Having time to meet her kids for lunch was one of the reasons Realtor® Brandy Grell chose real estate or, as she says, her son chose it for her.
Real estate has allowed her to work as much as she desires without someone else dictating her hours.
Now, with years of experience, one piece of advice Brandy would give her younger self is to buy two homes with the sale of the first and rent one out. Then repeat. And repeat.
Perhaps those homes would be Spanish or contemporary styles, Brandy’s favorites depending on where they are built.
“I am a bit of a minimalist,” says Brandy, who recommends Snow Cap White paint when darker woods are present in a home or Perfect Greige for homes that boast white trim.
A home staging tip Brandy shares is to clean the whole home. “Spotlight the home using minimal furniture in neutral tones and set the table, bar and kitchen areas like a dinner party with colors that match the season,” adds Brandy, who as a child had her sights set on being the hostess of a large cruise ship. She attributes that idea to watching too much Fantasy Island in her younger years.
A self-proclaimed outdoor bird lover, Brandy also enjoys spending time on or near water, watching videos of what new cars are in Dubai, and watching subtitled movies.
