Dustin and Carmen celebrate decades of "two hard working nice dads"!
Here's our real estate story (the short version!):
In 1997, six years after we graduated from SPU with business marketing and finance degrees, Carmen called letting me know he had decided to move back from the east coast and begin his professional career and raising his family here in the Pacific Northwest.
Already six years into my (Dustin) real estate career with RE/MAX, I was busy and blessed with more business and referrals than I could handle. I knew if I wanted balance in my life and a day off with family, something had to change.
That is when Carmen called with his news. When he asked me to circulate his resume, since there was no internet for job hunting back then, I gave an answer that still makes me smile. I said NO. I will not. BUT, I have a better idea. I offered him a partnership with me as a buyer's agent. He reminded me he knew nothing about real estate in his always honest and humble response. I let him know that was all teachable, and I wanted him because of his character and work ethic. To do this day, I've not been involved with anyone with more integrity and desire for customer satisfaction.
Because of our clients' trust and faith in our abilities, we've reached personal and business milestones we only dreamed of over 20 years ago. We truly love what we do! Thanks for reading. Dustin lists ALL homes and Carmen works with ALL our buyers!
