Golden Properties Rising Star | Sally Abdelshahed
In a very short amount of time in the business, our #GoldenProperties #Golden Agent Sally Abdelshahed has proven to be a force to be reckoned with. We sat with Sally, to speak about her career in real estate, the challenges she’s crushed, and her love for helping her clients achieve the dream of home ownership.
Why did you decide to work in real estate?
I LOVE business and real estate is one of the biggest businesses in California. I love that I get to work one on one with people and help them relocate or achieve the dream of owning a home.
Have you created a daily routine for yourself?
Yes, I started my daily routine by coming to the office, early in the morning, every day. I start with follow ups, e-mails, calls and then I search properties and familiarize myself with all market updates. I do my best to attend all training and meetings within the Golden Office. I am constantly working throughout the day by answering all phone calls and responding to text messages.
What would you say has been the most challenging part of starting out in real estate?
The most challenging part being a NEW agent, is just that, the term new. People are always looking for agents with experience, but what they don’t realize is that I have a team backing me up every step of the way with many decades of experience.
What has it been like to represent clients. Have you worked with sellers or buyers or both?
In my first sale, I represented the buyer it was so scary at first, and a big responsibility. I put my heart into it and the goal is to make sure that your client gets the BEST house is a scary! That fear is good, it makes you go above and beyond. It wasn’t easy, I did it and I closed escrow in 21 days. I have worked with both sellers and buyers.
How do you market your listings?
I just got my first listing. I’m planning to market it as much as possible by posting it on my social media, business pages, Facebook groups. I will boost ads and make sure the highest number of eyes see it. I’ll be hosting open houses and promoting them.
What has been your favorite part of the Golden Office and working in real estate?
The best part at our BHHS Golden Properties Golden Office, has been the manager Aida Dimejian, and the team. Aida is really very helpful and her mentoring classes are gold. The office team is amazing, knowledgeable, supportive and you just find what you need.
