I work as a real estate agent, for a big property corporation which has more than 500 employees.  Their main office is in Shanghai.   I work mostly with a retirement community.  I receive a lot of clients who are elderly people and then I will introduce the houses and apartments that are available.

Available:  able to be purchased/lived in/ used/ ready for use/ at hand.

Why did you choose to do that kind of work?

I prefer to work with a lot of people to work in office alone.  On other hand working for this job I can get a good salary.  when I talk to a lot of varied clients it can practice my talk skills.  It’s the talk skills is my weakness before.  A good thing now I like to talk with every person.
