HOW A GROUP OF SUCCESSFUL WOMEN INSPIRED AN ENTREPRENEUR TO CREATE A FEMALE POWER GROUP.
In 2006, @quianawatson_moved to Atlanta from Fayetteville, North Carolina. Being new in the city wasn't easy and despite having an MBA, she was only able to find work as a telemarketer. Long days of calling strangers took its toll on her. After a stressful day at work, she went to a local bar to relax.
That trip to the bar changed her life. Shortly after she arrived, she noticed a group of women that walked in. The women were all dressed immaculate and carried themselves with extreme confidence. Quiana said every one of them had a boss aura to them. She was intrigued and wanted to know what they did for a living. She started a conversation with one of the women and when she asked what line of work they were in, she told her that they were all realtors for an all-women real estate firm.
Quiana was so inspired by the ladies that she decided to get her realtor license. In 2007, she became a full-time agent with the firm. She moved up fast within the ranks and established a name for herself in the Atlanta real estate community.
After realizing that she could grow at a faster pace with her own team, she became her own boss and opened her firm, Quiana Watson & Associates. She now has her own team of female realtors which include team members @kiarajroberts and @breeismyrealtor. Her run-in with the ladies at the bar years ago has now come full circle, as she has built an all-women real estate force in Atlanta.
Today, Quiana stands at the elite level of realtors. She is a top 5% producing realtor in the Metro Atlanta area and currently has listings as high as $21,000,000.
In episode 66 of @earnyourleisure, Quiana covered a wide range of topics. She gave tips for home sellers and buyers, she gave insight on the inner workings of being a realtor, she spoke about her business model for selling homes and she gave detailed information on the hottest home appreciation areas in and around Atlanta.
EYL 66 will be out today at 5 pm est.
