Elli Davis, Sales Representative, Royal LePage
Even as an elementary school teacher, Elli was constantly reading real-estate ads and going to open houses on weekends.
“I guess I always had a latent interest in real estate without even realizing it was there,” she says.
At a friend’s urging, she took the required courses. That was in 1983.
Within three weeks she had sold her first home.
By 1987, she’d been named the number one agent for Royal LePage and, although the company has quadrupled in size since she started out, Elli still maintains one of the very top positions within the company.
Elli has been able to achieve this level of success by following her golden rule: “I always service my customer as I would want to be serviced myself and I truly care about their largest asset as if it were my own money.”
By pushing herself out of her comfort zone, Elli has created a life that she loves – balancing her time between her inspiring career and her family.
“Take a chance, become uncomfortable,” she urges, “If you make yourself uncomfortable, it’s amazing how fast you become comfortable; and if you’re not, then go on and try something else. The minute I started real estate, I knew it was just perfect for me.”
