I was a managing broker once. Don’t look so surprised, it’s clear I have a way with people and so I decided to give running an office a try. A week later, I realized that I actually have to listen to what others say and attend regular meetings. That was the end of that. At my current office, I have a love/hate relationship with my MB. She loves the money I bring in but hates my attitude. Luckily, money beats attitude any day. Even luckier is that she doesn’t know that I’m Agent X, so she won’t get upset when she reads this. BTW, there’s a rumor floating around that I work with @properties, so the MBs at that office might want to take inventory.

Anyone else get the notice that Jenny Sepulveda has too many Facebook friends to add more? Did anyone know that was even possible? I saw that movie and it looks like those geeks could handle a problem like that.
It’s cold out and the only good thing about that is holiday parties!! Some have open invites, and some will only allow the really special agents to attend, and those are the ones I will be crashing. Keep in mind that open doesn’t necessarily mean free.
