What do you do: 

Real estate salesperson at The Daly Group, Keller Williams Philadelphia

What inspired you to start your business?: 

I became interested in real estate investing years ago while working as a clinical research assistant at The University of Pennsylvania. I wanted an education on how to build long-term wealth outside of my 9-5 job.

What's special about your business?: 

Thus far, I have learned that real estate is a people business. Learning how to talk to clients and properly diagnose their needs is equally as important as subject matter expertise.

What influenced you to seek help from SCORE?: 

A fellow real estate investor recommended SCORE to me when I was in need of guidance and mentorship.

How SCORE Helped: 

SCORE, specifically my mentor Dr. Richer, helped me to determine next steps at a critical point. Ultimately, with guidance from my mentor, I decided that joining a  brokerage was the best move for me in my journey towards building my real estate business.

What's Great About My Mentor?: 

My SCORE mentor Dr. Richer has been tremendously helpful in teaching me the language of real estate. By providing me insight from his personal experience as an investor, I am learning not only how to converse intelligently with my current and future clientele, but also how to determine their needs and how I can best serve them.

What advice whould you give to someone thinking of starting a small business?: 

Seek guidance from a mentor who has already done what you are trying to do.
