Byron "Buddy" Schilling
I grew up in the Chicago area. We used to watch the planes come and go from O'Hare Field. I dreamed of being a pilot since childhood. After graduating from Purdue University I was a Navy Pilot. I had dreamed of flying. My dream came true. I was blessed to be able to make it come true. Just like you can make your dreams come true.
There's no greater feeling of exhilaration, no greater feeling of power under your control than when you're strapped in the cockpit. You think about the task at hand instinctively using your training.
The idea is to get it up in the air. Keep it up there and do your job. Then bring it back home safely to see tomorrow.
You can make your dream come true too. I have found a new vocation for Helping other People. After flying for six years in the Navy I left the service, moved to Austin and joined JB Goodwin REALTORS® in 1981. Come fly with me and see where we go together in the exciting world of real estate!
If your dream is self-employment in real estate ---- I can Help You!!!
