thank you so much. I just sat through an entire day of real estate classes. Sometimes, I wonder if I’m going to do well in this business. I’m so glad I read your comment. It turned my thoughts back to the positive side of things. Thanks again!

    YOU GO GIRL! That is awesome!

    How are you? I haven’t talked to you in forever!

      I know! I’ve been a little MIA lately. With hubby graduating from the fire department and studying all of the time-and then me studying all of the time-I’ve had little extra time! But now, we are getting into a routine. Hopefully, I can climb out from under my rock!

    Congratulations girl 🙂 My hubby will be getting his real estate license soon, too, as he takes the test May 4. And I totally agree with you about the online thing – it’s best to just go to class for 2 weeks from what I can tell.

    I can’t wait to see what you guys do with the new place 🙂
