Today we’d like to introduce you to Shanika Benson.
Hi Shanika, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I started in the summer of 2005… I was looking for additional income due to I was a new mother and real estate was always an interest of mine I had a real estate investor friend who also encouraged me to look into getting my license.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Yes, When I initially started out it was…I catered to investors who primarily bought distressed homes for example foreclosures and that was pretty much all I sold for several years.
I exited the business in 2012 for personal reasons but I always vowed to return when the opportunity presented itself which it did when my employer at the time in 2018 decided to lay the majority of the company and my position was eliminated
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I pride myself on educating my clients on what to expect from this homebuying journey… the highs & lows! I pride myself on setting realistic expectations and going to extra mile for them.
Before we go, is there anything else you can share with us?
That buying or selling your home can be a stressful time in your life but as long as you pick an agent that wants what’s best for you and negotiates in your best interest then you have halfway won the battle.
