Today we’d like to introduce you to Tyesha Ward.
Hi Tyesha, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Let’s see how it all started. Well I have a background in Healthcare Management. While a great field to be in, it was not the best for a new mother that wanted to have the flexibility to spend time with her children. I didn’t want to have to miss important events and dates, and I didn’t want to be restricted on when I could travel so Real Estate is the path I took for a new full-time career. While my first start in the profession was in 2005, I did not focus on real estate full time until 2013. I was determined to be able to walk away from Corporate America permanently and become my own BOSS.
Fast forward today 2021, I am licensed in 3 states and soon to add one more. I’m licensed in Florida and Alabama as a Realtor and in Georgia as a Real Estate Broker. Real Estate is truly my passion. If I had to do it all over again, I would obtain my business degree and complete my Real Estate course right out of high school. Nevertheless, I’m here today servicing families across the globe giving them the luxury of having their piece of the pie in real estate. I am CEO and Founder of Opulent Living Realty Group (OLRG) and we are powered by Exp Realty. While the real estate industry may come with its ups and downs, I must say I couldn’t see myself doing anything else. I enjoy seeing the smile on my first-time homebuyers face at the preapproval process, the under contact process, the clear to close process, and the day of Closing.
In this industry, I’m not a salesperson, I’m a relational person. I strive to build relationships with each individual that hire me to be their Real Estate Professional. I deal with each of my clients on an individual level, never categorizing them into a current or past client. No deal will ever present the same but rest assured any obstacles or barriers we are faced with I’m always equipped to tackle them for my clients. My late grandmother always told me to lead with passion and the money will follow. I’m glad that I was able to hang on to her wisdom because it has helped me to lead a referral-based business over the past seven years. Past clients are truly my biggest walking billboard. I believe that once you plant the right seeds that tree will continue to bear good fruit. My business is rooted and planted on good soil and I enjoy seeing the fruits of my labor referral after referral.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Smooth road? Not at all. I failed my Florida real estate exam 4xs before nailing it. I relocated to Georgia with no license and it took me failing it 4xs before I got it right. But guess what there is just something about that perseverance. I kept my head in the game. Each time that I set out to get my license, I was struggling with personal matters but I kept fighting because I knew there was a greater blessing attached. I remember when I was set to take my Alabama exam, I was hit with let down and betrayal by people in the industry that I trusted but I had no time to cry about it. I kept going, walked into the testing site and came out a licensed Alabama Real Estate Agent on the first try in April 2020 and I ended the year by becoming a licensed Georgia Real Estate Broker in December 2020. In 2021, I proceeded to complete my pre licensing for California and I’m set to sit for the exam Feb. 2022. So I guess it’s safe to say I’m a fighter, I’m ambitious and I can’t be stopped by obstacles.
We’ve been impressed with Opulent Living Realty Group, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Opulent Living Realty Group is my real estate firm. We service Buyers, Sellers, and Investors in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama. We are known for educating our first time homebuyers on the entire home buying process from start to finish. What sets us apart from others is that we are a relationship building firm. Our clients walk away informed and inspired. What I’m most proud about brand-wise is that we deliver Real Estate services the Opulent Way and what we mean by that is that every client is giving a one on one Opulent Home Buying or Home Selling experience. No Opulent experience is the same because we encourage our clients to be their own type of Opulence. Opulent Living Realty Group has systems tailored for our clients to be successful in their real estate journey provided they follow the roadmap given to them. All roadmaps are tailored specifically for each client scenario so we stress to them to not compare one to the other. To all future Buyers, Sellers, and Investors Real Estate Opulence Awaits You!
Lord, lord, future plans! Where do I begin, well for starters my BIG plan is to focus more on real estate coaching and motivation speaking on the industry targeting new or aspiring agents because I see a HUGE need for that. Also, I’m planning to launch a Real Estate business wear line for both my Real Estate men and women. And last but not least OLRG Real Estate School. Big, big plans all of which will come to life with my hardwork and continued manifestation.
