We had the good fortune of connecting with Sabrina Anh Le and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sabrina Anh, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
This is a great question because everyone decides to get into the profession of selling real estate for many different reasons. While real estate has helped me achieved many of my personal goals and continues to do so, it also impacts the surrounding communities I have ties with in many tremendous ways. From being able to speak with friends and families who share their fear of not meeting the qualifications to purchase a home, it’s great being able to educate individuals and provide a sense of hope. The truth is that home ownership is really the American Dream. Whether it is to build generational wealth by passing down real estate or being a first generation first time homebuyer, one thing is for sure, if you can dream it then you can achieve it.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I’m sure anyone can agree that starting a business is never an easy journey. Entrepreneurship is never easy. Not only are you on the path of building your brand, most of us start out without even being sure of what we want our image to look like. Branding comes over time, changes over time, and develops over time. Truthfully, till this day, I am still on the journey of figuring out my brand. The only thing I have figured out at this stage of my real estate career is who I am trying to attract. That is those individuals who are looking for more out of life. A lot of people may wonder how this relates to being a realtor and lets be honest, purchasing a home is a huge step. Some people feel like this may not be in the cards for them because renting is all they know. Some people don’t know where to start , and those are the individuals I want to touch. I want them to know that homeownership is possible, no matter how you feel your credit looks or what your situation is, there is always a way. All you need to do is ask for help.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my best friend were visiting the area and I wanted to show them the BEST time, I would take them to Montrose or Mid-town for the most picturesque photos at Secret Garden and then Bravery Hall for delicious food. It’s hard to say because Houston is not known for any big attractions. Houston is a great place to move to live a more sustainable lifestyle while growing in your career or business.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
In this real estate journey, the biggest shoutout I can give are to my family, boyfriend, and most importantly my clients. Many friends and family know that this real estate journey happened as a result of the way Covid rapidly spreaded. From going to college and taking classes I felt were meaningless and only to make my parents happy, I jumped from many part time waitressing jobs. Everyday I wanted something more out of life. I thought to myself, there has to be a bigger purpose and there must be something I can really enjoy doing. My mind was set on real estate for a while but there was never really a right time. As Covid cases continued to rise, the restaurant industry slowed down. There were long days working 6 hours only to come home with $20 or less. At that point, it didn’t make sense financially. Ultimately, my boyfriend Carlos encouraged me to jump start my real estate career and continued to always support me and push me. Till this day he is my number one supporter. As my story continues to grow, everyone starts having a purpose in playing a part in my success. My family, past/future/and current clients, thank you.
