Starting a career in real estate is easy right? Not so much! Actually 9 out of 10 new agents fail and the one that succeeds usually takes a few years to really make strides. This wasn’t the case for Malissa Roedel – she closed 13 transactions in her first 6 months in the business! It wasn’t easy but she sure makes it look that way. Let’s find out more about her and how she did it.
What industry were you involved in before real estate?
Before starting in Real Estate, I was in Property Management, maintaining a portfolio of over 200 apartments. This experience gave me a great foundation to transition into Real Estate.
Why did you decide to give real estate a shot?
I loved working with people to find apartments and wanted to grow on that even more!
You joined Own NY Real Estate to start, why a boutique brokerage?
I had heard great things about the brokerage, and when I met Aimee and the team, the family atmosphere won me over! The onboarding and training were hands on and thorough – even through the uncertainty of Covid-19! Own NY is really a great brokerage to jump start your career!
11 deals in 6 months – how have you been able to achieve this?
Own NY has been Key in helping me exceed my goals! The quality leads provided and the systems in place have helped me close my transactions! I also have a strong work ethic and try to always go the extra mile for my clients.
What do you see for your career path going forward?
I am looking forward to growing my business from referrals! Continuing to provide excellent customer service is a key focus of mine to help expand my sphere of customers!
Any advice for others looking to get started in the business?
Jump in! This year has been quite the experience, but I have loved every minute! If anyone is interested in hearing more, I’d be happy to speak with them – I can be reached at (716) 946-2301 or [email protected]
