Today we’d like to introduce you to Leslie Hogan.
Hi Leslie, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I have 3 beautiful daughters who are my WHY in everything I do. I am originally from Memphis TN and moved to Kansas cIty in 1995 and love living in the Midwest.
I worked in the legal field from 1991 to 2013 as a litigation paralegal and gained extensive experience in conflict resolution, contracts, mediation and real estate. In 2013 I decided to enter the real estate world as an agent and hit the ground running selling over 2 million my first year. I was asked to become an agent trainer and coach while I continued to be a listing and buyers agent for my clients.
In March of 2020, I was asked to interview for the managing broker/vice president position of ReeceNichols Parkville and was hired. I have been leading my team of 84 agents since March of 2020 and helped grow the Parkville office by 213%.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Absolutely not. This business has its struggles but if you can stay the course, do your fundamentals consistently, then you can achieve a more consistent business. I have been a single Mom through my real estate career so there were times I had to get up and show up to make sure my pipeline was filled. My goal was to offer a real estate experience to my clients that was above and beyond and become a referral based business. I achieved that in 2017 and now I spend my days coaching, training, mentoring and educating my agents to build the same referral based business. Choosing the real estate field was the best career decision I’ve ever made. It can be an extremely rewarding experience and i am always thankful for the adversities, it helps me be a better leader.
