This week we celebrated National Women's Day and to keep the momentum going we sat down with our CEO Lisa Bloskas to pick her brain for some tips that are sure to help any new Realtor succeed in the industry.
Before founding Willow Bend Title, Lisa founded North Vine Realty, a brokerage with offices in Dallas, Houston, and Austin. She holds over twenty years of entrepreneurial experience that encompasses real estate, manufacturing, and finance. Lisa's many years of real estate experience, level of education and knowledge keep her on the cutting edge of real estate trends and technology.
Here is what Lisa had to say when we asked her to share her 10 Tips For Success in the real estate industry.
