Christian Business Profile: Real Estate Agent Tiffany Palacios
When real estate agent, Tiffany Palacios started taking classes to acquire her real estate license, she had no idea that helping the people of the Houston area buy and sell their homes would become her passion.
“My brother got me into the business,” Palacios said. “He started doing residential wholesaling and I took an interest. But he kept talking in real estate terms that I didn’t understand, so I decided to get my license to understand him and his business.”
But, as she went through the licensing process she began to fall in love with the stories she heard and the people who were helped by other real estate agents.
“My brother eventually left the business, but it seems to have worked out perfectly for me,” she said.
The native Texan said helping people find their dream home not only interested her, but she realized it fit well with her personality.
“I love helping people already, and my main personality trait is kindness, so I love that I’m able to solve people’s problems,” Palacios said. “If I’m talking to a potential client, going through a rough patch with a listing, or going back and forth with a listing price, I like to make light of the situation and explain things on a buyer’s level to help them understand the process.”
Palacios’ ultimate reward is getting to the closing table with her clients and seeing everyone happy.
“I love to create win-win situations on both sides of the sale,” she said. “Every time I’m able to accomplish that, it’s the greatest feeling.”
She said she strives to meet and exceed her client’s expectations, whether they’re buying or selling, so they will want to refer her to their friends, family and people they meet on a daily basis.
“I want them to be so happy with their experience that they become walking, talking billboards out there for me every day,” she said.
Although the real estate agent has only been in the business for less than two years, she has high aspirations.
“I have goals of becoming a go-to luxury agent in the Memorial and River Oaks area,” she said. “That’s on my big goals to-do list.”
But for now, as she works her way up the ladder of success, she serves communities all over the Houston area.
“I’m from Rosenberg, so I’m very familiar with that area. So, if someone is looking out that way, I can definitely help them,” she said. “I can also help with listings up to Sugar Land, and through Katy and into Houston.”
As she acquires more listings, Palacios sees her work not only as an opportunity to further her career, but as a way of being an instrument for God’s work.
“I’m a firm believer in everything happens for a reason,” she said. “I try to tell people that God has already qualified me for this or I wouldn’t be here.”
The real estate agent said knowing God is with her through every aspect of her life and career gives her the comfort she needs to get through even her roughest days.
“I remember that He puts me in the right place at the right time and that he has already blessed me greatly,” she said. “That’s what gives me the confidence to face every challenge.”
