Selling Real Estate And Law School
Selling real estate and law school has come up in my life on a few occasions. While managing the Sacramento and Placer county regions for a previous real estate company, I almost applied to Lincoln Law School. Our risk management attorney, Eric Larsen, rest his soul, had encouraged me to apply. He wrote a letter of recommendation giving me a five-star review to suggest I be grandfathered into the program. Eric was my mentor. He taught me everything I know about real estate law, disclosure, due process and lawsuits, etc. I was so fortunate to work alongside him for almost 10 years.
With my previous law enforcement, this seemed like a natural path, selling real estate and law school both seemed doable at the time. After much long and careful thought, I decided that I would not return to night school. I moved on and left management to sell real estate at RE/MAX Gold. I now use my knowledge to help our clients and our team to excel in what we do best, sell real estate.
Of course, the beauty of this story is my niece, Candace Guthmiller, who worked part-time as my social media manager, just graduated from UC Davis Law School. The photo was a picture from the weekend at her graduation party. Left to right, yours truly in the red coat, Candace’s dad, John, my sister Lisa, Candace’s brother John Daniel, aka Bubby, directly in front of Bubby is my niece, Candace. To the right of her is Wendy, who is married to my cousin Michele, to the far right in the picture.
Candace has been in college for many years. Now, she enters the workforce with full-time employment. She has been pre-hired by a large tax law firm in Roseville. The grueling study to take the Bar now begins for the next few months. With only a 30% pass rate, the Bar is not an easy exam. Candace’s mom has been a tremendous help to her. No matter what the obstacles Lisa, my sis, worked tirelessly to ensure her daughter had an excellent education. The photo below of Candace and her mom, my Sis.
Candace did have a bit of taste of what my job is about, by watching me sell real estate. She was eager to learn more about what I do as a Sacramento top producer. Working for our team, she was able to use her creativity in marketing online. Candace is also quite a talented artist. I hope someday She will go into real estate law or probate. Both would be amazing fields of practice helping people. Not that tax law is not essential, of course. Fly high and long Candace, as you now put your mark on the world.
