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.
Monique S. Carter is President and C.E.O. of Carter and Associates Realty. She was also a former member of the board of directors for the Greater Metropolitan Association of Realtors (GMAR).
She has been a licensed real estate professional for 25 years and sold over 300 million dollars in gross revenue sales and has sold well over 3500 homes in her career. As a full-time Real Estate Broker specializing in Luxury Estate properties and short sale ventures, Monique has a vast clientele of Bishops and Pastors, Corporate Executives, Entrepreneurs, Celebrities, First Time Buyer and now Professional Athletes.
Prior to real estate, Monique worked as a Senior Supervisor and Regional Training Manager for McDonald’s Corporation. In the corporate world, she learned the importance of discipline, goal setting, starting early and finishing late, and how to be structured while maintaining flexibility.
