Surrounding yourself with positive people plays a big role in growing your business. Brittany Brooks, entrepreneur, investor, real estate advisor, and coach, tells her story from the W2 rat race to a successful Owner/Broker at Momentum Realty. She shares how she joined her husband in real estate sales as the Lead Buyer's Agent on The Brooks Group with the mission of helping their community build wealth through real estate, and how that has changed her life. She believes that if an agent is not getting value from where they are, they will look for an opportunity elsewhere. This conversation will give you a new perspective on what it takes to be a successful solo agent - it's not just about making money, it's about finding the right deals and building relationships with clients that will last long-term.
