I was at the gym last weekend reciting the no pain no gain mantra while trying to block out the noise around me, when my thoughts got interrupted by two words “real estate” — spoken by the ladies chatting next to me. Enough with my personal pep talk, this peeked my interest.

“Tell me more,” I asked.
She said it was a good meeting. The broker seemed knowledgeable and very eager to help her. The company had training programs and a good reputation in the community.

She explained that upon leaving, the broker’s farewell included the following statement:
“Kiddo, we’d love to have you join the team.”
