My name is Tony Perrette. I was born and raised in a beautiful town in California called San Luis Obispo. Here I grew up and graduated. I met my beautiful wife in a neighboring town and started our family.
My working career was always in sales or retail. I guess I like the “People Business”. I started out in a convenience store, then grocery, and then real estate. I first received my real estate license in 1991 and worked almost exclusively with “for sale by owners” for that year before stepping out of the market. I returned to the grocery industry for 10 more years. During this time I was inspired to write a booklet called “For Sale By Owner, A Guide To Selling Your Own Home”.
Unsatisfied with my J.O.B. I retested and received my real estate license again in 2001. The market was different. I began selling immediately finding myself working with investors. Quickly I was learning my new industry: what worked for sellers, what worked for buyers, what worked for investors. The nuances between the three were slight, but very REAL. I found that if I could orchestrate between them and create Win Win, we had a sale; sounds basic right?
While developing my own business, I was recruited (thankfully) by a nationwide company called Keller Williams Realty(third largest real estate company by agent count (April 6, 2009 http://www.ourtribune.com/article.php?id=7133)) . This company was a major turning point in both my knowledge of the industry and career. The company is knowledge based and heavy on educating its agents in every aspect. As my knowledge grew so did my business.
Eventually I became a team leader (management) for our local office in Pismo Beach, California. I was now teaching and instructing over 100 agents on how to grow their business.
Today I fix and flip investment homes back out to the market. Real estate is an incredible business whether you are buying selling or investing. I would highly recommend it both for investment and career.
