Meet Danesha Ritzberg of Ritzberg Realty International in Smyrna

Today we’d like to introduce you to Danesha Ritzberg.

Danesha, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I’d been working jobs and could never keep any of them or I’d quit. I wasn’t happy and I decided I needed something more fulfilling. I decided to get into real estate after failing the real estate exam five times. I didn’t give up. I worked for a couple of brokerages to begin with and got no help so I quit real estate. I decided to come back but this time does my research on which brokerage to choose. I decided on Keller Williams and it was the best decision of my life. I worked hard every day not making a penny. I lost my job and I told myself God is telling me something so I decided not to ever apply for a job again. I went ten months without making a penny and God provided all my needs. I don’t know how I would have gotten the money every month to take care of my needs without my faith. I knew if I got up every day and did what I was supposed to do God would make sure I was straight and that he did. I had to live with my friend, my son and I. Now I own my brokerage and I’m married with twins and a stepson. So I would say it all worked out. And now I’m laser focused because God told me that Ritzberg Realty will be a household name sooner than later and I believe that. P.S. I’ve not ever applied for a job again. 😊

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
No, it hasn’t been a smooth road at all. I thought that I’d wake up every day with a $10K check in my hand. Boy was I wrong. The hardest part is staying focused, on task and motivated when you have free range to do WHATEVER you want.
