After graduating from Illinois State University in December of 2017 with a degree in finance, Paul Odom decided to look for opportunities in Central Illinois, rather than head back home up in Chicago. Paul heard about Adam Merrick Real Estate from a friend who had attended one of the Career Events held monthly here in our office.
Paul didn’t have his career path nailed down, but he did know that he wanted the ability to structure his own day while allowing him to work in a team environment. Paul was quickly drawn to the culture of the team, and began his journey to obtain his real estate license.
With coaching and guidance from our Sales Manager, Frank McCloud, in just 30 short days, Paul was officially a licensed real estate broker. He recommends that those interested in this career path have some sales experience so they have some familiarity for what to expect.
Paul tells us he has learned a lot about our community and what it has to offer, and he believes this will help him best serve his clients here at AMRE. He strives to build strong personal and business relationships and is confident he is in the right place to do so. When asked what has been the most surprising to learn thus far, Paul says:
“How little age matters. The expectations are the same for younger and more seasoned agents.”
He goes on to say that he is excited to be surrounded by a group of such motivated individuals and looks forward to being challenged every day. From agents to administrative staff – Paul says his favorite part about the team so far, is everyone’s willingness to help out.
Our AMRE Family is excited to welcome Paul on board and we can’t wait to watch him grow on the team and thrive to meet his goals.
