What industry were you involved in before real estate?
Why did you decide to give real estate a shot?
You joined Own NY Real Estate from a bigger brokerage, why a boutique brokerage?
Just under 30 deals sold and pending last year (almost a 900% increase!) how have you been able to achieve this?
Any advice for others that are getting started in the business?
-Patience, patience, patience. 80% of realtors starting out do not renew their license after the first term. That’s a scary number to look at, but think of it as a rite of passage.
– I recommend joining a brokerage whose focus is to grow your business, like Own NY. Somewhere that really teaches you every aspect of the business! Own NY values and invests in their agents and that makes a huge difference!
-Find a broker, agent, or colleague who will put you in their back pocket and show you everything. I cannot understate how much it helped to have somebody to learn everything from in my first couple years. I was so much more confident to go out on my own because of that!
I’m always available if you want to know more about me or the real estate industry – or if you are looking to buy or sell!
