Yes after 25 years I feel the same as you. Middle man and very un appreciated. On call 24/7 really takes its toll. To never really be off. No work life balance.

Some days I would trade it all in to work on a farm again. Everyone is verbally abusive...not cows...they appreciate everything.

Marie, I get where you are at. Sometimes it is good to take a break...or even a vacation! It can be stressful but where is that stress coming from and how do you deal with it? I have always told and demonstrated to my team that I treat everyone the way I want to be treated. The difference with me though is that I refuse to accept anything less in return. Sometimes it’s just how you respond to your stressors that set the tone for your situation. I don’t know if I can help you, but if you would like to chat I would be happy to give you my phone number. It’s a great industry and I’ve been in it for 30 years. Some days are really harder than others and it helps to have a great support system. I promise you that anything you are going through, there are many of us who have gone through it as well. Maybe we can help you. Hang tough and send me a message if you’d like to talk

Not alone, I've noticed in my region once people hit around 35 they either move up or move on... most the people I stared out in the business with have retired from it and moved on to a less stressful field. I'm up in the air right now after doing it 15yrs, the residents seem to be worse and our region is so catty it's not even fun anymore. Companies are horrible to work for as well, I was in that same spot burnt myself out running my property for 3yrs without a break... finally put a vacation request in and in return they let me go the next day. For me I just want to work for someone who values me as an employee, where I don't run myself into the ground, and be in a field with less drama/cattiness.

I've been trying to get out of the industry for YEARS! People seem to think that we only show apartments.

This industry, you’ll either love it or hate it. I left the industry for about 8 years and thought I’d never come back. This industry gives you so much experience in customer service, legal documents, policy, procedures, and not to mention all the computer and administrative experience to possibly handle any office. I’m glad I cane back.

For those who did get out, what did you go to? What field did your skills transfer too?
