IN 2020, ANNE MARIE ROGERS, a Certified IRA Services Professional (CISP), was awarded the Think Realty Honors Award for Real Estate Investing Services. For the past eight years, Rogers has worked at Quest Trust Compa- ny, one of the nation’s leading Self-Directed IRA companies, where she currently serves as Sales Officer. As one of the lead female public speakers at Quest, Rogers travels around the country edu - cating investors on the benefits of self-direction. Rogers teaches Americans how to take control of their retirement through her experience at Quest and from personal experience doing her own note investments, starting in her early 20s. “I oversee our IRA Specialists who educate new and existing clients on the benefits of self-direc - tion, then aid in account establishment and facili - tation of moving existing retirement accounts. For those who may not be familiar with Self-Directed IRAs, they’re a means of taking control of your own retirement. Self-Directed IRAs allow inves - tors to utilize retirement accounts to invest in pri - vate or alternative assets like real estate, private companies, promissory notes and so many other opportunities, all while making tax-deferred profits. In my time at Quest, I’ve worn many dif - ferent hats from working in our New Accounts Department, to managing our Marketing or Sales Departments, it’s all been a joy and a great learn - ing opportunity,” she said. Here is a Q&A with Anne Marie Rogers: What characteristics do you exhibit that have made you successful? “I think it takes a strong blend of many different characteristics to make someone successful; and truthfully, success is defined so differently from person to person. However, I think the biggest strength I exhibit that has propelled me to success is something I learned at a very early age. In order to achieve the best and continue pushing yourself to succeed, it’s important to set goals and run for them as hard as you can. If you have something to visualize and work towards, you have direction for not only where you’re headed, but also how to get there. The secret with goals is to set small, realistic goals that will lead you to a greater pur - pose or achievement. Once I’ve achieved a goal, I’m immediately looking to the future for how I can push myself to the next challenge.”
