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.
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.
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.
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.
Success doesn’t happen overnight. It took me months to find my groove in the industry.
Patience. You might not see an immediate return. It takes time before people will trust your level of knowledge and experience.
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.
Listen to your agent. Their job is to study the market, know their facts and guide you towards making a wise investment.
