We had the good fortune of connecting with Daiquiri Beebe and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Daiquiri, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
I don’t think that home buyers or sellers realize that real estate agents do not get paid unless a transaction closes. When we spend hours and days with buyers showing them house after house, we have spent our time, gas money to help them achieve their dreams, but if they do not end up purchasing a house with us, we have only lost time and money. Even when a transaction is in process if the deal falls through for some reason, we still don’t make anything. When we list a home for a seller and we spend our own money to hire a professional photographer and market the home in various ads. If the house doesn’t sell, we lose. Many clients don’t give it a second thought.What should our readers know about your business?
I am a full-time professional real estate agent in Huntsville, Texas. I put my clients first and enjoy making the lives of my clients and friends easier in the process. I am most proud of my clients’ trust in me and their satisfaction when a transaction is complete. I got to where I am today by working my tail off. As soon as I moved to Huntsville with my new Texas real estate license I tried everything possible to meet people and make sure they knew that I was a residential real estate agent ready to help them buy or sell a home. It has taken me three years to get to the point where people are regularly referring me to others and many people in my community now know that I am a Realtor. I have learned that the way you treat people is so important. No matter what you are doing, treating people with kindness and respect goes a long way. A real estate transaction can be a very emotional process for clients and for Realtors. Staying calm and being able to navigate the rough waters while maintaining professionalism and finding solutions has helped keep many real estate deals from falling apart. I want people to know that “I am what I am. What you see is what you get and if you really want to know what I think about something, just ask.” I truly love helping people and the feeling that lights up my day is when someone tells me that something I did made their life better.Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
In Huntsville, we have so much to do! Not in the modern sense where everyone wants to go shopping and eat at restaurants, honestly that gets old. In Huntsville we have so many community events that make our town special and they can keep you busy all year long. My favorite place to unwind is West Sandy Creek Winery, and I also love visiting Teysha Vineyard. A nice chat with a friend is a blast. We have many local and unique restaurants with creative dishes. 1836 is a fabulous steakhouse in an old home, Sam Houston’s Table is a wonderful cafe in Downtown and the City Hall Cafe has delicious Vinegar Pecan Pie. Other fun places include the plethora of museums in Huntsville, Sam Houston Memorial Museum, Walker County Museum, The Wynne Home, Oakwood Cemetary and more. During non-covid years we typically have festivals every month including the Herb Festival in March, the Fair on the Square in October, the Winter in the Park where snow is brought in for kids to play, multiple church festivals for the kids, car shows, parades, events at the City of Huntsville visitor statues. Don’t forget to take a good look at the ginormous Sam Houston Statue on I-45. We have the Huntsville State Park with many walking trails, camping and swimming. There are always some baby alligators on hand for visitors to hold. In addition to places to visit, Huntsville has a culture of serving. We have a multitude of service organizations who work tirelessly to meet needs and find ways to provide special things for the people of Huntsville. One such project is being worked on now by the Huntsville Junior Service League. We are working to install a special needs playground at one of our parks. We are reaching out to local businesses and citizens to help donate the funds. This is a project that will touch families for years to come and make life easier on parents.Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I am grateful to my children and husband for allowing me to be free with my time and chase all of my dreams.
