Did You Know Realtors Are The Happiest At Their Jobs?

kid_clipart_girl_smilingAccording to a survey conducted by CareerBliss.com Realtors are in the top three happiest careers in America!  The other two that make up the top three are construction managers and quality assurance engineers.

How The Survey Was Completed

Employees throughout the country were asked to rate their jobs based on ten factors that affect their happiness.  65,000 employees were surveyed on topics that included one’s relationship with boss and co-workers, work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, daily tasks and control over the work one does each day.  Each of these factors were rated on a five point scale and indicated how important each was to their overall happiness.

What the CareerBliss Chief Executive Thinks

Heidi Golledge, chief executive officer is quoted:  “It is vital to understand how employees in these positions feel about their work environment.  Whether you are someone looking to transition into one of these careers, or are currently in one of these jobs, this can help arm you with the information needed to truly understand the rewards and challenges.  In addition, any employer managing people in these positions can gauge how their employees may feel, and can adjust elements to help create happier work environments.”

What Realtors Score

Realtors scored a 4.26 out of 5 on the index score.  Satisfaction with the control they have over the daily work is cited as the one of the main sources of happiness and most like their boss.  According to the survey Realtors are responsible for buying, selling and renting property for their clients.  They study property listings, interview prospective clients, accompany clients to property site, discuss conditions of the sale and draw up real estate contracts.  I didn’t know that everything I did in a day was that easy to explain!

What I Think

What is your opinion on this survey?  I definitely think the ability to have flexible hours is a great advantage in my career but it also means there is no limit to the number of hours I can work in a week!  I would say my main source of happiness in being a Realtor is helping families find their dream home and the closing day with all the excitement of moving into a new home.  I love it when I am working with a buyer and we walk into a home and know that it is the perfect one for them.

So if you would like to make me happy by finding a dream home for you, contact me or start your property search so that together we can find the home of your dreams!

Remember, it is always Toasty in Naples and you deserve your piece of Naples sunshine.
