Carmody: If you put your client’s needs first and approach the industry from a position of service, it’s a lot of fun.
What’s your top tip for freshly licensed brokers?
Be nice, honor people and build relationships. This is a people business and the more people that like you and trust you, the more successful you will be.

There are many ways to build a real estate career. Don’t be afraid to blaze a new trail and think outside the box while incorporating your passions.
