Q: Explain your journey in becoming a realtor?
A: My mother, Juanita Jimenez was a successful Realtor in Norfolk, Virginia. One day when I was 15 years old I vividly remember riding in the back seat with her to preview homes with a client. I always was fascinated on how every home had its own personality. My mother’s goal was always to match a person’s style with a unique home. Both of my parents had investment properties so I was exposed at an early age to the property management and real estate investment portfolios. In 2007 my mom urged me to get my real estate licensure. She said I had a gift for speaking to people and that people were naturally drawn towards me. I said, “really?” Haha. I took her suggestion. Since that point, my passion was found and I’ve never looked back.
Q: What sets you apart from other realtors?
A: I received a full scholarship to wrestle at Old Dominion University. I take the same determination and hard work ethic with real estate. I know that I want my clients to be winners and happy. There is no room for second place for me. I have always had that “go-getter” and the “pursuit of perfection” mentality. Negotiating in real estate is vital and I want to make sure I always push the limits to get my clients the best deal. I reside downtown so I live the lifestyle of what I sell and offer.
Q: What do you do when your not showing property or working?
A: My life is spontaneous. Usually, I’m at the Gym first thing in the morning or taking a run around Lake Eola Downtown. After that, Ill probably sip on some green tea and go with the flow. I enjoy just chilling at my high-rise pool and reading or grilling out. I love getting away to our beautiful beaches here in Florida. I prefer the gulf side like Naples or Siesta Key. South Beach if I need a long weekend! I like going to social and networking events to meet new people and clients, spending time with friends and family and eating in one of Orlando’s many restaurants. I do have my cell phone on during all of this so I’m not sure If I’m 100% not working… (he laughs as his cell phone vibrates)
