Read on for our next Team Member Spotlight: An Interview with Carrie Harting.
So, how did you get into real estate?
I originally started in the title industry, processing paperwork for potential new home buyers! I worked 9-5 in the industry for 7 years and got my real estate license in the process since sales is what I’m best at. Then spent many long hours building my business during nights and weekends. Got too busy and knew If I wanted to really succeed at one thing, I would need to move on from the other. And, of course, chose real estate in the end because I loved working with people face-to-face, could be my own boss, and the possibilities were endless!
Is there a particular area of the business that you specialize in?
I specialize in residential real estate, representing both buyers and sellers!
How long have you been in real estate?
About 10 years altogether!
How long have you been with Boutique Realty?
It’s hard to believe I’ve been with Boutique almost 4 years now! Before that I worked for Coldwell Banker Gundaker and Keller Williams, but found myself wanting a smaller more personal company. I am now lucky to call Julie one of my best friends!
What do you love about being a real estate agent in St. Louis?
I love St. Louis because this is where I was born and raised, and most of my family still lives here. Not to mention I know all the ins and outs! 😉
What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your resume alone?
I am an adventure seeker and love being active and traveling as much as possible! I also took up surfing over the last few years which is rare for a midwesterner but love new challenges that test my abilities.
What is your favorite advice to give your clients?
Never justify or force a purchase too much, you will FEEL IT when it’s the one!
What are you known for?
I’m known for living life to the fullest, trying to be a positive influence for people who surround me, being sporty, traveling and being a free spirit who loves to have fun!
What do you like to do for fun?
Travel (especially love my surf trips), golf, tennis, yoga, hiking, kayaking, softball….basically anything sporty and outdoors. and music; going to concerts!
What’s your favorite song?
I have no clue what my favorite song is, there are wayyyyy too many!! Everything’s Gonna Be Alright by Kenny Chesney and David Lee Murphy is a good motto kinda song that I love though. 🙂
Thanks for sitting down with us, Carrie! And thank you for all your hard work for Boutique Realty. We are so fortunate to have you on the team!
