Next month will mark my 10th anniversary being a real estate agent.  It is the most fantastic career  and I love going to work every day.   I work more hours than I ever did at any other job.   I have no guarantee of ever being paid again.   Now don't let these facts scare you away from getting licensed.   It could end up being the most significant thing you ever do careerwise in your life.

My motivation for selling homes started out from fear.   It was 2006 in early March and I had just learned that the company I worked for and had a vested interest in, was going to go out of business.   Our largest supplier declared a force majeure and commodity prices had gone through the roof.   We had presold deliveries stretching out over a 2 to 3 year period

So you are thinking of moving to Valparaiso, Indiana.  What should you expect?  What is it like?  Will you like living here?
