We had the privilege of talking with Eric Goldie on how he achieved his success in real estate. Here, he answers our questions and provides insights and advice for others who are starting out in this industry. 

Tell us how you got into real estate.

I moved to New York directly out of college to pursue a career in the media industry. After six years working for various media companies, I made the transition into real estate. 

What is your favorite part about your career in real estate?

The relationships I build throughout the home buying process is so rewarding. I would definitely say the clients I meet through this industry are my favorite part. New York is the most exciting place to work in real estate not only because of the incredible properties we get to see every day, but because of the amazing New Yorkers we get to call our clients. 

What is one myth about real estate you hear too often?

That anyone can “do real estate.” There is so much that goes on behind the scenes of a deal. We’re not just opening a door and showing off designer kitchens. There is significant negotiation skills involved in each deal. We also connect the dots between lenders, attorneys, contractors, and everyone in between. There is a true skill of being able to succeed and deliver results for your clients.

What did you wish you had known before you started?

Success doesn’t happen overnight. It took me months to find my groove in the industry. 

What do you think is the most important trait a real estate investor should have?

Patience. You might not see an immediate return. It takes time before people will trust your level of knowledge and experience.

What do you think the real estate industry will look like in five years?

I think the industry is narrowing down. Large brokerages are acquiring smaller firms as a result and we’re seeing fewer small real estate firms. 

What advice would you give to new real estate investors?

Listen to your agent. Their job is to study the market, know their facts and guide you towards making a wise investment.
