Hidden Gems: Meet Brittney Harris

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittney Harris.

Hi Brittney, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
My career in real estate began with me honing in on what my strengths were as a young professional, in addition to what was going to fulfill me during this lifetime. I specifically sought out being a Realtor because it was a career in which I could have a huge impact in the community and create unlimited success with no ceiling. Being a realtor means so much more than assisting consumers buy and sell a home.

For me, it was the opportunity to run a creative business that could be marketed and branded with my own flare while truly educating clients on how to not buy and sell homes, but educating them on the market, the process, and how to retain the wealth of owning a home with legal parameters. Oftentimes, we know to achieve the luxuries in life but not sustain and protect them. In addition, I saw a need for representation in the African – American community in the luxury market and wanted to be the resource to bridge that gap to assist the more affluent.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I would say I knew what to expect in this field, which is not for the faint at heart. It takes persistence, faith and marketing yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself, who else will? Being a Realtor is a career of heavy investment with heavy reward. It’s a pay-to-play game. You are going to work hard and you might not see the results until some time, but it does get easier to navigate once you begin to study the craft and invest in yourself.

Finding the most strategic marketing strategy to lead generate and a mentor/sponsor were two main challenges for me in this career. And to be quite honest, it takes time to find out what truly works, but when you do, its all about replicating and delegating. Finding someone in the business who to mentor/sponsor takes alignment and time as well. I knew if I was going to be successful in this career, I was going to need a person wisdom who cared about the client experience the way I did. This almost took two years, but through me believing in myself and showing up online and off, they found me.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?

Any advice for finding a mentor or networking in general?
I believe you are only as strong as your network. Your network is your net worth. The more authentic, genuine relationships you can build in any business, the more successful you will be. Be willing to add value and support relationships. People are willing to invest in you when you not only invest in yourself but in them as well. Others will begin to notice the work you are doing if you are consistently putting in the work. Networking can be as simple as getting involved in your community and volunteering and attending your chamber of commerce meetings. Introduce yourself and start a conversation by asking what others do or what brings them to the event. People love to talk about themselves and will naturally ask what you do.
