The Right Fit

Lauren Freedman, 28, developed two passions growing up: fitness and real estate. She played basketball, rode horses, and admired her mother, who worked as a real estate appraiser. Freedman graduated from high school early and began training to become an appraiser. At 18, she bought a condo (her mother cosigned) and handled renovations herself. When she was ready to sell, “I hired an agent to list it, but I basically did all the work,” Freedman says. “I wanted to show it and point out upgrades, and that’s when I realized I wanted to be an agent.” About two years later, she got into sales, and now she uses her ongoing passion for fitness to help build her client base. “I have great success at the gym,” she says. “I’m there so much and everyone knows me [and what I do], so it works for my business.”
