Today we’re talking about how UMI Real Estate began. I talk about my life and why I became a real estate agent. I explain my decision to start up UMI Real Estate instead of joining one of the other real estate branches in the area. We discuss what its like to be an independent real estate agent in the Blue Mountains. As an independent I am free to tailor the marketing of a property to fit the needs of the vendor. I’m not governed by the rules of a franchise office. We can get creative with what we do and change direction without having to go through corporate channels which can be time consuming.
