My Next Play – Owning a Real Estate Brokerage
It has been six years since I led LinkedIn’s market entry and product launch into China. I was frequently challenged by complex business problems that required sophisticated technical solutions. I enjoyed working with and managing extremely talented, cutting-edge teams paired with complex technical solutions in order to deliver projects and programs under tight timelines. Leaving the Technology sector was a big decision for me after 13 years, but I was in search of more challenges.
Real Estate Industry
Real Estate was an industry that I was already working in for over 11 years at the time. I saw an opportunity for innovation in an industry often leveraging legacy processes; not just in technology, but in the area of Agent quality and the overall customer experience. I wake up each and every day driven by the desire to help as many of our customers as I can, and to provide them with a real estate journey filled with trust and integrity, much needed real estate education, strategic planning and a smooth and wonderful customer experience. The last 6 years have been an amazing journey of growth and discovery, both personally and for the business as a whole. I am excited to announce my next play is to continue to build out more high-quality Agents to further define and lead our industry into the next century!
Keller Williams Santa Clara Valley
I am pleased to announce that I will be launching a new Keller Williams Brokerage as Founder and Operating Principle, named Keller Williams Santa Clara Valley. Before this area was known as the Silicon Valley, the South Bay was called Santa Clara Valley, which pairs nicely as our headquarters is based in Santa Clara as well. We are also exploring future expansion into surrounding areas. Located in the heart of the Silicon Valley, we believe that we provide the optimal location for our Agents to more effectively serve their customers. This new venture will allow us as Agents to further establish high quality Agents in the industry.
Why Keller Williams?
I have explored many brokerages and Keller Williams is still the company that was built by Agents for Agents. This opportunity is a prime example of a company that gives their Agents opportunities that I have not seen with any other firm. We don’t brand the company; rather, we allow you as the Agent to brand yourself, subject to the rules of the Department of Real Estate. Their systems and models are pushing the envelope and they have researched and defined not only how to create successful Real Estate Agents, but also to ensure that these agents are financially sound and running profitable businesses. Last but not least, their latest investment in technology is focused upon empowering us as Agents to perform less backend work, and to streamline our processes so that we can do what we do best: Educate, strategize and service our customers. I am proud to be a part of an organization that not only sees the value that each and every one of us brings to our industry but is also working hard to continue pushing us into the future.
