I love being a realtor because it’s always changing. You can have deals fall through in the morning and have them back on track by mid-afternoon. You just never know what’s going to happen. I grew up watching my dad perfect the tools to be a great broker which is another reason why I love it so much. I get to go to work everyday and learn from the best. Real estate tips?
Hmmm….. any real estate tips. Commercial real estate is a little different because most buyers who are coming into the market are already extremely knowledgeable about what they are looking for. If I were to suggest any tips to someone not familiar with commercial real estate it would be to surround yourself with a good team. In order for you to get a transaction done you are going to need a good engineer, architect, banker, attorney, etc., don’t lean solely on your agent for all of your needs. Favorite neighborhood in Savannah?
I grew up in the Landings and lived there until I went to college, so obviously I think that’s the best neighborhood in Savannah. Now that I’m older, I appreciate downtown Savannah more. I moved into Ardsley Park in January and don’t see myself leaving the area for awhile. I can’t live without…
I can’t live without my iPhone. I am obnoxiously on it all of the time. I would say that it’s hands down the worst invention of all time. On a serious note, I can’t live without friends and family. I am fortunate to have a lot of great friends and great family to support me no matter what. What makes me happy about Savannah..
There are so many things to do in Savannah. I love going out on the weekends with friends, playing golf, kayaking, going to the beach, and most importantly karaoking with my band The Sean Tyler Connection. We are kind of a big deal. The most underrated thing about Savannah is Forsyth Park. There are not many cities that have a huge park in the middle of the city with great concerts and events. Favorite tools of the trade?
The most important tool, in my opinion, as a commercial real estate agent is having the knowledge and depth of the developments happening in our market. Since our market is changing so much, having a foundation for what is happening and what is current is absolutely critical. My dad and I make it a priority to review the latest trends in the market weekly so we have a grasp on how it could affect our clients. Savannah is an amazing city because….
I believe that the Savannah College of Art and Design is the reason why Savannah is such a great city. They have singlehandedly transformed downtown Savannah and are the reason why real estate is trending upward. Everything that SCAD has done has/will have an impact on the real estate market in Savannah.
