Whether you’re dating or married to someone in real estate, the truth is you’re in a three-party relationship. There’s you, your main squeeze, and the business that’s guaranteed to keep things interesting.

If you’re thinking about pairing up with a real estate buff, take notes on the list below. If you’re already in, thank your lucky stars because you’ll never be without a story to tell or some random number on your caller ID:

1. Flirting and lead generation start to look alike.
Only a real estate agent’s other half will send their mate out into the world looking their best, hoping they come back with lots of phone numbers from interested people. Face it: Someone else’s reason to be jealous inspires your thoughts of a trip to Cabo.

2. Odd calls mean a happy mate.
In a normal relationship, random numbers or late night calls would be cause for concern. When you’re with an agent, they mean business is good. In addition, you know you’re in love when you start answering the phone like you’re the office receptionist and know the qualifying script.

3. Weekends = Me Time.
In most relationships, weekends mean dates, romance, and quality time together. When you’re with a real estate agent, you probably party with your friends or tackle errands more than most. That is, unless you consider attending an open house a hot date.

4. Tax deductible vacations.
You know the love has gotten real when your vacation locations are centered around the next season’s real estate conference. One of the big benefits of “standing by your man/woman” when they’re in real estate is planning your getaways around continuing education or networking events.

5. Furniture randomly disappears.
Nothing sells faster than a well-staged home. And if you’re paired up with an agent, you know this because sometimes pieces of your well-staged home may disappear.

Every relationship is give and take. In real estate, sometimes the give is your favorite lamp or painting.

6. You hear mobile voices (and they’re very motivational).
Whether it’s the self-pep-talk or someone like Brian Buffini on an audiobook, if you’re courting a real estate agent you’ve probably caught them motivating themselves on the go. It’s ok, they aren’t that crazy. Enjoy the hum that gets the deal done.

7. You know real estate TV shows can be hogwash.
If you have a hard time watching the 30-minute real estate hunts or get a feeling similar to road rage when you flip to HGTV, you might be dating an agent. You know the realities are a lot less pretty, and that’s okay. It just means you’re really connecting with your mate.

Agents are special people—to work with, to know, and especially to love. These are our seven signs that you’re dating or married to an agent.
