Win, Lose, Love, Laugh, Cry & Keep on Trucking: 15 years of Real Estate

By
Real Estate Agent with Blu House Properties

Win, Lose, love, laugh, cry and keep on trucking.  15 years I have been a real estate broker in the West Michigan area. I started when I was 20 years old and sold 4 houses my first year. I have learned a lot from trial/ error & success/failure.

In 2015 I sold 151 houses for $26 Million in volume & $780,000 in GCI.  I also own several other companies now including: Rent Blu Property Mgt., Mariani Construction, Blu Holdings and several investment LLC's. 

 It has been a long road over 15 years but Im very blessed to be where Im at in my career. Im excited to be back on ActiveRain and I hope to teach by experience, lead by example and fail forward with your encouragement. 

I purchased a Keller Williams franchise this year in addition to my current local brokerage that I will keep. My team will sell $50 million in volume, I will recruit 100 agents and expand into another city. 

Please join me in tackling 2016 as I also follow your success, support your goals and learn from your advice.

Very funny I look at your post and your profile photo... so after 15 years is it "just for men?" or you did not pick up a few gray hairs?? also how is your wine consumption???Endre

Im only 35 years old now Endre. That is a 2012 picture so I will update to be fair. I have a few gray hairs but not many, blessed with a full head of hair.  Wine on occasion for sure but "red win is good for your heart", right?   Fortunately I have great staff and a manager at each company so I actually get to enjoy life.

Ryan,  I did meet Endre Barath, Jr. He is perfectly matching that photo of his, but even more handsome and well rounded in person.

Endre, don't you know, that gray hair is a huge trend now? :)
