Meet the Team- Emily Leach
When you first start talking to Realtor Emily Leach, you can tell by her smile that she is someone that is easy to get along with and you can tell that she is a ready to take action person with a can do attitude. We had the privilege to ask Emily a few questions recently about her real estate career and here’s what we learned.
Why did you want to become a Realtor?
That’s easy, I love working with people. I love meeting new people. I enjoy being in beautiful homes and love finding matches – people for homes and homes for people.
Why did you want to be a part of Fazendin?
I talked to other companies, but I love the family environment, the support and the people here. They are all so welcoming and everyone here helps one another.
For someone that was thinking about becoming a Realtor, what information would you share with them?
When I took the pre-license classes, I did weekend classes and on-line classes. The more I learned in the classes, the more excited I was about my decision to do this. My friends always have told me that I’d been really good at helping clients buy and sell homes.
What has surprised you about being a Realtor?
That it is just so much fun. Every client is a new situation to assist. Nothing is the same.
Is there a certain age or stage that you like to specialize with?
I’ve helped people with rentals and families wanting to purchase or sell million dollar properties. I’ve worked in Minneapolis and in the suburbs. I love all spectrums of ages, stages and price ranges.
What does your family say about your career?
My family is super supportive and my three children are super excited about my success. They are glad mom is doing this, so are my brothers, my parents and my husband. Everyone always asks me questions about the market and how it’s going.
How have your past experiences lead to this role?
I formerly worked in retail sales and management. I then transitioned into merchandising and visual merchandising. All of these experiences have helped me when working with clients. Even the home staging is similar to visual merchandising and what will appeal to a buyer. I’ve been home with my children for a few years, but I was never idle. I’ve worked part-time for my father’s business helping with accounts payable. All of these experiences have helped me keep my skills current and helped me to be ready for this opportunity.
Tell us some fun facts about you that people may not know.
I love to run. For the last six years, I have been running two half-marathons a year. My goal has always been to get to a full marathon and I accomplished that goal last year. It’s good to have goals in your professional and personal life. Our family loves going to the cabin and my children are super busy with hockey, lacrosse and soccer. I like to be busy and productive too. I want to get right to task. I plan to be busy this year working for more and more clients. I love working hard for my clients so they have success!
If having fun is a priority, yet wanting someone who is easy to talk to about your needs and wants with home buying or selling, contact Emily Leach and let her put her “on-task” spirit to work for you!
