From front reception to top-producing real estate agent, Faeine Grant of Abbotsford, B.C., has invested the 10,000 hours it takes to truly master a profession, says eXp Realty. Grant, a 15 year real estate veteran, recently joined the cloud-based brokerage.
She started her career as an unlicensed assistant in Terrace, B.C. working with Re/Max while still a business student.
“I was fully immersed in the business side of things early on,” she says. “The paperwork, the contracts… all the stuff they don’t teach you in real estate school. As I became an expert on the business side, my goal remained the same: learn everything and then transition into a full-fledged real estate agent.”
Grant says all the hardships have been worth it when it comes to building up her knowledge of the industry. “With eXp Realty, I can actually listen to office meetings – be present in office meetings – no matter where I am or where I go, thanks to the cloud. Unlike previous brokerages, I can keep up with what I’m doing in both my personal life and my business life while staying informed on industry updates and mentorship opportunities,” she says.
“There’ve been recommendations on a few workshops that I wouldn’t have normally learned about, and I’ve actually been making a point to participate in these new events and opportunities. I went to one in-person in Surrey a few weeks ago, which was all about mindset and perspective from a doctor from India who is touring and doing seminars, and I just found that to be so incredible. eXp Realty has also helped me revamp the admin side of my business by helping me hire new consultants, assistants and even a marketing company through recommendations from other realtors. It’s been a neat journey so far.”
