FELICIA SMITH, REAL ESTATE AGENT & EDUCATOR
Felicia started working in the real estate industry after being introduced to an internship opportunity at a local mortgage brokerage in college. During that period, she decided to continue pursuing the real estate industry further while studying business marketing as a major.
Deciding to get her real estate license while still in college allowed her to pursue this career track while completing her studies. As for her background in education, Ms. Smith has always had a passion for coaching, teaching, and mentoring others. This started as early as high school, being a team leader in athletics, an after-school tutor for younger students, and a peer mentor among her peers in high school.
Felicia was always told by her teachers that she should pursue a career in education; however, she did not see herself becoming a teacher in any capacity. Working in the real estate sales field simultaneously while working as a tutor at a night school program, it wasn’t until she graduated from her undergraduate studies in 2011 that she finally found a link between my role in real estate and teaching.
In 2013 Ms. Smith decided to continue her studies and pursue a Master of Education in professional studies, which later allowed her to pursue adult education opportunities. Since then, she has become a licensed real estate instructor in New York, teaching real estate and as a college instructor.
Felicia's business mission is to help consumers, students, clients, and communities through education on real estate sales and the finance purchasing and selling process. In addition, she has developed her business to be a resource to those she encounters.
Ms. Smith says that her personality was never that of a traditional salesperson, and even though she was good at what she did, she struggled to find her niche in the industry. For her, that was through education, guidance, and mentorship of those she works with.
