“You can’t treat real estate as a job. When you start a successful career in real estate you become a business owner, not an employee. Your goal is to grow your business and your brand while providing excellent customer care, skill and knowledge.”
James Brodick is one of the nation’s leading real-estate professionals as a realtor at Realty Pros Assured. He and his wife, Ashley Brodick, are a husband and wife team who lead The Brodick Group.
James Brodick has been buying and selling real estate for over a decade. He recently retired from the Daytona Beach Police Department as a Police Lieutenant after serving his community for 23 years. Prior to becoming a Realtor, Ashley Brodick was a probate and real estate paralegal at a local law firm for 10 years after which she became a licensed title agent and worked as a lead title agent for a local title company.
How has the Brodick Group maintained a high level of service during the difficult economic times of the last few years? Adaptability is key.
“Real estate is an ever-evolving industry. Market trends vary however the fact remains people will always need a place to live and there will always be investors.”
“There are always challenges in real estate as in any profession. You must be prepared to adapt to any and all market trends and changes. Keeping a positive mindset and a can-do attitude goes a long way… you’re going to get out of it, what you put into it. Your success is a direct reflection of your work ethic.”
What makes The Brodick Group an attractive place for buyers and lenders, as well as business partners like inspectors, appraisers, title companies, handymen, and so on?
