Full Transcription Below:
All right, guys.
So today we are chatting with Rainy.
Currently you live in Florida, and you just started on this
journey of becoming a real estate agent.
How are you doing, Rainy?
I am doing good.
Thank you for asking.
Yes, of course.
Yours just so awesome.
Rainy, I love talking with you.
I’m looking forward to this chat, and you guys should be
too. I will throw your information up top people can contact
you and stuff.
But how did the this journey start for becoming a real estate?
Like wanting to become a real estate agent and then to become
a real estate agent?
Okay, so my journey kind of pretty much started since I was
younger. My dad is pretty much like in the real estate industry.
He has his own construction business, and he actually built
our home from the ground up.
And I just remember him having to talk with the project manager
aka my mom and making sure everything is going in, talking
with the subcontractors and having to go through the things
of the interior, design, the permits, and all of that good
stuff. So it pretty much started at a younger age.
However, I decided to go the health care route with my mom
and ended up becoming an occupational therapist.
And then later as a nursing home administrator.
And then now as a realtor and with that how that started
that my initial goal was my husband and I talked about doing
investment properties, and my thing was like, Okay, why not
just take the real estate class, become familiar with the
terminology. And then that way, when we decide to get investment
property will have a better under understanding of the process
and just the information that needed.
Well, that started in February of 2,019 for my real estate
exam, and because I was a nursing home administrator overseen,
like 120 residents, 130 plus employees that did not finish.
I didn’t finish my course until, like nine months later because
I’ve been on call 24 7 right.
You had to be regular available, so it took me a minute to
get it done and finally completed it in November 2,019 and
actually took my exam July of 2,020 and a lot of time in
between. But I had a nice little plan together.
What I did to help me pass on the first examine.
Here I am today.
I love that.
Yeah, that’s like going from a job with a lot of responsibility
and being a real estate agent is a lot of responsibility
But it’s kind of similar, actually.
Where your cost on call?
I do have my reception is answer the call or Hey asked my
social service director.
Hey, can you reach out to such and such?
I’m all in more.
How was that leaving from a full time position?
What was that?
I guess, like, in terms of was it scary or was it something
you what were you going through when you were deciding in
that journey to leave up position?
So the reason I actually left is I’m not quite sure if you
remember when the Coronavirus first came out, there was a
town called by the name of Albany and not the big Albany
in New York.
But in Albany, Georgia, they were all over to CNN about how
it started from a funeral and things like that.
Well, long story short, that’s my hometown.
And because of the fact I still have family there, everyone
I knew that I would have to kind of travel back and forth
to see family members and things like that.
So to not put my staff on my residents at risk, I decided
to put my family first and decided to give my notice and
leave from the nursing home field at that time.
And at that time, real estate really wasn’t even on my mind.
I just want to make sure that my family and everyone was
okay. But after I gave my notice, which was one of the hardest
things, I still love you guys.
I just decided to go ahead and fulfill my real estate career.
And I have to tell you, I’ve been getting a lot of family
members and our friends like, well, why did you decide to
leave a good paying job and to go into something to one now
you went from two every other week paycheck to strictly Commission.
And my most in life is I never want to leave this world saying
I could would have should have.
I’m one of those.
If it comes to my mind, I’m going to do it if it doesn’t
work. Hey, I still have the option to go back, so I don’t
want to have any regrets.
Because it’s been something on your heart.
Remember, we were talking like, you’ve always wanted to do
And you’re going to excel in real estate.
So I’m not even worried about you.
Yeah, you’re good.
It’s such a cool personality.
What made you decide to go with Ext?
I like a couple of things about eat now, and I have to be
honest, I did not even interview with any other brokers.
I know they always say interview a couple of them, but I
like what EXP stood for.
I found a couple of the EP agents shout out to Chase and
shout out to Amina.
It’s actually my mentor here in Tampa, and I like the fact
of being able to be a part of their partnership, so being
able to learn from them.
I do like the spot options with EXP.
I like the brokerage being a cloud of days, and I like the
fact that they’re just constantly expanding and they’re always
looking out for the agent from what I can see.
So that’s kind of in a nutshell.
Why I decided to go with the Yeah, no, definitely.
They’re definitely an agent first kind of a broker from what
I’ve been observing and getting the tour and stuff next world
and running around and kicking the soccer all and all that
But I did the speedboat the week.
Oh, my God.
This is kind of relaxing.
No, it’s such a cool.
I love their model.
The company culture is really quite amazing.
Yeah, I really I can honestly say that it is for it.
So I guess what are some things you just start as an agent?
Like, what are some things you’ve been, I guess, doing as
starting as an agent and stuff that other people can who
are aspiring, maybe to make the switch, like what’s that
journey looks like as you’re starting.
So my journey is and I will say that I think it’s been a
little challenging for me.
I’ll say that because, of course, coming from the health
care field, you have to know pretty much everything or have
a very good Foundation before you’re in whatever leadership
position, because there are a lot of regulations, a lot of
policies and procedures that are related to it.
So at first it was a little challenging to me, and I’m very
thankful for Chunky because when we had our thoughts, she
mentioned exactly that.
She told me that it was going to be both my weakness as well
as my strength because I want to know everything.
So my first few weeks, a few months have been focused on
developing partnership with vendors such as the mortgage
lenders. That’s definitely one thing you want to do, because
when you get it fine, they’re going to need to get pre approval.
So definitely developing those relationships.
I reach out to other agents just to kind of pick their brain
on various things.
Also just continue to learn.
I’m always on the ext training, and what I love about our
group is that every agent that’s in there, they have a different
specialty and they’ll do a training and the heartbeat.
And so we’re able to learn someone that does a lot of the
rentals that we have, someone that does the Facebook training.
We have someone that does the website kind of everything
I am trying to make sure that I’m getting my hands in it
and try to have a good Foundation with systems, but as well,
too, I am trying to take that leap in doing co calling, which
is very different.
Yes, dose for when the business actually start running so
that it can have be like a well old machine.
God, that’s so cool.
I love it.
What are some things you’re looking forward to in this?
I am looking forward to just really empowering and educating
as many people as I can.
There have been some days where I’m like, Oh, man, did I
make the right decision?
And then I’ve been getting a text message from people.
I’ve been working in my top line.
So much just for providing me with the information.
For instance, I have a Lady she’s in her 50?
And she said that now it’s the time for her to buy her home
and that she’s just so grateful that I’m just taking the
time out to talk with her.
It’s just those things like that that I’m looking forward
to and definitely being able to be the cheerleader along
the way and to hopefully be able to be a part of her first
house warming and just to be able to celebrate with her.
That’s my main thing.
It’s just to being able to help and empower people, whether
they decide to use me as an agent or not.
I want to be able to give you the information so you will
be readily available.
That’s so cool.
So good, man.
So you’re currently in the house area.
You said you’re originally from Georgia.
Yes, I am.
Why the move back down to Tampa?
So I actually moved to Tampa.
My dog is moving this thing.
I actually moved to Tampa in 2,010.
And when I moved, I wasn’t even supposed to stay in Tampa.
I was only here for, like, 13 weeks traveling assignment.
I was an occupational therapist at the time, and my recruiter
and I had already decided that I was going to be going to
Well, I got here and fell in love with Tampa and did not
get to make it over to Texas.
And just the culture, the things to do here.
I like the location that’s not too central that I’m close
enough to the water so it can get hot.
Yes, but it’s not too overbearing because we’re closer to
the water, but I can go to Orlando.
I can go down to Miami.
I can go over to the beaches in a little time.
Well, too, it’s only like a four hour, 4 and a half hour
drive to my hometown is the location and just the things
And the people I have fell in love with that okay.
We’ll have to do a video on the top things to do with tape.
Oh, Yes, I have to say, too.
So while I’ve been here 6.10.
We did also move to Connecticut, and it was very cold.
Shout out to all of you that have to deal with the snow.
Oh, my gosh.
And they said it was a mile winter, so I know I needed to
come back to the South.
And we also lived in Charleston is Charleston, South Carolina.
We actually lived on Daniel Davis Island, and Daniel is.
So I ended up coming back here because Tampa is my home so
David Spot, Tampa.
I’m glad you’re doing real estate in Tampa because I feel
like when you’re are more connected with your location, you’re
able to just serve a community better.
