You’ve worked hard to get to the top of your company — or founded your own business — and what better reward than showcasing your accomplishments for Inman readers?
We’re seeking leaders in the real estate industry to participate in our ongoing profile series.
Interested? Answer our questions and send the responses, plus the requested images, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can’t wait to hear what you’re doing!
We want answers to our interview questions to be raw, candid and unedited — straight from the heart. The tone should be light. Imagine describing yourself to someone over cocktails.
Here’s what we need:
1. A large photo of you that shows you engaged in some kind of activity (perhaps a hobby) or captures you in a setting that tells some kind of story. We want the photo to be more than just a mug shot.
2. A large photo showing a space where you spend time (closet, workspace, car, house) that provides some insight into your life.
3. A third large photo of you that shows your face and shoulders clearly, without other people nearby — this will be used to create a hero image, and it doesn’t have to be a traditional headshot.
4. Answers to the following questions:
