Things to do in Washington DC: THE REAL ESTATE FARMER-I've done real estate before I became a Real Estate Agent

THE REAL ESTATE FARMER-I've done real estate before I became a Real Estate Agent

   THE REAL ESTATE FARMER-I've done real estate before I became a Real Estate Agent. Yesterday I wrote a blog called

  THE REAL ESTATE FARMER-Where did the name come from?. I won't talk about it,I'll let you read it yourself. But while writing the blog,I realized something. In a way I have done real estate before I became a Real Estate Agent. While working on my father's farm,me along with a couple of my cousins would go to the lake and go fetch water. The water would be used to mix the dirt that will make the bricks to built the small houses. The houses would be where we would stay to either first eat breakfast before we began working on the farm,lunch/break(Some of my brothers and family members slept on the farm once)and to stay in case in started raining.

I guess my old man said why pay somebody to do something when you could do it yourself? We built I believe two small houses by ourselves.  They will make bricks and let them dry for about two days or so. Then they we will start building the house. We even built a poultry for my father's 40 pigs. It might have been more. That was pretty impressive considering none of us had knowledge,skills or experience in building homes.

Maybe I should become a home builder. I hear those guys make some really good money. But on second thought,I should stick to my day job and help the home builders sell their PG County MD New Construction Homes. So if you are looking to buy a new construction home in Prince George's County MD,Charles County MD,St.Mary's Country,Baltimore County MD,Montgomery County MD or Washington DC,please give me a call. I don't help build houses anymore,I am trying to help home builders sell them.

Lanre - Excellent post on before becoming a real estate agent. I met many real estate agents had other career before working in real estate fields.

So, you know how to make bricks? Now that's a skill!!! As expensive as those things are nowadays, methinks you have a second career if you decide to put your mind to it. Interesting story, Lanre.

Lanre--I am amazed.  I know that bricks were made by hand in the early days of our country, but you certainly don't look old enough to have made bricks.  But then would you believe that I helped side a barn, build a carport and install the half bath in our home?  That is just for starters.  In other words I am the 'go-fer' including up & down ladders.

Thanks for sharing your story.
