Real Estate agents often jump from office to office. They’re looking for a place that will offer them better leads, more listings, precise locally focused technology, and the training they need to succeed. Equally important is growth potential – you don’t want to feel stuck after years with the same company.
It’s rare to find a real estate agent or broker that has been with the same team for 10 years, let alone 20. However, that’s exactly why we think it’s so important to hear from Josue Vargas – the Broker and Partner of Douglas Paul Real Estate in Cambridge. Josue has been a critical part of the Boston Pads team for nearly 20 years! He was one of the first professionals hired by CEO, Demetrios Salpoglou, and has thrived as an agent, trainer, property manager, owner, and mentor. The agents he hires often close $10K to $20K of transactions in their first month. Investors value his intense work ethic and relentless pursuit of real estate knowledge.
Now, a brief interview with Josue.
How long have you been working with Douglas Paul / Boston Pads?
What made you choose to partner with Boston Pads from the very beginning of your career?
How do you build relationships with clients and what would you like them to know about you?
What do you find the most rewarding part about managing and teaching agents to be?
All of your agents have great things to say about you. What do you look for when hiring a new agent?
Lastly, what advice do you have for new agents?
My best advice for a new agent getting into real estate is know – it’s not easy. It’s worth it, but it’s not easy. It’s simple, but it’s not easy. It’s clear, but it’s not easy. Nothing in life ever is – so keep pushing.
Also getting in one hour earlier and staying one hour later than you think you need to. Sometimes just hanging around the office early you get the most amazing inbound calls, and off to the races you go. Our phones ring a lot, and often times just being in the right place at the right time provides big rewards.
