Help Johanna Get Started In Her Real Estate Career
Organized by: Johanna Anderson
Real estate rocks! That's the conclusion I reached after trying numerous other careers and realizing that they weren't for me. I became intrigued with real estate investing in December of 2014, and I spent 2015 taking classes to learn more about it. One important pearl of epiphany I acquired through these studies is that a real estate investor has to have money to invest, and I didn't have any. I had, however, actually fallen in love with real estate, so I decided to become a licensed real estate agent to earn my "bread and butter." In January of this year, I got my Maryland license and signed on as an agent with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Penfed Realty. I plan to leverage my writing talent as a vehicle to deliver valuable content to potential clients. My goal is to always give more value in any business transaction than I receive. This past week, I finished writing a brief, informative article on the subject of decluttering one's home after living in it for decades. My target market is Empty Nest homeowners here in Montgomery County, Maryland, and I think they will really enjoy my article. I have a pretty good idea of who those Empty Nesters are and where they live. My goal is to raise $250.00 to print 1000 copies of my article. I plan to do a door to door marketing campaign in my target neighborhoods, giving my article as a gift to homeowners. Incidentally, at Staples, 500 copies of the artice would cost $450.00, while 1000 only costs $250.00 Thus, it is logical for me to print 1000 and get twice the product for half the price. The cost of this printing is the primary aim of my fundraising campaign. Any money I raise beyond the initial $250.00 will be used to cover other marketing and administrative costs, like my quarterly agency fee and blog hosting. Friends, please get behind me in this colossal effort to get my boulder rolling down Make A Living Mountain! All of you are dear to my hearts, and I want to make you proud of me.
