Here’s Corey!

Hey guys, I just wanted to drop in and introduce myself. For those of you that don’t know, I am the other person in all these photos – Amanda’s husband.

I am currently a senior at Texas A&M University in glorious College Station, TX. Yes, I am the reason we had to stay until May. Amanda blames our lease, but lets face it: if I wasn’t still in school, we would have signed a shorter lease and already be back in Austin (I can’t wait).

I am studying accounting, but it’s basically a waste of time because once I get out of school I will be pursuing a life long dream, to be just like Justin Beiber… err, I mean, to become a real estate agent. I don’t know how long this has been a dream of mine, but let’s just say that I have been watching House Hunters and other real estate centered shows for as long as I can remember. I have always enjoyed looking at homes and especially enjoy following the market. I guess thats the math nerd in me. I can’t get enough of those numbers.

Honestly, until Amanda and I started getting serious about our future, I thought that I was going to be doing public accounting for the rest of my life. But that just wasn’t for me. I love people and can’t wait to help people though what can be among the most difficult yet rewarding moments in their life.

I am also a bit of a renovation nut. I can’t wait to dig deep and turn a house into a home with Amanda. Having something tangible that you can walk into a room and admire is a feeling that is unexplainable. It makes me feel a sense of accomplishment that nothing else can. Well, unless you count making Amanda happy. When I can get a smile out of her, that is truly devoid of words.

Anyways, enough with the sappy stuff. I am a man and I am here to do man things. Sawdust, motor oil, and beer! There, that’s better.

What gives you that sense of accomplishment?

  1. So interesting! My husband was an accounting major and now works in public accounting (so he’s traveling all the time right now) and I’ve always be interested in becoming a real estate agent! I majored in Early Childhood Education and am working with kids now, but it’s always in the back of my mind. I’ve always watched those home shows too, and I love home decor/interior design. After buying our house and having a great experience with our realtor, I was even more intrigued! Can’t wait to see how things unfold for you two!


  2. Lol! “I am a man and I’m here to do man things!” Love it. :)

    Well, good. Glad you’re going into real estate – you help us find our house once I FINALLY talk Josh into moving to Austin. :)

    Lol, I’ll be there waiting for the call. Oh, and you can leave out the can. Can sounds too close to try and as Yoda says “Try not. Do… or do not. There is no try.” I will find you a house if you make it to Austin.
