Grant Lopez, 28, used to daydream about what major success in real estate would be like. He doesn’t have to wonder any more. Lopez has developed an extremely wide sphere, reaching clients of all ages and life stages, “I’ve put clients into their first homes, and as a lot of my oldest clients would say, their last homes,” he says. That ability to connect meaningfully with people also got him elected, at just 21, to the city council of Converse, Texas. These feats demonstrate that even someone who struggles daily with innate shyness and social anxiety can reach the loftiest goals. He and his team focus on helping buyers interested in new construction who also have a home to sell. “I specialize in removing the fear and complexity out of simultaneous real estate transactions,” he says. The empathy he brings to his work, no doubt, drives his ability to get results.
