How I went from teaching snowboard lessons to becoming a top selling real estate agent my first year.
When I was in 6th grade my Grandfather loaned me $5.00. I bought 100 pixie sticks from the dollar store and sold them at school for 10 cents each. The business failed as I ultimately ate all of the profits.
When I was 12, I would take my Dad’s lawnmower and ride it up and down the street. I would knock on anyone’s door who had grass higher than 6 inches. There were two services on my menu, a good cut, or a quick cut. Pretty soon I had a regular schedule of mowing lawns, raking leaves and shoveling snow.
When I was 14, I was caught snowboarding without a lift ticket. The owner walked me over to a young couple at the base of the mountain and introduced me to them as their new private snowboard instructor for the rest of the day. I would teach snowboard camp for the rest of the season.
At 16, I worked at Dunkin Donuts, what a sight it must have been, half my high school class was back there on a Saturday morning whipping up drinks, stacking egg sandwiches, and ringing the register. It was my first W2 employer, I still remember seeing those boxes attached to my first check.
After I graduated high-school I studied full time at Western Connecticut State University. I had various jobs through college, I put together a resume at my career center and soon received a part time job assembling tents for wedding venues. I also worked in at campus game room.
When I was a Junior in college, I was a Bank Teller at Webster Bank. After getting pressure from my managers to “sell” new accounts, I knocked on every door in my dormitory. I threw a big party and jokingly refused to let in any of my friends who banked with other institutions.
After college I went to work for one of the largest commercial real estate information providers in the world. I read the reviews for the job indicating working conditions were harsh, long hours, data entry, cold calling… I was sold, it was the exact type of environment I would learn to excel in.
After 5 years I set sail again for my next adventure, after a brief stint as an office leasing broker in NYC I joined forces with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. It is by far the most rewarding experience I have ever had. My first full year I helped 30 buyers find, negotiate, and close on their new homes.
And the journey still continues…
