A conversation with
We recently had a chance to sit down and chat with Texas Real Estate Agent Khayla McKay.
Q: It’s an honor to speak with you today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Thank you for reaching out! My name is Khayla and I am from Arkansas, but Ive been living in Houston,Texas for 7 years! I’ve been a Realtor for two years and I have definitely found my passion in life!
Q: Why did you decide to follow a career in real estate?
I graduated with my degree in 2017 and I had such a hard time finding a job. I eventually ended up getting a job as a Marketing Assistant at a Brokerage and the rest is history.
Q: As a real estate professional, what is one of the challenges you face in the industry? How do you overcome them?
I think being mentally tough is a huge challenge in this industry. We are 100% commission based and there are times when deals are going to fall through, people are going to ghost you, and many more things that are emotionally and mentally draining. I am constantly finding ways to stay positive and have a better mindset when it comes to handling the ups and downs of Real Estate.
Q: What do you enjoy most about your day-to-day job?
I LOVE going out with my buyers and finding their homes! Seeing their faces when they finally find the one is such a great feeling.
Q: Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I love working with First-Time Home Buyers. That’s my niche right now and I love it. It’s a great feeling to know you helped someone become a homeowner even when they didn’t think it was going to be possible.
Q: What career goals do you have for the next five years? What’s next for you?
In the next five years I want to be killing it. I want to either mentor new agents or have a team. Being able to support and help newer agents is something I look forward to over the next few years.
Q: What’s a myth about real estate?
That it is just like the TV shows. It definitely is not!
Q: Finally, how can people connect with you if they want to learn more.
