My journey into Real Estate

Well hello!  Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog… this is a first for me, so I am very glad to have you along for the ride.  My name is Jazzá (Jazz-Ayyyye!) and I am a native of Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada.  I am a REALTOR®, and each day I start fresh with how I am going to change the World.

That was inspiring, right?  Okay, good!  It is time to get real.

After many years in tech sales, meeting my amazing husband and starting a family, I felt empty.  I had what seemed like an amazing life on paper but something was missing.  It wasn’t until I had surgeries that took me out of work that I realized I was missing time.  Time with my children.  Husband.  Friends.  I was living in such a great city and yet I had no time to enjoy it.

And then I turned to HGTV…

I watched these well dressed, beautiful, women list million dollar properties in one 30 minute episode.  These fantastic women, would bring buyers to ‘happy tears’ 3 times before a commercial break.  I can wear heels.  I like shiplap and distressed wood.  Surely, I can do this.  So I enrolled in real estate school and passed with flying colors.  Stay with me,  it gets better.

I joined Coldwell Banker Premier Realty (shameless plug of the best company EVER) and I donned my heels on a mission make someone happy cry at their new travertine flooring and gourmet kitchen.  Little did I know, my life in real estate wouldn’t be lights, camera, action.  There was (is) something to learn (always), the days were (are) long (very), and million dollar listings weren’t falling into my lap.  It was (is) work!

I spent my first 10 months studying, reading contracts, holding open houses, meeting any and everyone, and talking with any person who would listen about my new business venture.  What d’ya know? It worked!  I have seen the recessed light in the 9′ vaulted ceilings!  I have found my calling!

My new career is nothing like TV, and that is what makes it so good for me.  Each day doesn’t end with a couple slicing tomatoes on their absolutely non-negotiable, Italian marble, kitchen island.  It is real. Emotional. Rushing. I am meeting the most amazing people and yes, I am changing lives.  Starting with mine.  I haven’t gained any more time, but I have a new appreciation for it.

You made it to the end, hooray!  So here is what you can expect from me in the future:

  • lots of education on the market
  • a joke here and there
  • preparing for the listing
  • the buying process
  • and much more…

The great news is that you don’t have to wait for the next post, if you want to know the value of your home or you are ready to buy go here and contact me today!
