I’m Joe. I’m a 29 year old dude from Philly, working in real estate in NYC.
It was New Year’s Day 2009, I found myself sitting on my parents couch 6 months removed from college and unemployed. As I thumbed through the pages of US News & World Report I reflected upon what had gone wrong; I worked hard in high school, got into a good college, and had multiple relevant internships. Wasn’t this the path to success?
Maybe it was 10 years ago, but nowadays it’s almost impossible to have a linear career. The world is constantly changing, forcing us to adapt, stay flexible and be open to new opportunities.
As I perused the magazine with this in mind, I came across an article titled 50 Ways to Improve Your Life in 2009. One way to improve your life was ‘to start a blog’.
For the first few months I didn’t tell anyone I was blogging, I was doing it for myself. I was forcing myself to become part of the conversation. That posture alone changed everything.
I don’t consider myself a real estate guru. I’m simply a young guy passionate about the business with a desire to share my experiences and help all of you stay on the cutting edge.
Join me as I continue to explore the ever-evolving world of real estate.
