On the Cusp of a New Real Estate Adventure




So, I’m about to embark on a new adventure. Tomorrow I’m beginning classes to prepare for my real estate exam. You might have heard me mention this a few times over the last several months, but the day arrived faster than I expected. Well, it didn’t really, but it seems like it did.

While I don’t intend to quit painting or going to the studio on Saturdays, this is going to cut into my time to do so until I wrangle out some sort of system to do both.

My Realty Focus

What I’m most interested in doing is finding properties for people who want to move from the city to the country.

And there’s another thing. I don’t think I can do real estate under my pseudonym ‘Madison Woods’. I don’t even think I can refer to real estate I’ve listed (once I manage to get some listings) on this website because I go by Madison here, unless I refer to my real name me as a different entity. Which in some ways, it is. However, I should be able to link to my listings at the official website in my posts. Anyway, I’ll do a ‘real name’ reveal for those of you who only know me as Madison once I get my license. Because if I don’t pass the test, there’s no reason to muddy the water. I’ll have to change my bio and everything to include the real name, I guess. It gets pretty confusing when I think of this too long, so I’ll just stop here now.

Combining Art and Real Estate

I’m already thinking of all the landscape and real estate paintings I’ll be giving to the old and new owners of properties I sell. Though if I were being smart about this, rather than going into real estate myself, I should market myself to other realtors to do paintings for their gifts to buyers/sellers. But I want to try this. My daughter really enjoys her work, and she’s the broker I’ll be working for. It’ll be interesting to get an inside view of her professional life, too.

First and foremost, apart from being an artist and author, Madison is a nature enthusiast. She enjoys using local resources in every aspect of her life and considers the land she and her husband live on as partners in life. They care for the land and the land cares for them. She’s an herbalist, gardener, and wildcrafter of medicinal plants.
