Where did you get the idea about Hager Pacific Properties?
I came here to advance my education where I went to USC and was awarded an MBA in entrepreneurship. While still in school, many people would come looking for people to employ. I noticed they didn’t appreciate my expertise, knowledge, etc. what they were offering me was way belong what was being made by the undergrads’ made a choice of venturing out on my own and started out as a commercial broker in Real Estate. After working as an agent for three years, I began investing in real estate.
Give us a view of your day and how you ensure it is productive
As soon as you start a business, you can’t tell how your day would be. Things just happen as you get more property and accomplish lots of activities. As years went by, I noticed that by involving myself in philanthropic works made my daily job more satisfying.
How do you turn ideas into reality?
I work hard on them they become tangible. If you can’t get someone to do it for you, then do it yourself. I work on my stuff. I do lots of follow-ups daily and ensure nothing falls below per.
What’s one routine that excites you?
There are a lot of mis haps in real estate. An example, being that the supply is never consistent with demand as it is always lagging behind, or even the fluctuations in prices. Because of all these, getting results in real estate tend to take time.
Please explain to us one of the strategies that have helped you grow?
I never set specific goals as they tend to limit me. I encourage myself always to do the best I can. I am self-motivated, and I work I as hard as I can. Never pay attention to criticism, don’t allow people to tell you that you are being taken advantage of. It takes a few years to make money in real estate.
