Realtor job description (partial):
Meet people online, put hitchhikers your car, take them to vacant homes, and say “How do you like it?”
That sounds safe, right?
In this post-Weinstein era of #metoo, we have to ask where we draw the line between hunting business and self-preservation, when the person with the power in a sales transaction is always the client with money. How long do we stay on the line with a slightly fishy caller when our job is to protect the public’s access to fair housing? What protections can we comfortably and confidently put in place while not alienating our authentic clients?
You’ll have plenty of opportunities in a military career to live on base, and I understand the tendency to play it safe. But, I encourage you to get out there and try something new, experience this place fully, and embrace your time in Hawaii. You may even fall in love with it and choose to extend your tour or return for retirement.
Sunshine, ocean, rainbows, and umbrella drinks are a regular part of life. Socks and mittens are not.
So, when Hawaii residents take a vacation, where do we go?
