Day to Day

As a Broker and the Owner of a Real Estate Firm, my typical day is concentrated on two primary goals. First is mentoring and supporting my Agents in their day-to-day goals, problems, and situations they face. Second, is constantly staying focused on marketing our company. Those are the two primary "jobs" I concentrate on day to day as an owner. Obviously, there are many other administrative tasks that have to be done, but they are just necessary parts of ownership.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Listening and learning from others that are successful in the industry and then sharing what you learn. As a Broker/Owner, much of what I do is "train the trainer". I spend a lot of time learning and then pass that along to my employees. You have to be a networker also. It's much easier said than done. You have to be out in the community constantly selling yourself and your company.

The Noise I Shed

From Society in General:

"The industry is too competitive. Starting your own company is too risky and costs too much money. Only a few make a lot of money in this industry. "
