PinSpend any time with Linda Aaron (Aka Skynnard - we FINALLY hear THAT story!) and you'll immediately fall in love with her generous spirit, her love of life and her commitment to her agents!
Linda serves as the Training Director and Operations Coordinator for the very large and successful company Coldwell Banker Bain/Seal in Seattle, WA. Linda has had to reinvent herself a few times over the years and it's always fascinating to hear how someone landed in real estate... Linda's story focuses on abundance; life transition and reinvention, photography (Check out her photography blog Skynnard's Lens to view her amazing photos) and the love of learning! (Probably why she makes such an awesome Trainer!) Untitled design Pin Linda says on the topic of reinvention: "Even though we are an industry trying to attract young people there will always be older people coming into RE as a second career and we need them - they bring a life experience.  (TWEETABLE!) I couldn't agree more! Here's one of the FEW pictures I have with Linda (with Anne Jones, in NYC for Inman Connect January 2014 - Thanks to Heather Ostrom for taking the pic!) And reach out to Linda on Twitter @Skynnard~ She's the bomb! I'm Teri Conrad, and I am here with Linda "Skynard" Aaron, who works for CB Bain down in Seattle. Linda: We have, just over 1,000, about. Linda: I know. Linda:They gave it to me. Yeah. Linda: Oh, my gosh. It's a silly story. A very close friend of mine, [1:40], who is an agent with our company â€" in Seattle we call them brokers, but for this conversation, I'll call them agents so people know what we're talking about. She and I worked in the same office and became extremely good friends. We did some traveling together through the years, and we were fast and furiously trying to trim ourselves down for a European trip. We were going to go for two weeks, so we each had an alter ego named for our weight loss program that we were on, and our heavy duty power walking to get down so we could eat like fiends in Italy. Teri: Brilliant. Linda: Mine, because of the connection â€" I'm from the south and my southern roots, and a takeoff on my name was "Lynyrd," and so she started calling me "Lynyrd," and then it morphed into "Skynnard. Linda: It just stuck. Linda: That's the current one that's floating around. Linda: Wow. Linda: I used to drive a tractor! That's how it started. Linda: Yeah, and early '90s. Linda: Shot up there one time: really fun. Linda: I know, I know. Linda: Within reason, it's up for grabs. Linda: I have my website and I have it copyrighted, just because there are some things that at some point, I might want to use for my own purposes. What we have found is it's challenging is finding a good picture of Linda, because you're always the one behind the camera. Linda: Most of my profile pictures have a camera up to one eye. Linda: Wow. Linda: That's where I met my husband. We married, and then we decided we were going to start a family. We just discussed it and decided that we really felt it was important for me to be in the home, with the kids: raising the kids. At that time, he was doing a lot of promotions and job changes across the country. I think at one point we moved five times in six years. It was craziness. Teri: Wow. Linda: I was setting up a new home, and getting ready for the next phase. Linda: It was really fun. Linda: I didn't really know why I was doing that, but I took computer classes and graphics class, because I was just always interested in something artistic. You just think, "Oh, it's Linda going off and taking photography classes. Oh, it's Linda going off and taking graphics and computer classes. Linda: Some of them, yes. Linda: The way everything unfolded, it was like, "Okay, I'm doing what I'm meant to do," without really realizing. Linda: The teaching thing: I think I was always meant to be a teacher. Linda: Oh, yeah. Oh, I'm the poster child. Linda: They do. Linda: Right. Linda: I think that's a huge distinction. Linda: Everything isn't for everybody. I think if you can find the one relatable piece â€" so, here's an example: a woman significantly older than I am who's still in the business, who has done tremendous production in and out over the years, and she came â€" I was doing a little Twitter workshop, and she came to my Twitter workshop. She sat right in the front row, because, bless her heart, she was determined she was going to learn this new stuff. I could see her just shaking her head, like this, through the whole thing. Linda: If you're not there, you won't know that your people are there. Linda: Yeah. Linda: We teach a week long â€" it's 30 hours, it's called Fast Start. Linda: I am very vocal about it, in that I disapprove of it. Linda: I think you have to figure out where you're placing with it. Linda: Right, and talking about how you're helping people. Teri: Yeah. Linda: I think most of the people in real estate like helping people. Linda: It is. You're constantly learning in this business. Teri: Always. Linda: That's why, when somebody says to me, "I'm too old to do computers, or social media," I look at them; I go, "I don't believe it, because look at what you do every day, putting these complex transactions together. Linda: Yes. Sure. Aren't we all? Linda: That's just me. I'm a "why" girl. Linda: Absolutely. Absolutely. That's the problem. Linda: The extraordinary thing about that is we started doing this in 2014 with Fast Start, because I felt like I can talk theory all day long. Kimberly [31:35] is our primary Fast Start instructor right now: she is semi-retired, I absolutely won't let her go, from managing one of our most profitable branches in Seattle. She did that for years, and built this just lovely pool of agents in that office that I draw from for these classes. Kimberly and I teach â€" we're such a good combination, because she's teaching all the real estate stuff, and I'm teaching all the other things that brokers need to know to get their presence online, and get moving in the business, and how they let people know what we're doing. Linda: Yeah. Linda:I love that, because it's a gift to have people like that in the company. This is your one life: you get to the end of your life, and you're looking back, and you've had all your chapters, your re-inventions: What's meaningful to you, Linda? What are the things that you're going to look back and say, "Wow, this is what I stood for"? Linda: You mean how do I want to be remembered? Teri: Sure. Linda: Gosh, I guess I want to be remembered as being a generous person who gave something back to lots of people. Linda: That is a testament. Thank you for sharing that. Linda: Yeah, no, I just don't think it's that interesting. Linda: Thank you so much. Linda: Okay, okay. Throwback Thursday. Teri: Thank you, Linda.
