Finding Your "Why?"
Before even thinking about real estate, I was a finance professional working a thankless job trying to find a better way to help my clients through their largest personal financial decisions.
The thing is, at the time I was finding a way to really make a difference in my clients' lives.
The big problem was that if I ever wanted to really make a difference and help them achieve their dreams, it meant that I would need to find a new profession. That meant that if I didn't make a decision, I would be stuck in a thankless job, which meant that I wouldn't be able to work with clients doing what I really love.
Then, out of nowhere, something amazing happened...
I started to go through the home buying process for myself and saw how backward the industry operated about helping people through the process of homeownership was what I really wanted to do.
Instantly it became crystal clear to me how to help make a difference in my clients' lives was to help them find their dream home because I saw my friends, family, and clients would be able to rely on someone they could trust and would be able to provide sound real estate and financial advice.
My plan was to start studying for the real estate exam so that I would be able to properly look out for my clients.
So I started Spent the next 6 months learning everything I could about the industry. But I didn’t stop there.
I then launched my real estate business and started meeting with as many people as I could that might be looking to buy or sell real estate in my neighborhood.
After that, I start marketing to people outside of my sphere and work with others who could use my help.
Building on that success, I decided to really start to build my business within Douglas Elliman.
And, with these resources, I can now work with buyers and sellers, nationwide to provide advice in any market and let them achieve their dreams of buying and selling real estate with someone they trust at their side.
It's been such an incredible journey so far and I'm just thankful that I get to share it!
