AboutIf I were to change something about the real estate industry, I would choose to add more collaboration without competition. It is a common misconception that other brokers are your competition and therefore, in a sense, enemies. However, throughout my career, I have found that it’s through other real estate professionals that you can learn new information and strategies and grow your business. There can be a lot of ego in the industry, but through inclusivity, I think many new real estate pros would feel a deeper sense of community and be more successful. Personally, two very influential brokers have heavily impacted my first two years in real estate: Kassidy Benson was my first broker and really took me under her wing during my first year in the industry. My second mentor is Madison Kissel, who has taught me the importance of philanthropy in business.
