Nic Fett, a Realtor at Real Estate Avenues: The Brokerage (www.reathebrokerage.com), has always had a passion for helping people as well as an interest in real estate.
Tell us a little about your business. – As a Realtor, finding the perfect house for your client is an art and a skill. The most rewarding aspect of my job is finding that property, and getting to experience the excitement and emotional high of helping my clients achieve their dream of becoming a homeowner. My goal is to exceed each client’s expectations and to earn their business in the future, as well as help the friends and family reach their real estate goals.
How did you get started in the business? – Growing up, my parents were constantly making improvements to the houses we lived in. My father was a highly skilled contractor and following him around gave me a natural interest in houses at a young age. My first career choice was becoming a firefighter, but after completing fire school I quickly recognized that I didn’t have the passion that I was sure I would have. My mother suggested I shadow her Realtor for a day to see if I had any interest. I took her advice and was hooked! I earned my real estate license shortly thereafter, and it has been the best decision I’ve ever made.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced professionally? – Finding my niche. In order to find it in real estate, you have to be honest with yourself and figure out what makes you tick. Once you answer that question, you have to decide how to infuse that into your business. (Easier said than done!) Given my interest in becoming a firefighter, I decided to specialize in helping our local every day heroes such as first responders, military, and teachers.
What has been your most important achievement professionally? – Being awarded the 2015 “Newcomer of the Year” award at my previous brokerage, which housed nearly 200 Realtors. Real estate is not the easiest career to begin, and even more difficult while working early mornings as a part-time supervisor at UPS. It was my goal to win the award, not only for recognition of my efforts, but as a mental victory. When I won that, I knew I could truly do this!
What do you see as the biggest turning point in your life? – February 21st, 2016, the day I signed on with Real Estate Avenues: The Brokerage, LLC as well as my last day working for UPS. This was when I decided to pursue real estate full time, and it was a great decision. While Real Estate Avenues: The Brokerage is a newer company, “The Brokerage” is comprised of only top-tier agents that have been hand-picked, so being recruited means much more than a joining a brokerage with a revolving door. Some of the top producing agents in Lincoln hang their licenses at this company. I was thrilled to get the opportunity and am honored to be a part of it!
If you could be successful in another profession, what would it be? – Real estate development. I admire the fact that they get to develop communities, as well as being able to see the change that they create. I also think it would be exciting to leave your mark on the community that creates a legacy of sorts.
What is the best way to get in contact with you? – At (402) 326-5632 or Nic.Fett@REAtheBrokerage.com. Please contact me with any questions you may have, even if you’re not quite ready to buy or sell. I am happy to help you find the starting line!
