And Krisstina could attest the same for herself! These two really signify what it means to work hard and how far your work ethic can (and will!) take you.

Favorite Moments:

“Everyone is interested in getting into [real estate], so we talked about a few strategies that aren’t necessarily well advertised… we help our clients move through those important things so that they can live a life they want to live…” – Trent LaMonica ([2:33]).

“I can’t help but feel there is a significant amount of pressure to get into real estate…I feel that some people aren’t necessarily prepared for the good, the bad, and the ugly. With any asset, with any investment, clarity, and transparency are critical to getting there… You need to have advocates.” Trent LaMonica ([21:45]).
