Melissa Campobasso, a Real Estate Broker with Remax Destiny, joins us on The Real Estate Moguls Podcast to discuss her journey into the world of real estate.
A native of the northwest suburbs of Chicago, specifically Hoffman Estates, Melissa originally had a fascination with the legal field and began her career as a paralegal in a real estate office for a real estate attorney.
Though she had family in the real estate business, she never considered it as a career path until she was immersed in it for three years, working with real estate brokers and learning about short sales and foreclosures during the market crash of 2009.
It was her cousin, who is her broker owner at Remax, that ultimately influenced her to pursue a career in real estate. She saw how well Melissa understood and navigated the complicated and nuanced world of real estate contracts and encouraged her to pursue her license. Despite initial hesitation, Melissa decided to take the leap and join her cousin's office, and has never looked back.
Melissa emphasizes that starting in the industry during the market crash of 2009 was a unique experience that has greatly benefited her. She was able to learn about the most challenging aspects of real estate transactions, such as short sales and foreclosures, and has developed a deep understanding of the intricacies of the industry.
Additionally, starting at this time has given her a sense of perspective and appreciation for the hard work and effort that goes into succeeding in the industry, even in difficult market conditions.
Throughout her career, Melissa has also developed a passion for the more personable aspect of real estate, working with clients and helping them navigate the often-complicated process of buying or selling a home. She takes pride in educating herself about different properties and markets, and enjoys the constant learning and growth that comes with working in the industry.
