Today we’d like to introduce you to Therese Willis.
Hi Therese, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
My background is in the entertainment field. I was a successful Celebrity Make up Artist for several years. I like to think I’m a very creative person with a heavy emphasis on aesthetics. Real Estate was the perfect transition, it has always been an interest of mine. I knew I would explore it one day, and I’m so grateful that I did! I love helping my clients find their dream home or helping my clients find their “right now” home. Being in Los Angeles, and with how tricky this LA market can be, you have to be open to all possibilities that a home in your price range can offer. I enjoy helping my clients transform a home to get everything they need from it. I have a strong passion for helping people become homeowners and securing their future by owning land in Los Angeles.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
I’ve always been self-employed which has had many challenges. My main goal has always been to give my clients time to get to know me. That is of the utmost importance, trusting me with such a huge purchase or sale. You also have to be very savvy to navigate this LA market. I work hard for my clients by making sure they have the best advantage possible in buying or selling their homes.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
Whether my clients are buying or selling a home, I tell them it is my honor to hold their hand through the process. I enjoy making sure they understand and feel very comfortable with every decision they make.
Do you have any advice for those just starting out?
I love getting new agents excited about embarking on the journey of Real Estate. My advice to them would be, you have to be very disciplined, stick to a daily schedule and go out and meet people. Hone in on one area of the city, farm that area and share all the great new business such as restaurants and events that happen in that part of town so you will be able to familiarize your potential clients with all that the area has to offer.
