The daily reminders you are likely giving your spouse that you are a Real Estate Agent.

Published May 5, 2015 by Real Estate Leads



Real estate agents have it tough as well, but being a spouse of one is really no consolation, but over the years, it most often is all worth the struggle.

Here are the top daily reminders that you are married to a real estate agent:


  • Calling your Significant other is often impossible.

Agents are often consumed with being on their phones. Clients are always top-priority 9 to 5. Husbands and wives are often given the backseat. Even your simple appreciation of them can also be seen as an interruption, but at least they appreciate that you are just appreciating them, so often all balances out day to day.

  • You have expertise with MLS.

If you earned a commission, maybe just a dollar, for each hectic call where your beloved is asking you to look up a property, well, that would be a lot in commissions too.

  • A higher than average percentage of your friends are mortgage brokers.

Are Christmas parties, although a blast, really just business functions? But you aren’t allowed to talk about much of what happened after the alcohol has worn off…

  • Summer Vacations – no more guarantees.

School is out. Home sales are hot. How many times have you and lovey planned that special getaway and been disappointed that something else came up? Husbands and wives of Real Estate agents quickly discover that any vacations are always at risk of being played by ear.

  • You discovered there is no point in arguing about new clothes and cars.

A Real Estate Agent’s image sells, a sad truth perhaps but a reality. Style breeds increased success. But, yes, those juicy commissions make it all worthwhile after all.

  • You have gotten used to being a tax write-off.

All that time you have helped your spouse, all those house making copies, sorting through endless emails, and cooking for your favorite sales agent – are not for nothing. When you don’t know if you are more of an employee or spouse, then you can always remember it because you are married to an agent.

  • You’ve finally decided to make your car off limits.

Most spouses of agents would agree. There are only so many random manila folders and MLS printouts that you can handle the sight of before declaring your car a real-estate-free-zone.
