Hi, my name is Curt Pickett and selling real estate is the most rewarding job I've had, so far.
After graduating from Miami University in 1987, I started in the finance world. I've worked on near billion dollar projects while in the finance department of Speedway, LLC (subsidiary of Marathon Petroleum Company - EMRO Marketing Co., subsidiary of Marathon Oil, at that time). I also had a chance to work in Equatorial Guinea while at Speedway. At Triton Diving Services, LLC I was a commercial diver. Underwater construction and digging trenches in the sea floor of the Gulf of Mexico - all pipelines have to be buried due to shrimp nets, commercial and residential fishing,...the list goes on. Unfortunately, you live on a boat, a work boat, not a pleasure boat. This means isolation from society for weeks or months at a time. Although both of those careers are rewarding, I never talked with the end user, the person actually receiving something from my efforts.
