Why Are You Passionate About the Work You Do?
I enjoy learning how different business models in the same sphere can be successful. You can see the sense of relief sellers have when their years of hard work are rewarded and how excited they are to continue growing their business with the assistance of our firm’s offerings. I enjoy helping the seller be comfortable throughout the process by building rapport to guide and answer questions.
