Today we’d like to introduce you to Cydney Actie.
Hi Cydney, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
I always knew I wanted to get into real estate, but life had other plans. I followed society’s “American Dream” pathway: go to college and get a job. I attended The Pennsylvania State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication.
Within 7 months of my graduation, I was pregnant with my beautiful daughter Bailey. I had to provide for her, so I had to put some of my other dreams on hold. I continued to earn a Master’s degree in Forensic Studies at Stevenson University. I then entered the government contracting realm.
My father became a real estate appraiser some time ago and I was hooked. COVID-19 actually gave me an opportunity to finally take a plunge and get my license. My goal going into this industry was education first. I believe more people need to be educated on the home buying process, especially people of color.
Homeownership is so important and I am here to help everyone make their dream of homeownership a reality.
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?
Taking a leap of faith and starting to pursue a new career is scary.
Being a single mom and attempting to study for the real estate exam was challenging. The challenges don’t stop once you become an agent. A newer agent has to prove themselves with each appointment and with each client
I want to provide the best service possible for my clients, so I push myself past any obstacles that come my way.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am a Reator® and I am most proud of the service I provide to my clients.
I want the best for all involved, so I will advocate for their best interests. What sets me apart from other realtors is that I have a myriad of experiences in other fields of work.
Whether it is my communications background, my forensics problem-solving, or that I am an all-around people person. My tactic is to always be able to connect to all people from different walks of life.
How do you define success?
Success is being able to provide for my daughter. She is the driving force for everything I do. In addition, meeting and exceeding my clients’ goals is also how I define my success.
