Hub Edge Realty, LLC is now recruiting real estate agents. New to the business? Have lots of experience? Maybe your current office is stale? Maybe you’re paying too many fees? Maybe you need some direction and motivation? There’s no pressure.
I’ve been selling real estate since 1999. I’ve sold over $100,000,000 worth. I have tons of experience and I’ve experienced the pain, just like Michael “Mickey” Goldmill, and I can help you avoid some of that pain. I have lots of experience to share. Let’s sit down and have some coffee. Maybe we’ll make a connection?
We’re hiring commercial agents and residential agents. Rental agents and sales agents. We want to build a team and our commission structure reflects that. We feature recruiting splits and profit sharing. We’re interested in helping the communities we serve and pledge to donate at least 1% of gross commissions to local non-profit corporations.
Mickey: Hello kid. I seen your light. Can I come in?
Rocky: Yeah, sure.
Mickey: Yeah. Good… Hey, is a nice place here. Alright, anyway, what I come to tell you is that…, eh, …that what happened to you is freak luck!
Rocky: Yeah, freak luck.
Mickey: Ain’t it true? Look, look at the other guys. Now they’re good fighters, right? They’re colorful, they got good records. They fight they guts out for peanuts. But you… …you get a shot at the TITLE.
Rocky: Yeah, freak luck is a strange thing, you know.
Mickey: Yeah, sure it is. Can I sit down?
Rocky: Yeah, sure.
Mickey: Oh… What the hell are those?
Rocky: Oh, those, they’re domestic turtles. The, the one on top is Cuff and the other is Link and the rest of ‘em are marbles.
Mickey: Yeah? They make good soup, do they? Anyway, look, I’m here to warn ya, that you gotta be very careful about this shot that you got at the title. Because, I don’t, like the Bible says, you ain’t gonna get a second chance.
Rocky: Yeah, all right.
Mickey: You thought of that, huh? Well, what you need is a manager. A manager. Listen to me. I know, because I’ve been in this racket for 50 years.
Rocky: 50 years, huh?
Mickey: 50 Years. God! I’ve seen it all. All of it. You know what I done?
Mickey: I have done it all. You shoulda seen me when I knocked the guinea, Russell, outta the ring. Outta the goddamn ring, I tell ya! September the 14th, 1923. And it was the same night that Firpo knocks Dempsey outta the ring. The same night. So who gets the publicity? Figure that out?
Mickey: That’s right, but why?
Rocky: Cos he was champ.
Mickey: No! Because he had a MANAGER. I had nothin’ then. I wanna show you somethin’. I want you to look at my face for a minute. Look, look at this. I got 21 stitches over this left eye. I got 34 stitches over this eye. You know what? I had my nose busted 17 times. The last time was with that fight with Sailor Mike. And I got the clippin’ here. A good fight. Read that? Well, it doesn’t matter. Anyway, he put this vegetation on my ear. Ah, Rocky Marciano! You know, you kinda remind me of the Rock, do you know that?
Rocky: You really think so?
Mickey: That’s right. You move like him. You, and you got heart like he did.
Rocky: Yeah, I got heart but I ain’t got no locker, do l Mick?
Mickey: Eh, anyway, you know, when I begun in this business kid. I, eh, look, I, I wanna make a suggestion, don’t drink that piss before a fight. You know, no good for ya. You don’t mind my sayin’… Anyway, you know, when I started this racket, pugs like us we was treated like dogs. For 10 bucks you gotta tear somebody’s throat out but I never had no management. You know, one time, this, this son of a bitch that I fought, you know, he put a nail right there.
Rocky: The thumb?
Mickey: Yeah, the thumb, the glove. And he punched so many holes in my face. You know, I had this spit shootin’ outta my cheeks. Can you imagine that? Anyway, when I tell you what I looked like when I was, eh, in my prime… I want ya to look at somethin’. Will ya look at that? Look at that! That’s the way I looked before these guys got at me.
Rocky: That’s nice.
Rocky: You don’t take very good care of the picture though.
Mickey: But I never had, I never had no management! That’s the trouble. Now I got all this knowledge. I got it up here, now I wanna give it to you. I wanna give you this knowledge. I wanna take care of you. I wanna make sure that all this shit that happened to me doesn’t happen to you. You know what I mean?
Rocky: The fight’s set.
Mickey: Listen to me, I wanna be your manager! You follow that, do you?
Rocky: The fight’s set. I don’t need no manager.
Mickey: But you can’t buy what I’m gonna give ya: I mean, I’ve got pain and I’ve got experience.
Rocky: No, I got pain and I’ve got experience too.
Mickey: Now listen, kid…
Rocky: Hey yo! Hey, Mick. I need your help about ten years ago, right? Ten years ago?
Rocky: You never helped me none. You didn’t care.
Mickey: Well, if you wanted help… I say, if you wanted help, why didn’t you ask? Why didn’t you just ask me kid?
Rocky: Look, I asked, but you never heard nothin’!
Mickey: Well… Heh… I, eh… I’m 76 years old. And, eh… Oh…
