I was 24 when I bought my first house. I stumbled upon my real estate agent when I called the number on a “For Sale” sign for a house that I thought was cute. I didn’t end up buying that house, but she became my agent almost out of default ….or more accurately put, her persistence.
I knew that I wanted to live in either one of two different areas, both located close to downtown Greenville. Her niche was an area 20 minutes away from there. The first Saturday we looked at properties, instead of showing me houses where I wanted to live, we looked at 5 homes in her niche, the place that she was most passionate for.
