Handling Crises as a Real Estate Agent:
An Interview with Monique Carter

Covid-19 has upended the housing market almost overnight. With the sudden change, many agents have been left wondering how to cope, but housing has weathered economic storms before. While this storm came hard and sudden, smart agents will adapt and thrive.

We recently sat down veteran real estate agent, Monique Carter, to learn how she is handling the Covid-19 crisis. Monique has been a real estate agent for 25 years in one of the toughest markets in the U.S. She weathered the Dot Com bust and the Great Recession and managed to come out even stronger. This is her story.
