I feel like my two biggest challenges that I'm constantly working thru are:  1)  Finding the right people and motivating them to work efficiently and stick with it.  2)  Having my profits greater than my expenses!   YIKES

I've had a couple deals that were years in the making due to credit issues/life changes/myriad other things.  Staying patient, keeping the course, and following up for such a long time were tough.  Thankfully more often than not, the clients help & hold up their end of the deal re: the work they need to do.

For one period in my career I had a broker that was - in my opinion - unethical in some of his dealings. My firm appointed him when the previous broker had to leave for famil reasons, and I almost left the firm after a couple of bad experiences with the new broker. I even considered making a formal complaint against him. Those were tough times and tough decisions early in my career. He was replaced before I got to my breaking point and his replacement was great so I'm glad I worked through that rough patch.

I had one very complex bank owned deal. There was an empty swimming pool in the backyard. The buyer's lender would not fund the property without the pool repaired and filled. My buyer put thousands of dollars into this during escrow Then, the bank's investor stalled about 30 extra days signing off on the home. There were a huge number of temper tantrums and upsets since my buyer had already put thousands into the repair. The home finally sold but it was a difficult one.

John, it was my first year in the business in 2009 transitioning from a teaching career to a real estate career when the economy was in the depths of a severe recession.

Just getting started. It is not easy to be successful in Real Estate and I would have to say that just getting going from scratch was one of the hardest things I have ever done.

I listed an REO piece of land and worked a deal along with a two other smaller tracts that I sold to the local city as part of drainage & water management project. It took 18 months, many city council meetings, nine lawyers, I believe 5 surverys, 7 appraisals, engineering studies, environmental studies, tense negotiations and four closing extensions.....I worked this deal very hard... ended up closing all three deals at 1.9 Million and made a really nice commission.
