RE: resignation on March 7, 2022

Dear Ms. Hustle:

It is with great regret that I must inform you that in two weeks’ time I am resigning from the position of real estate agent. I understand that my departure will cause a disruption, and I will do everything in my power to facilitate the smooth transition of duties to my replacement.

My decision to resign is not due to any shortcomings from this company, but to a recent diagnosis of a severe health problem. I was advised by my physician to cease working as soon as possible. After much consideration, I must agree with my doctor’s recommendation, because I cannot function at the typical level that I have no doubt you have come to expect, and focus on my health at the same time. 

While working here, the support and encouragement I have received and the connections I have made, both professional and personal, have been invaluable. I will miss the challenging nature of my work and the enjoyable atmosphere and coworkers. I will always be grateful.

Dear Jane Doe, the manager

I am writing to advise you, with the utmost respect, that I have taken the choice to permanently quit the brokerage and transfer my business to another organization.

I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for all you have done for my company and for myself. I sincerely value the lessons I’ve picked up throughout my stay. I want you to understand that you are not the focus of my motivations. 

In actuality, you were the sole factor in my extended stay. I genuinely appreciate your help and encouragement.

While there are numerous variables, both professionally and purely personally, that went into my choice, I debated it for months before making it. I admire you for making professional choices throughout the years that you understood were essential for private reasons. 

I am certain that you will respect my choice in the same way. I do not want to get into a discussion about why I am leaving.

I commit to handling the following escrows with the utmost care and abide by your broker file policies as I presently have the following transactions:

Listing – Pena, 1234 Easy Street

Listing: Doe at 1234 Second Street

Listing – Doe at 1234 Third Street

Once again, thank you for everything. I’ll keep you updated on the status of the aforementioned transactions.
