On getting into real estate
I chose real estate.
The happiest moment in my career
Securing my first-ever listing four days into my first job in real estate.
The most memorable moment
It was a gorgeous three-bedroom unit that I sold twice in the space of three months and still managed to get a higher price second time around.
Best advice she’s received
Just be yourself! Own who you are and simply do you. The right people will flow your way.
The rise of DIY models for sellers as well as the changing landscape in the digital space. The solution is for agents to cultivate deeper and more meaningful relationships with their database, even after the sale. This means that these clients will still enlist you to sell their homes (in combination) with all the new elements in technology. Being more high-touch and still high-tech.
Change for good?
I would love to see more rookie mentoring and nurturing. Also, just respect amongst industry peers – more collaboration over competition. Agents need to remember that it’s never about us – it’s about the clients and the communities that we serve and represent.
‘Elite’ agent means
An agent who represents more than just their number of listings sold and listed. Someone who is able to address the clients’ pain points during a time that’s very stressful to them. An agent who can also be a mentor and role model to their peers.
