Check Out Brittney Lewis Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittney Lewis.

Hi Brittney, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I started in property management shortly after graduating College from Coppin State University with my Business degree. Not too long after being in the field, I realized that this was something that I was good at, humbly speaking.

But not only was I good at what I did, but I also loved it! The opportunity to help people find a home for their families became a passion of mine.

After 10 years of property management, I decided to move on to something with a bigger responsibility and that’s when I got my real estate license in the city I knew best, Washington, DC.

Six months later, I got my license in Maryland and 2 years later I quit my Property Management job and became a full-time agent in DC and MD.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Working as a real estate agent can be fulfilling and financially rewarding, but it’s not easy.

A career in real estate requires drumming up business, promoting yourself, tracking leads, handling complex paperwork, providing customer service, and so much more. The biggest struggle is there is no safety net during the slow periods.

Because I’m not earning a salary from an employer, my earnings are based on my transactions each month. If I have a slow month, my takeaway is less. If I don’t have any transactions in a month, I make zero dollars for the month.

The job is based on commission, so if I’m not selling a property, I don’t get paid.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am a licensed Realtor in Maryland and Washington, DC. I am responsible for using my knowledge of the local real estate market to help individuals buy, sell or rent residential and commercial properties.

I am known for, and what also sets me apart understanding the importance of marketing, having strong negotiating skills, and providing knowledge, and experience when working with my clients.

I am most proud of delivering successful results in all of my transactions! What sets me apart from other realtors is my attitude and communication.

What would you say has been one of the most important lessons you’ve learned?
Is to treat every client like they’re my only client.

I’ve learned to really take the time and sit down, get as much face time with them as I can, and build that relationship because those clients that I’ve worked with in my early years are going to often become some of my best referral partners for my entire career, they’re also going to become my future sellers.
