Today we would like to introduce Harvey TheRealtor.
Harvey, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
After my son overcame many challenging health obstacles (Broxton, aka. The Broxstar was born 1lb 9oz and spent 99 days in the NICU), I decided I needed to do something more for my family. I had a bigger purpose in life and seeing him fight to live put so many things into a different perspective. At that time, I had been in the restaurant and bar business for 17 years. I have always had great interaction with people and enjoyed my work greatly. Being a great bartender (listener, observer, multitasker and understanding people) is what has lead to becoming a great Realtor. With great support and encouragement from my wife Kelly, I started studying. It was June 2014 when I got my real estate license and joined Keller Williams World Media Center in Burbank, CA. It didn’t take long as I got my very first listing within the first week of having my license and went on to quickly close ten more deals. The success is directly related to the engagement and relationships I have with my clients. I have continued to build my business each year and 2019 was my most accomplished. Being awarded #3 agent out the 250+ agents is a tremendous honor and achievement and would not have been possible without my amazing clients.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
For me, it has been a pretty smooth. I think anyone would be lying if they said things can’t be stressful at times, lol! I think anytime you have multiple variables that are out of your control with a lot of moving parts, things can be challenging. Every transaction is different and can present bumps, but not always. Most challenges presented have a solution and my job is to find, present or negotiate that solution for my clients.
Please tell us more about your work, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
Buy, Sell, Invest in Real Estate! My primary focus is helping my clients fulfill their real estate goals. I guide my clients through the entire buying or selling process, which includes all the resources needed. I have a tremendous list of vendors I work with for their specialized needs. That be new construction, first time home buyers, residential, multiunit or commercial purchases, as well as leases. Specializing in sales of condos, townhomes, single-family, and multimillion-dollar estates. I have the greatest clients and it’s my clients that have truly made me the Realtor I am today. The HTR swag has def been something that has taken me by surprise.
As a guy that enjoys working out, I decided years back to get a couple shirts I could cut up made with my logo for the gym. I gave a few out a couple people asked for them and it just kinda took off. I later added trucker hats. To date, I have given away over 1400 HTR t-shirts and nearing 600 HTR trucker hats. I have shipped to 27 different states and nine different countries. It’s pretty awesome that I have photos sent to me from all over the world. Every week I get requests in person and through social media. It’s great feeling when someone wants to wear your logo and represent you. I am forever grateful
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
My business is very organic and referral-based with, of course, some social media platforms (Facebook and Instagram). However, with what is currently going on with the Covid19 pandemic, I am not sure what that means in how things will change. I have been very blessed currently working with several clients through these times. So, for now, my plans are going to continue being of service to my clients and stay informed with current guidelines and regulations to fulfill my client’s real estate goals. I want to send good vibes and prayers to everyone. Stay safe, stay healthy. #livelikeabroxstar
