Alright – so today we’ve got the honor of introducing you to Laura Wolfe. We think you’ll enjoy our conversation, we’ve shared it below.
Laura, looking forward to hearing all of your stories today. Looking back, what’s an important lesson you learned at a prior job
Prior to being in Real Estate I was a flight attendant on a private jet. It’s a great way to see the world but also a trial by fire in customer service. I was the only flight attendant on planes that fit up to 12 passengers. My clientele was a lot of Rapper’s, DJ’s, bands and the worlds wealthiest. It made me good at reading my audience and providing what they needed during my time with them. It also made me a fast thinking and good communicator. This translates to my real estate business because I am still providing a customer service experience and guiding my clients through likely the biggest transaction of their lives.
Awesome – so before we get into the rest of our questions, can you briefly introduce yourself to our readers.
I got into this industry when I bought my first house and thought I could do an awesome job at being a realtor after experiencing it from the customers end. I was born and raised in San Diego and have lived all over the city so I am very familiar with many neighborhoods and all kinds of real estate. I live in Ramona now along with my two children and specialize in the unique Ramona market that includes horse properties, wineries and ranches. I am most proud of having built my business for myself and kids and to have a career I find rewarding and fulfilling.
Any stories or insights that might help us understand how you’ve built such a strong reputation?
My business is in a small town where reputation is everything. The best thing you can do is be known for being someone who does right by people. One thing I know for sure is that people always have and always will talk whether positive or negative. Do everything in your power to make sure that you’re know for being fair and doing right by your clients and colleagues.
Can you share a story from your journey that illustrates your resilience?
The real estate business is not what it looks like on TV shows. I would love for $20M deals to fall into my lap everyday and close them as easily as ringing a bell like on Selling Sunset but the reality is that there are highs and lows and many challenges. You really have to love it to persevere. Everyone that has been doing it long enough has had their fair share of rejections and disappointments. You have to be very self reliant, courageous and driven in this eat what you kill business.
