“There is a difference between being busy & being productive, and the distinction between those two is what sets you apart”
through hard work, persever - ance and an ability to learn quickly. I pride myself on being an uplifting competitive spirit within the team. I have been fortunate enough to be sur - rounded by a group of people at RRA who all work towards a common goal. I also have the unique experience of starting at RRA as an intern, so I know what it is like to be young and hungry to learn. Paying forward the knowledge I have gained to new brokers and incoming in - terns is something I take great pride in. In this business, there is always more to learn, so being receptive to learning more from
the veteran brokers is key to re- fining my own business acumen. What I bring to the industry personally, is a sense of honor and integrity to the service I provide. From market informa - tion to underwriting insight or just a conversation about what is best for them, I pride myself on always being that go-to re- source for my clients. I always want to be known as a broker that is reliable, trustworthy and well-informed. Who or what has been the strongest influence in your career? The strongest influ - ence in my career would be my father. From being young and training for sports to learning how to be handy around the house, my father raised me with sound morals and a hard work ethic. Once I was old enough to appreciate his business sense, he really helped me learn and understand what it means to be a respected professional. As someone who has been at the top of his industry across the coun - try, he demonstrates the values and fortitude it takes to truly be not just a great businessperson, but a good man. Tell us how and when you began your career in the profession you are in, about your current position and why you choose the field/ profession you are in today? I began my career in Real Estate six years ago at RRA, while I was still in school at Temple University. I had the opportu - nity to meet the team when I was an intern and first getting into the industry. Starting with such a respectable, new group helped mold me into the broker I am today, and really opened my eyes to how rewarding the industry is both financially and personally. What inspiring word of advice would you give to a young executive graduating from college today? Some words of advice I would give: un - derstand that being successful is about having long term vision. Know that you must make sac - rifices and stick to that vision. Everyone has a dream of being successful, but the people who have specific goals and a clear path are the ones that have the best chance of making it. There is a difference between being busy and being productive, and the distinction between those two is what sets you apart. Wake up every morning prepared to take action that puts you one day closer your goals. MAREJ

My greatest professional ac- complishment was closing my first apartment deal as a young broker at RRA. After transition- ing into a full commission roll you begin scrambling to find your first deal, and as young guy who is not established it can be nerve-racking. So, having the ability to persevere and bring my first deal to the table gave me the confidence I needed to keep battling toward building my career. What is your most notable project, deal or transaction?
My most notable deal was port - folio sale in Wilmington of 130 apartment units. All four prop - erties were held by long term owners in the market. What really made this deal special was the fact that we were able to close during quarantine due
to Covid-19. As many deals were falling apart, we were able to keep the deals alive and provide our clients with a smooth and fruitful transaction. How do you contribute to your company and/or the industry? I contribute to RRA
