Hi! I am Tranett Brooks. I’m a full-time Real Estate Agent making a living from selling houses.
I’m also an Author, Speaker and Business Mentor to women in real estate.
But, most noteworthy, I play Fantasy Football (I’m good at it too! I crush my husband and his friends every year!) I am a die-hard Green Bay Packers fan (Sorry, but not sorry if this is not your team!) And, I am a Mickey Mouse fanatic! I love all things DISNEY – Pluto, Goofy, Donald, Minnie (you get where I’m going)!
When I was younger, I wanted to be a Veterinarian. I loved animals! I would have begged my mother to change my name to Doc McStuffins if she existed in the 80’s. As you can see, I am a long way from being an animal doctor. I went to college in 1994 “pretending” that I was majoring in Pre-Med. But, after Micro-Biology my first semester; I ultimately graduated with a degree in Marketing and Management.
I stumbled in the dark for nearly a decade after graduation, trying to find purpose and meaning for my life. (Seeking God for answers and direction on my career path.) I had tons of hits and misses; promising interviews, but no offers extended. Consequently, I cried many days after getting my hopes up for a “good” job with good pay and benefits (you know, that’s why they tell you to go to college in the first place)! The Lord had mercy on me (lol) and I finally landed a “real” job at a non-profit organization as a Program Director.
I was content with my salary position for about 3 years. But, thanks to late night infomercials promising how you could make TRILLIONS of dollars flipping houses with no money down; my contentment with working 9 to 5 for $37,000 a year was interrupted! Girlfriend, I was on my way to being a Trillionaire!
Fast forwarding to a land called “reality” – I have been a licensed Real Estate Agent for 10 years. My career as a Real Estate Agent allows me to enjoy a flexible schedule, unlimited income (much greater than $37k) and the FREEDOM to spend the time doing the things I love most in my life. I basically got the courage to “hire” myself! (YOU GO GIRL!)
