Justin Tate - REALTOR®
I've lived in New Mexico since 2012 where I relocated from San Diego when my Albuquerque based employer relocated me.
I'm no stranger to hard work as I'm originally from rural Kansas where I got my first paying job at the ripe old age of 10yrs old! My real estate life started off by working as a handyman (or more appropriately a "handykid") for a family friend that owned a couple dozen rental homes. After the landlord explained to me why he owned so much real estate, even at the age of 10yrs old I understood how powerful real estate can be.
Eventually I went off to college at Pittsburg State University where I majored in Construction Engineering and minored in Mathematics. This set me up for a career in project management for some of the largest commercial general contractors in the country. After awhile, my desire to get into real estate grew and I knew I had to make the career change. In 2016 I founded a real estate investment company where we flipped houses and bought rental properties. In 2020 I decided to take the next step and get my Associate Broker's license so I can not only buy and sell homes for myself, but now I can do it for others as well.
My favorite part about the real estate industry is all of the people I get to meet and I can't imagine ever working in any other industry ever again.
