Technically, I've had TONS of 12 hour days but the LONGEST day would be the one that negatively impacts the energy around me & leaves me a frustrated, irritated ball of an agent.  Luckily, I can't recall letting such a day have me in some time!!!

I start work around 7:30am & on a light day I'm done between 3:30 & 5. I consider that a normal 8 hour work day.

Many other days though, this whole week in fact, It'll be more like 7:30am-8:30pm- it's just really busy right now & I'm grateful for that!

Prayful I clearly remember the longest day in 2008 when stock market plunged and real estate market tanked. There we were sitting, with a big office, agents and staff and we knew what was about to happen - but had no idea it would be that much of a downfall in the Phoenix area. Every day was long for a number of years. Thankfully we've moved way past those days - way past.

when I was actively working subdivisions, I would work 10 to 12 hours a day.... that was average... my day began when the builder's day began and I was at the site when the subs arrived.... there were many days that were 14 hour days.... but the money was worth it...
