Meet Lori Wagner of Dream Homes Hunter @ Exit Elite Realty

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lori Wagner.

Alright, thank you for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us how you got started?
I’ve always been interested in real estate. Back in the day, I would grab those magazines on the stands in grocery stores and pour over the listings. I remember a program I would watch that featured area homes for sale. Of course, a click of a button today provides all the listings you could ever want to see! I decided to get my realtor’s license back in 2010 to sell part-time to friends and family and as a test to see if it were something I would like to do full time. I loved it but never had the guts to pull the plug on my full-time job as an account rep for a promotional products company. Fast forward to the start of Covid-19, and the plug was pulled out for me. I moved to sell full-time in March of 2020 and have loved every minute of it. Being let go from a company I worked at for 19 years (19 years of pretty much the same salary the entire time) was a bit disheartening but, in the end, was the very BEST thing that ever happened to me career-wise.

Last year (2021), I was in the top 10% of our agency in sales out of approximately 65 agents. Super proud of that. I also won the arising star award for the year. Bonus – I have some control over my time spent! No longer punching an 8-5 clock is a major benefit.

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The hardest to overcome is not having that steady paycheck and managing finances. Another struggle is everyone KNOWS a realtor, but not everyone knows a GOOD realtor. Being honest, hard-working, and willing to go the extra mile is hard to get across in advertising and marketing. You’ve got to be there 100% of the time for your clients and hope they are willing to give referrals when the time comes. I’m blessed with great mentors at Exit Elite Realty. They give us the tools and training to succeed, but it’s still up to the individual to put them into practice. No one is going to do the work for us.
