After working in banking for over 10 years and bartending for a year in between, Daniel Brown decided to try something new.
In 2007, he was encouraged by a friend to get into real estate. At that time, the Great Recession had just hit and the economy was suffering its worst set-backs since the Great Depression. When many people were stepping away from real estate, Daniel was just beginning.
Over the course of 4 years, he closed on over a staggering 400 homes and gained a vast amount of experience in real estate.
That experience showed Daniel how important it was for agents to have some sort of financial stability so that they could focus on client needs instead of commissions. Daniel established a unique business model in the real estate game.
