Becoming A Realtor

Our nephew just finished up his classes to become a real estate agent. He did really good and took it very seriously. He doesn't quite know where he wants to go from here--but being the good salesman that he is, I'm sure he'll do just fine.

I marvel at how much work goes into being a Realtor. Not only the knowledge of all things real estate, but they were with us for every appointment we had at the house before we closed. The appraisal, home inspection, final walk through--all of them. And none of these appointments were quick--the home inspection took nearly 4 hours--and he was there the entire time. I was just amazed! Here in Illinois everything at closing is handled by a Real Estate Attorney--but even at closing--our Realtor was right by our sides!
