We had the good fortune of connecting with Will Ervin and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Will, what do you attribute your success to?
After the Most High, I would say the support of my family. Being the owner of 2 businesses, requires a lot focus and time. I need the support of my family. For them to understand my job does not have set work hours or a consistent schedule is very important. It allows me to do what needs to be done. To me they are the most important factor behind any success I experience. For my brand, I would attribute to my communication skills. Being able to talk to people and build rapport has allowed me to grow the brand.
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?
As the owner of Ervin Properties and TLT Estates Group, my goal is to assist individuals with buying, selling, renting or leasing property in Houston, Texas. I have created the two businesses to help either investors, homeowners or buyers. I try to stand out with the attention I provide to each customer. I make myself available and easy to talk to so the customer is comfortable. This approach does cause challenges as of right now, I am a solo Investor/Realtor. For many customers, they prefer to work with someone like myself cause it gives them direct contact. Many customers like to call or email have have their question answered right away. Not delayed by hours or days because it has to go through the channels of dealing with big company agents.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
For anyone visiting Houston, Texas, you have understand we have a unique culture. Many people are familiar with barbeque from Texas. That a staple when it comes to food. Anyone visiting would have to try one of the many BBQ restaurants we have. After providing the body with nutrients, depending on what season you visit determines what event you are able to enjoy. The Houston Rodeo is one of the biggest events for the city. We also have 3 major sports teams and even men and women’s soccer. The night life is also something to experience. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have mentioned before how important my family has been to me. When I think of inspiration or encouragement, they are the only factor. I want to make them proud. The things I do with business, I do to make them happy. To provide for them. I want my family to experience the growth and success of the business with me. Since I lost my grandmother a few years ago, many things I do have been in dedication to her. Knowing how much she believed in me, I know her spirit is guiding me.
