The real estate industry is one of the most challenging industries because of the continuous market changes and fluctuations in the cost of living. Yet, despite these challenges, Trent Beaver has managed to make a name for himself in the world of real estate. Unlike some real estate professionals, his career started by chance after a bad buying experience, ultimately causing him to dive into the industry headfirst with a willingness to learn the ropes and succeed.
“When buying my home in 2012, I had a truly less than stellar experience that inspired me to get my license and provide a far better experience to clients looking to buy or sell properties. I didn’t want others to go through what I went through during a time that should’ve been exciting, so I started learning, got my real estate license, and have sold houses ever since,” said Beaver. “Having grown up in a small town of Parker, Arizona, right along the Colorado River, I didn’t expect to become a real estate connoisseur. However, I’ve always possessed two important characteristics, honesty and loyalty, which I believe have helped me get even further with my career.”
One of the worst experiences for clients is dealing with a real estate agent who doesn’t put them first. It often leads to many questions and added frustration while making the experience more stressful instead of enjoyable. After experiencing such frustration in his personal life, Trent Beaver decided he wanted to provide the opposite experience for clients, ultimately putting them and their needs before anything else.
“I listen to my clients and thoroughly discuss their wants and needs with them. I believe in the importance of good communication and strive to respond as quickly as possible so that my clients don’t have to wait long to hear from me,” shared Beaver. “I know how important it is to provide the same level of excellent service to clients, regardless of the price range of the home. In addition to providing the same level of service, I never cut corners and always develop a creative marketing strategy to help my clients find what they need or sell when they’re ready to move, regardless of the current state of the market in the area.”
Trent has used multiple marketing strategies to grow as a real estate agent while providing more services to clients. While living in a retirement community, he’s realized the importance of branching out and using various marketing methods because not everyone utilizes social media like the younger generations. As a result, he’s built his real estate business through social media, virtual listing appointments, and referrals that come directly from those he’s worked with and impressed in the past.
If there is anything you can learn from Trent Beaver, life can take unexpected turns, but things often happen for a reason. While his less than stellar experience buying a home nearly a decade ago was frustrating, it fueled the fire within him, leading to his passion for real estate. Pursuing real estate may have happened unexpectedly, but it was a career meant for Trent Beaver because of his communication skills, vast real estate knowledge, honesty, and integrity.
