Meet: Dawn Wheeler, REALTOR®, United Real Estate Lexington KY
Tell us about your career.
I have an addiction to all types of properties! I started investing in flipping a few properties because I have a passion for design. I can see the potential beauty in every home. That lead me to become a Realtor® and eventually, a Lifetime Member of the Top Producer Club. I am also a certified VA Realtor.
"Where there's a will, there's a way – so I pray!"
What inspires you?
My clients inspire me! I love seeing them so happy to either buy their first home or to upgrade, downsize or relocate. Knowing that I can make someone happy and help make the transition as smooth as possible is so rewarding. I wouldn't be where I am today if I wasn't blessed with the amazing clients that have come into my life.
What is your biggest challenge?
There are at least five other Realtors as far as you can throw a rock, so in order to keep clients from going elsewhere, it's a struggle to hustle every day to get your business started and keep it going. I didn't quit my full-time job with the Commonwealth of Kentucky for the first five years of being a Realtor, but it was the best decision for me. I have more availability to devote myself and time to all clients. In this career, your job is never done, even after closing; you need to keep the attention of all past clients, as well!
What is your secret weapon?
Building relationships with my clients and earning their trust the old fashioned, organic, personable way. My clientele know they can trust in me and that I'm not just looking for a sale.
