We had the good fortune of connecting with Florida Palmore and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Florida, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I come from a family of hard working people. The legacy is so rich and I knew I wanted to add to it one day. I knew my name ment something. I knew God put me here for a purpose. There’s a quote I love by Jim Rohn that says “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you will fall into someone else’s life plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” The first time I read that quote it was as if he was speaking directly to me. So I knew I didn’t want to miss out on life and my dreams, building someone else’s.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My title is Realtor® but that’s just another way to spell Entrepreneur. When I set out to become a Realtor® I knew I would need to partner with the right brokerage. A lot of people choose brokerages based on where their friends go or who has the best splits but chose it based on where my goals would be met. I partnered with Rogers Healy & Associates. I wont go into all the awards the company has been awared, because we don’t have that much time, but I will say RHA is one of the top brokerages in the country. The Rogers Healy Companies consist of Rogers Healy & Associates Real Estate, Rogers Healy & Associates Commercial Real Estate, Healy Property Managment, and Healy Global Real Estate + Realocation. It’s literally a one-stop-shop for everything real estate and moving across the globe.
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.
I like going places where there’s potential for networking so I think we’d have to get a round of golf in for sure. Maybe even do a little traveling from Houston to Dallas and Austin. I really enjoy trying new things but if I had to pick a familiar place I’d say Pappas Bros Steakhouse. I know this doesn’t sound super exciting but I’m a simple guy.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
If I could give a shoutout or recognition to anyone, it would have to be Jesus Christ. He has strategically placed each and every person on my path. You see each person that you come in contact with, whether for a brief moment or for years, plays a part in the blueprint that is your life. Each trial and each victory plays an important part in your story. So thank everyone for their part but ultimately thank you JESUS!
