Check it out at www.theheartofthemarket.com. What do you love so much about being a REALTOR®? Is it helping buyers achieve the American dream of owning a home, advising sellers, the flexible work schedule or perhaps how you are able to use your creativity in ways you never thought possible?

When people seek a professional no matter what specialty that is—be it a REALTOR®, doctor, dentist, tax adviser, stock broker or lawyer—they prefer to work with someone who truly loves their job and shows it in more ways than one. How are you showing your clients you love your career? What does your career say about you? How have you developed your niche in the business?
