About Elijah Tejeda
TELL US ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY TO REAL ESTATE.
Growing up, I seen my father operate his own business ever since I can remember. He planted the seed in my mind that the only option to make it in this world, to be successful in my career path and in other aspect’s of my life, was to work for myself. I became a Real Estate Agent to help my community be knowledgeable and invest in Real Estate without bringing onto them the intimidating aspect of it. I want to see the joy in people’s face’s while giving them the key’s to their dream home. I aspire to help my community feel advocated for and that they too, are able to buy, invest, or even just to gain knowledge in Real Estate.
DOES ANYTHING FROM YOUR PREVIOUS JOB HELP YOU AS AN AGENT?
Previous experience I have that relates to my skill’s in being a Real Estate Agent is when I worked as an assistant for a Real Estate Attorney. She would
educate me on the basic fundamental’s of the loan process, lender’s, credit importance and knowledge as well as other contributing factors of owning/
investing in Real Estate.
WHAT MOST EXCITES YOU ABOUT YOUR WORK?
I am most excited about constantly expanding my knowledge on new things or, obtaining more of an in depth knowledge of what I already know. I feel
there is always room to grow in this industry and I am also looking forward to learning from other’s.
WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU WHEN YOU’RE NOT WORKING?
In my free time I enjoy discovering the beautiful outdoors of our very own, Bay Area. You can catch me on a walk on the nearest Bay trail, fishing on a San
Francisco pier, or grabbing coffee while enjoying a drive around the Bay Area.
WHO INSPIRES YOU AND WHY?
My community inspires me in all area’s of my life. I grew up in a neighborhood where most adults had little to no knowledge on Real estate and financial
literacy. It’s almost a privilege to most people I grew up around to obtain knowledge on this sort of thing. This motivates me on doing my best in my career to make this information obtainable. To teach other’s in a way they can understand.
