We loved our interview with this week’s guest, Alli Diaz! Alli has shown newer agents in our office what it takes to be successful in real estate...even when faced with a pandemic in her first year. As a newer to the business broker, she has the professionalism, work ethic, and positive mindset of a veteran agent. No wonder why she is still continuing to grow her business and make deals happen every day, despite the city-wide quarantine. Alli has understood from day one that building a real estate business is about nurturing relationships, as well as being the knowledge broker for her sphere, and she has applied that philosophy to her current business as she navigates our “new normal” due to Covid-19. We shared a ton of laughs on this episode - especially when we discovered Alli’s greatest fear! So sit back, turn it up, and enjoy! #anythingcanhappen ---------- Connect with Alli ➡️ Instagram: @allidiaz.realtor Website: allisondiaz.bairdwarner.com Email: email@example.com ---------- About Alli Diaz ➡️ A California native, I was drawn to Chicago in 2015 by its rich history and culture and impressive architecture. I love exploring this city and discovering it's neighborhoods' stories and especially love its many iconic vintage homes. I have always had a talent for entertaining and taking care of people. Before entering the world of real estate, I spent 15 years working in the hospitality industry in Chicago and San Francisco. Working alongside Michelin and James Beard awarded chefs, I learned the finer points of customer service and hospitality, and discovered a passion for making people happy. Now I use those skills to listen to my clients, figure out what their wants and dreams are, and help them find exactly what they are looking for. Before my career in hospitality, I got a BA in Spanish at the University of California, Sacramento while also studying interior design, art, and photography. I am bilingual and love good design. Aside from hospitality and vintage architecture, my passions include food, music, and travel. I can often be found exploring the many great restaurants in Logan Square, Humboldt Park, Wicker Park, Ukrainian Village, River North or the West Loop before going out for some music. I also enjoy practicing pottery and sewing, and perusing the many local antique malls for antique modern furniture and art.
