Rural Roots #13: Rearview Mirror Thoughts

A few weeks back I found myself Business planning for the year ahead. As we start the year 2020 I can’t help but reflect on the year that has just passed. Looking over what was accomplished in 2019 and the things we plan to execute in 2020 there was one item that stuck out for me. The number of kilometers driven in 2019. 45,000 to be exact!

This number excites me suggesting there were many opportunities that came with each kilometer driven. Every one of those kilometers evolved into a story. Showing properties to one of our first time buyers, driving to Smoky Lake to meet a Farmer who’s considering selling his land or all the families I helped find the perfect home.

Often when driving I will catch a glimpse in my rearview mirror of images that take my breath away. The amazing Alberta sunsets that mirror themselves on a gravel road or seeing cows in a pasture amongst rolling hills from the beautiful rancher home your clients just purchased.

Reflecting back on the journey through all the photos and kilometers provides a glimpse of my life as a Realtor on the Road.
