What Do You Like to Do on a Day Off?

Time off may be a bit of a luxury for a busy real estate agent, but these St. Louis professionals know how to make the most of it. Here are some of their favorite ways to unwind when they’re not negotiating contracts or closing sales.

Whenever I get a day off, I always spend it with my 10-year-old twin sons. We love getting out and doing anything active together! Our favorite activities are running and cycling.

Although days off are few and far between in this business, when I get them, they are spent with family and friends. I love taking my kids to experience all of the amazing attractions St. Louis offers. We visit the zoo and The Magic House frequently and love meeting friends at different parks throughout the city. On a free night, my husband and I really enjoy trying new restaurants.

On my days off, I want to spend time with my family. Whether it’s playing golf with my son and husband or going shopping and out to lunch with my daughter, I want to be with the people I miss most when I’m busy working. I’m also devoted to my workouts at Shred415, and whenever I have a chance to go to brunch with a group of Shredders, I take it!
— Jody Johnson, Janet McAfee Real Estate

My favorite things include hanging out over coffee with my friends after a long run or bike ride in Forest Park (with no time restrictions, this can turn into half a day!); taking books or the newspaper outside and sitting in the sun; escaping to my chalet at Innsbrook where I like to hike and kayak; or going to the theater or cinema. If I have a few days off, I’ll take a short trip to visit new cities or my kids. Even just one full day off is paradise, and I never take it for granted.
