Manage episode 294521637 series 1883803
Maria and Julio were managing car lots and making decent money, however, they felt tied to their location and the amount of work put into the business was not worth the reward. Julio decided that now was the best time to fulfill a passion of his and get into Real Estate. They became hooked immediately as soon as they sold their first house. After selling the car lots and fully committing to their new business, they managed to earn over 6 figures in less than a year!
Maria and Julio join me to share how they transitioned from managing used car lots to managing properties and selling houses. They share the dissatisfaction they found from both corporate jobs and having the work long hours at the car lots. They share what it's like working as a couple and how they can delegate work by their skillsets and strengths. They also share some of the mistakes they made in their first closing and what they learned from it.
“You got to take some risks. You got to put yourself out there. You got to learn to be uncomfortable and be okay with being uncomfortable constantly. “- Maria Valverde
“If I could give any advice to someone starting out it would be: reach out. Don't be greedy. Don't say 'hey like if I partner with somebody, I'm gonna have to pay somebody 50% of the deal. That's the wrong mindset."- Julio Solis
