This week’s episode covers a discussion I had with two friends and real estate investors in the Houston, Texas area.
Conor Watkins discovered sales when working at Best Buy. He knew he wanted to do sales and eventually found his way into real estate. He quickly got traction on the apartment leasing side, where he was doing up to 30 transactions in a month after only one year.
This got his buddy Ben to take getting his real estate license a bit more seriously, and soon after, Ben also jumped into the game.
They dive into some of the highs and lows, wins and losses they’ve faced since starting off.
Perhaps the lowest point was when the brokerage they were doing really well with decided to send them a cease & desist letter and refuse to pay them tens of thousands of dollars of earned commissions.
They didn’t let that stop them, and they’ve continued to push towards success nonetheless, even partnering on several deals together.
