Ever feel like leaving? How about leaving, and after you have left to find out that you may have been wrong in your decision?
That has to be the worst feeling in the world. I left the LAPD after 17 years. I remained a full line reserve office teaching Firearms and Tactics until 2013. Me Resigning from a Career with the LAPD was the right thing to do.
Today, the past of me being a Big City Motor Cop, follows with me being in the business of representing buyers and sellers of real estate in the Santa Clarita valley cities and vicinities.
There is one thing I do miss. Besides being one of the best Law Enforcement agencies in the world – I miss the Camaraderie. The Brotherhood. The hugs during roll call (kidding(jk)…). Not may hugs were given in Roll Call (briefing). 🙂
I have actually found more hugs in Real Estate. However, the competition is much higher. I guess the only competition we had on the LaPD was who could get more “Franks”. That is police vernacular for “felony arrests”. We also had competition over who could get more drunk drivers off of the streets when I was working the DUI squad on Motors.
My adjustment from full time cop to full time realtor was interesting to say the least. I don’t think it’s over yet. I hate when clients are lied to. I don’t like when other agents are lying to me. I don’t like high pressure and I think that everyone should be deal with as I want to be dealt with….
I’m sure that will never change.
