Check Out Sheila Dadashzadeh’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sheila Dadashzadeh.

Hi Sheila, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I moved to San Diego in 2005 to attend UCSD. As I was working towards my degree, I got a part-time job with a top producing agent and began my real estate career as a marketing assistant for her. I was going to school full time and any other free time I had, I would be working because I was so intrigued in the real estate field. Once I graduated, I studied and took my Real Estate license test and as soon as I passed, my boss fired me from my marketing position on her team because she knew I needed to start my sales career ASAP. She saw the potential in me and knew I had what it took to be successful. It was 2007 and the real estate crash happened early into my career. As difficult as that was, especially as a brand new agent, I am so grateful that I was able to learn and go through that as I know now how to handle any market. A lot of Realtors left real estate during that time, and I just tried to soak up everything I could and get more knowledgeable. I learned how to deal with bank foreclosures, short sales, helped home owners who were underwater get out from that…all experiences I would not have gotten had I not gone through that time in real estate.

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?
Real estate is never smooth!! Being your own boss is difficult in itself as you have to have a lot of self-motivation and drive. And there are always ups and downs in the market, slower times and some crazy busy times where you feel like you can’t handle it all. But I am appreciative of it all because it has brought me to where I am now. I have great clientele, mostly referral business at this point, which is the highest compliment when a past client is so happy with you that they refer their friends and family.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a Realtor in San Diego. I help clients buy and sell homes, and invest. I specialize in first-time homeowners and investors as this is where my heart truly is. People who are buying for the first time are just so excited to get in the game and start building their wealth. Once a first time homeowner has bought their home, I tell them that we are going to do this again in the near future, whether it’s making money off of that home to buy the next bigger one, or using the equity to start investing in rental or commercial property, etc… Most people think the American Dream is just buying their house to live in, but I like to think the dream is much bigger than that!

Is there anyone you’d like to thank or give credit to?
My first team leader that I mentioned before was the person I learned pretty much everything from. And from then on, I have always joined teams that I felt were in the business to do the best for their clients. I have learned from so many people along the way. Also, my friends and family always supported me, whether it was trusting me enough to buy or sell homes from me, or sending my referrals along the way. They have always been my biggest supporters.
