Riverwalk Lapse.mp4

Before getting started in real estate I loved my job and the work that I did. I simply couldn't get over the fact that the level of work I was doing didn't match up with the pay I was receiving. It ended up being another year of working 12-14 hour days, and weekends, to break even financially. At the same time, the company I was working for had an incoming CEO who was known for cutting costs and bonuses. The writing was on the wall and I took the plunge. Switching locations from Washington, DC to Jacksonville, FL didn't make a difference. I needed to switch careers. I needed to have control over my future.Getting started in real estate is a first class education in entrepreneurship AND budgeting. Over two years of working professionally,...

As Senior year at Tech arrived, I was immersed in the job search. I had done well at school, ending up near the top of my class in finance, and applied for many of the typical finance positions. But I also was looking to do something a little different from the typical Wall Street path taken by most new finance graduates.

Life was great at Virginia Tech, where I met my amazing girlfriend, Brittany (now my fiancée), and was at the top of my class for finance.

But the best job I ever had was working during my junior and part of my senior year as a Domino's pizza delivery driver. Unlike Brittany, who worked in the dining hall on a set schedule making barely more than minimum wage, I chose to take a job where I could create my own schedule and have no limits on my hourly income since most of my pay came from tips.

"Love Me or Hate Me, At Least You Know Me." - Grant Cardone


I've decided to start a blog about my life and experience as a real estate agent here in Jacksonville, FL. I want to share my journey because I believe it could help others in the real estate business or those thinking about becoming a real estate agent. It is also a way to reflect upon the past so I can collect and see patterns in my life, that may continue into the future. Further, it's a personal goal of mine to write and publish a book later in my life.

I do want to let you know up front that I do not intend to offend anyone in these blog posts.It's true that many of my personal thoughts about the real estate industry are not mainstream, and I'm glad they're not, because no ...
