As the owner of Mile High Nutrition and Fitness in Denver, Colorado, Alexander “Alex” Garbiso visits clients in their homes and provides individualized workout routines as well as nutritional guidance. As a certified trainer, he has experience working with three different companies helping clients achieve their fitness goals. Although he has a strong background in fitness, Alex Garbiso is currently interested in embarking on a real estate career.

When starting out working in real estate, specific skills should be learned and developed to become successful. One of the skills you should possess as a Realtor is the ability to negotiate. When you list a home for a client or if you are helping a client purchase a home, negotiating will almost always be involved. To best serve your clients’ interests, you must learn to know when you should hold firm to terms and prices, and equally important, how to maintain firm positions and still conclude the transaction.

An additional skill is being able to motivate others and come up with ideas, such as those about a home being considered and how the potential new owner could improve it. A Realtor shows houses to clients, but clients are often difficult to please, and can look at many houses without showing much interest in any of them. This is when an effective Realtor will speak up, putting forth ideas and suggestions for changes as to how the client can make the property their own. A Realtor who can improvise in this way will be well on their way to a successful career.
