My two loves are chamber music and real estate (well, there's also a guy, but that doesn't play into this post). And music and real estate work a lot the same way.
A chamber group has a conductor. In real estate, my conductor is my broker, and I'm lucky to have a really great one who knows the score.
A chamber group has a bunch of people playing different instruments - violins, violas, celli, and winds. In a real estate transaction, you have a bunch of people with different parts to play - , buyers, sellers, agents, home inspector, loan officer, appraiser, and title attorney.
In a chamber group, if one player is out of tune or hits a sour note, we all sound awful. In a real estate transaction, if one of the players throws a bad punch, it can hit a sour note for the entire transaction.
So, when my parents had doubts about my wanting to major in flute and piccolo in college, it was actually a discipline that prepared me for my career in real estate! Actually, it prepares you for any career that involves close team work!
