Real estate is all about experience as no two contracts are ever alike. Goverment changes in laws as well as environmental rules come into play more often than one would think just walking out of real estate school doors with a license. I was first licensed in 1979 in Florida where wet land and environmental rules probably began to California where environmental rules raised the bar and then some. Returning to my home state in 1995 I permanently set up shop and do not intend to leave my "home land Texas" ever again. My most recent Texas years have been very diverse from the helping with the layout of a residential neighborhood on acre plus sites in a rural area of Ft. Bend County to the establishment of an HOA in a new mid town condo development.
