Luis Perez juggled getting an education with selling houses to pay for it
  • You can hold down a job and a real estate business. It requires being disciplined and having a plan.
  • Call reluctance goes away when you have the mindset of service.
  • Contact your COI/PC directly instead of hiding behind digital communication, and you can "train" people to look for business for you.

Originally on course to go into medicine (a family tradition), when the scholarships ran out, Perez needed to find a way to complete his degree without the burden of debt.

Realizing that sales was the fastest way to do that, at his dad’s suggestion, he looked into real estate. He immediately fell in love with the opportunity, got his license and quickly learned a few things.

First, time was a precious commodity. With his determined spirit and passion for the income potential, he learned how to set daily minimum standards and manage his time. He blocked his days so that the prospecting that was done in the morning resulted in afternoon appointments and left other times available for classes and homework.

In 2015, Perez sold 43 homes while attending college full time. We hear all the time from our listeners that they aren’t sure what to do; they need the steady income of their current job, but want to pursue real estate or take their current business to a higher level.
