Application Excerpt
AboutI was going through a mental struggle in my mid-20s that was affecting happiness and motivation. I knew I needed to snap out of it, so I took a leap of faith: I made what I thought at the time was a huge investment of $600 to take the real estate course. Three of my grandparents were real estate agents. I was never known to be a great salesperson or to have the personality of one. I was more reserved, not aggressive, and not the most confident person in the room—but I cared. After getting my license, I worked as an apprentice for my uncle, a general contractor, who owns his own business. I spent one to two days a week learning everything I could about framing, tiling, painting, and demoing. In the process, I learned a lot of technical information about homes and their structure, mechanical systems, plumbing, and more. Not only do I know how to build stairs now, but I also have greater knowledge of how to talk to clients about their homes and home inspections.
