We had the good fortune of connecting with Victor A. Flores and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Victor A., how do you think about risk?
I love the anxiety that comes with risk taking. Stepping out of your comfort zone and doing something that can only launch you forward is something I encourage everyone to practice on a daily basis. There is no losing with risk taking. Either you get ahead or learn not to take this path again. Take the yoga class you been eyeing, go to the coffee shop and order that weird pink drink, call the clients that you want to have not the ones you already have! Personally if I didn’t take risk in my life or career I would still be working at some 5-9 hating my situation. My whole career is based on risk taking and more important, learning from it.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I dabble in a little bit of everything with real estate. My background is project management in residential construction which I find myself revisiting from time to time. But mainly these days my time is consumed by being a real estate advisor in the Houston area. I’m also very exited to be getting my hands in the beauty/ spa industry. As random as this sounds – its something I’ve wanted to do for some time. So far everything has been going extraordinarily well, even with a global pandemic. I’m laying the foundation for these products down now so it will be something i will be advertising in the near future. Although I’m a very driven person I think the main characteristic that sets me apart is my attention to detail. I know what I want how I want it and I don’t put my name behind it unless how I envisioned it. My father always instilled in me that the work we provide speaks for its self, no matter how big or small the project you always give it 110%. When it comes to my brand I would like for people to know that you’re always going to get the same level of service whether it’s a multi million property or your first two bedroom condo.
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.
If I had a friend visiting from out of town, for, say a weekend trip (I love getting away and traveling for just the weekend!) I would highly recommend staying at the J.W. Marriot downtown. They have some of the loveliest staff there, and the brunch is out of this world! We would start the day with some shopping in the galleria, because nobody likes being outside in the summer heat. One of my absolute favorite restaurants is 51 Fifteen located inside of Saks. The service and menu are spectacular. I would recommend starting off with the beef tips to share. I love that they also have a bar downstairs in the men’s department, so you don’t have to go too far to enjoy yourself! One thing about Houston that I love is that there is always something to do at night. I enjoy taking friends to fundraisers, runway shows, or catching an opera at the Wortham. Sundays are always a good day to lounge out and tan, and maybe even recover from the night before!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I think a person in any situation is only as good as the team behind them. I have a great support group that I surround myself with. One of my biggest supporters, friend, colleague, is Julie Lehmann. She is the Co-Founder at Winslow Law Firm, PLLC Select Title and my go to for a lot of things. She is constantly challenging me to push myself. Big shout out to her and her team!
