About Roxann Bernal
TELL US ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY TO REAL ESTATE. WHY DID YOU BECOME A REAL ESTATE AGENT?
My real estate journey started pretty late. I was a pre med student, who just graduated from CSU Long Beach with a degree and career that, in my opinion, served me no joy. During my first year out of college, I realized I needed to find a career that sparked passion, purpose, and happiness.
At first, my goal was get into real estate investing as a pass time until I found a clear path to a career that I loved. After a couple bad experienced with Realtors, I soon found out that the relationship between a Realtor and their clients was just as important, if not more, than the transaction itself. It was important to develop a real connection with value and trust, not just the business aspect.
Buying/selling a home is overwhelming, and I wanted to be able to help simplify the whole process for others. As I dug deeper into this and understanding about real estate and its profession, I quickly realized that this was the career for me.
