Mimose Valme has been recognized for the month of June for her sales success and high productivity. We recently sat down with her to find out how she got her start and how she has achieved so much success in this market. Here’s what she had to say…
Real Estate can be a difficult career…what ultimately helped you decide to choose it as your career?
I chose real estate as my career because I have small children that require my full attention. Working an 8-hour shift does not give me enough time in the day to care for myself and my children. I looked at different careers – I love to talk to people I thought Real Estate would fit me perfectly. Being a Real Estate agent gives me the opportunity to meet and talk to all types of people.
Whether you are new to the business or a seasoned agent…tell us when you became licensed and how you did it?
I consider myself new to this industry. To get my business off the ground the first thing I did was to let EVERYONE know that I am now a professional real estate agent. I also let them know that I am here to help them with the purchase or sale of their home. I love working with people and feel like I learn something new from the attorneys, loan officers, and my clients almost every day.
Real Estate is local…what local community do you have the most success in?
Because I reside in the Brockton area that is where most of my business comes from – and where I have been most successful. I have lived in Brockton for many years and know the area very well. I can close my eyes and tell my clients everything about the city from a quiet area to loud area, about the school system – basically anything they would want to know about the area.
Some Agents love working with buyers…others with sellers. Tell us a little bit about who you love to work with.
I love working with both buyers and sellers. Both have pros and cons – sweet and sour. At the end of the day it’s all comes down to helping someone to complete a chapter of their life and open another one.
There are many areas of Real Estate that a professional can focus on…residential, rentals, commercial. What is your focus? Why did you choose that type of Real Estate?
For now I am focusing on Residential Real Estate and Rentals because I am still new in this industry. I have a lot to learn before I another area of focus.
We all know how important technology is in our day to day lives. How has technology impacted your Real Estate career? Do you use technology in a unique way?
Yes , I use technology for my business! Today just about everyone lives on social media . I use it to share my some of my showings and empty houses and do live videos to explain to others how they can stay connected with everything real estate related.
Do you use technology to get specific jobs done in your day to day business?
I use Dotloop and RPR to get and to share information with my clients. I also use social media to share my marketing and to build a relationship with people that I don’t know .
Almost EVERYONE uses social media in both their personal and their professional lives. Do you use both?
Yes, I do! I love Facebook because it’s simple, easy to navigate, easy to share information, and to stay connected with my past clients.
How important is lead generation to your current business?
VERY! I would say I spend probably 10 hours a week lead generating.
Where would you say MOST of your leads come from?
Most of my leads come from friends and family.
Staying up to date in this industry is a constant challenge. How much time do you spend on educating yourself? What do you do to stay up to date in this industry?
I spend about 10 hours a week on watching videos and reading up about the industry and current market.
We are curious…how did you first hear about SUCCESS! Real Estate?
I Googled every real state firm in my area. Once I read about them I chose SUCCESS! because the name meant something special.
What ultimately made you decide to choose our company?
The level of training and support that I receive here.
Is there anything in particular that SUCCESS! offers that really works for you and your career?
To be honest with you – yes. The ability to work from anywhere and great commission plans and multiple offices space.
What would you say sets SUCCESS! Real Estate apart from other Real Estate Agencies?
The support team and the commission plans.
We love working here…do you now anyone else that would love it too? Would you recommend SUCCESS! Real Estate to another agent or co-broke?
Yes , I will recommend SUCCESS! all day and night!
Real Estate can be a 25/7 job. Many of our agents juggle full-time family and personal lives in addition to running their own real estate business. How do you manage to keep it all together?
I did one step and time. Family is important and so is my business.
We would love to know a little bit about you…
I grew up in Haiti and moved here when I was 18 years old to come look for the American dream. Everybody was talking about but little did I know when I first came here I found the American nightmare. Until I became a Real Estate agent .
What is your favorite thing to do when you are not selling Real Estate in your down time?
When I am not with clients I love to read a good book (Bible) and I enjoy my time with my twin over some grill chicken and red wine. Life is very short I try to enjoy every second and cherish my children while they young.
Is there anything else that you would like to share with us?
I have to say thank you to everyone including our staff and for providing great customer support to our teams.
