Today we’d like to introduce you to Shanazar Beasley.
Hi Shanazar, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
Real Estate has always been something that interests me. When I was left a home by my late grandmother back in Upstate NY and lost it because I was young and not educated on how things worked I took a step back. I moved to Maryland in 2010 and purchased my first home two years later with an agent who was also a friend of mind. He became my broker three years later after numerous conversations and him telling me for years that I would do great things in this industry.
My personality, my go-getter attitude, the drive to succeed would take me far, but sure enough, self-doubt got in the way. I eventually gave in and became a dual-career agent for a while because being a full-time agent and taking care of things in my personal life I had to do both. Not to mention I loved what I did and I was comfortable. Once I decided to become a full-time agent and the birth of my daughter I had to get out of my comfort zone and hit the ground running. How I got to where I am today is because I never did or do anything for recognition.
I do it to survive and live the life I want to. The success just came along with it. I just never quit and do what feels good to me. My mission as a Real Estate Professional is to provide great service, knowledge, and education to the clients I serve. It is not always fun believe me you have got to have tough skin in this game, and it can not be all about the money. Do right and the money will come. Continue to learn and the money will come, stay true to you, and the money will come.
I’m manifesting my dreams right now I’m learning to be present. I appreciate all the love and support from my fiancé, family, and friends. I also thank VoyageBaltimore Magazines for noticing me and my hard work. My favorite quote I live by is “the only time success comes before work is in the dictionary”.
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?
Nothing about real estate is smooth. Day-to-day struggles could be anywhere from lenders not communicating with the buyers. The buyers want to back out of the deal last minute, a seller wanting to sell their home for more than the home is worth.
Finding out the home can’t be sold because the seller doesn’t really own the home. The requested repairs were not completed before the buyer’s closing date. The buyer purchased a new car during the home buying process now they do not qualify to buy, and the list can go on and on.
Not to mention the struggle of being a solo agent trying to juggle all the day-to-day tasks of marketing, phone calls, lead generation, follow up, etc.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
It is necessary to offer a full-service business to my clients. I have a great group of lenders, credit repair, title, home inspectors, and other specialists to help with all your real estate needs. Knowing what the clients needs is a must and we pay close attention to that so we can get it right the first time. In this fast paced market you have no room for error, so having a strong team behind you makes all the difference.
I specialize in providing expert client representation. I embrace technology to provide maximum results to all my clients. My loyalty and professionalism speak for themselves among my fellow colleagues and clients alike. I am mainly a buyers agent I love interacting with people and walking them through to process, but have recently moved over to the selling side of things because you have to be diverse and have a good portfolio of work.
What sets me apart is that I am just so down to earth you will feel like you working with someone you have known for years and can trust.
What I would like people to know is that you can rely on Shanazar & Co. to help you realize the full potential of your real estate investment. I am not here to sell to you but to educate you because real estate is one of the biggest investments one could make.
We’d love to hear about how you think about risk-taking?
Risk-taking is a consciously or non-consciously controlled behavior with a perceived uncertainty about its outcome. I do this every day knowingly and unknowingly. I always ask myself should I do it or not do it call me crazy but yup, I talk to myself LOL. I am sure we all do it from time to time you need that pep talk before work, that Monday motivation.
Non the less taking a risk to achieve a goal requires courage to face the fear of uncertainty. No matter the outcome, either way, good or bad, we grow through the process and become more resilient and confident, and improve the chances of achieving the future goals on your goal-getter list.
I am not sure if I can call myself a full-blown risk taker but I do know one thing is that I don’t always win I just make sure I don’t lose.
