I got out of the real estate industry right before the market crashed and miss it dearly. In addition to running my own department, I took a position with the bank because I knew I could advance and did. I only planned to stay with the bank 3 years because I have to drive downtown everyday due to the location in which I work at. Well, 9 years later and I'm still there! I just started to look and see what other employment is out there. I hope to find a place where I can commute via the train and/or be closer to home or work out of my home (1-2 days per week, 3-4 days in the office).
