My First Year in CRE
NAI SunVista News
When people tell you your first year is like drinking from a water hose they are not lying! Everyday, every person, every transaction is filled with successes, failures, challenges and learning experiences. It can be an emotional roller coaster where you either want to jump off or hold on tight and ride it out. I’m grateful to have surrounded myself with a supportive brokerage, leadership and mentor. I could not have accomplished what I did my first year if it wasn’t for the weekly and monthly support and education that NAI SunVista provided me. I owe the biggest thanks to my mentor and partner who daily lifted me up, gave constructive and positive feedback, challenged me to take on tasks only she knew I could do. She was never afraid to course correct me or even let me try something that was completely outside the box. If I failed she helped me pick up the pieces and learn from them and if I succeeded, she always made sure to celebrate with me. A selfless leader motivated to see me succeed.
After a year of learning and failing, I have some big goals for me in 2022. Several include furthering my education as I’m a strong believer that knowledge comes from learning and wisdom comes from experience. I also want to move my business forward by increasing by business relationships in the community while partnering with my clients to achieve their commercial needs. I believe social media and digital marketing is the way of the world; however, I’d like to challenge myself and others in 2022 to get back to the basics of good old fashion lunch meetings, coffee dates and hand shaking with clients. However, don’t be surprised if you see me grow my business on social media platforms as well. As time is everyone’s nemesis, social media and digital marketing allows you to send a message, a reminder or start a connection during people’s busy lifestyles.
I love the New Year because it means new beginnings, new challenges and opportunities. A blank canvas to create whatever you want. I look forward to my second year in CRE and I can't wait to share my experience with you.
