Today we’d like to introduce you to Celeste Huss.
Hi Celeste, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today.
I got started in the real estate industry back in 2003 when I started as a mortgage loan officer at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage in the Denver area. I worked with some great people and learned a lot about the mortgage industry and process.
My husband and I were also involved in fixing and flipping distressed properties when we lived in Denver. We loved working together and seeing a dilapidated home move through the improvement stages.
We had great success in each endeavor and could use our skills to do a lot of the work since my husband is a paint contractor. Through the process of fixing and flipping homes, I learned the skills of staging a home to create appeal and maximize value. Staging a newly renovated home was my favorite! Creating pockets of emotion in a home is what creates a positive experience for potential buyers.
In 2013, we moved from Denver back to the Logan, Utah area where I grew up. All of these real estate experiences (along with having grown up in a construction family), helped me make the decision to get my real estate license in 2014. I have used the knowledge from previous experiences to become a respected and well-rounded real estate agent.
I have worked in residential and commercial real estate and love helping my clients achieve their goals.
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?
The journey has certainly not been smooth sailing, but I wouldn’t trade the knowledge I have learned along the way.
As an agent, there is always an opportunity to learn and grow from each transaction. I have learned to work with many different kinds of people and personalities through unique circumstances.
You learn a lot as you navigate property line disputes, easements, encroachments, financing, and inventory challenges. I am always eager to learn and will continue to learn and grow as an agent to stay at the top of my game.
As you know, we’re big fans of Celeste Huss – North Realty. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
I am an associate broker with North Realty and have been in the real estate industry since 2003 and an agent since 2014. I serve buyers and sellers of real estate in the Logan/Cache County areas.
I work with buyers and sellers on both the residential and commercial sides of real estate. I have become a successful and well-respected agent by representing my client’s best interests with competence, experience, and compassion.
I work hard to promote their best interest with industry knowledge, honesty, and loyalty so they can accomplish their goals. The bottom line is that I care about my clients and the experience they have while working with me.
Purchasing or selling real estate can be as stressful as it is exciting. After all, it is one of the biggest financial decisions many people will make in their lifetime. That’s why I am my client’s biggest advocate and negotiator to minimize stress and give them peace of mind.
I love staying in contact with my clients and I am proud of the referral business I have created by being their real estate expert. I work hard to stay at the top of my game by continuing my education and learning from industry experts.
In terms of your work and the industry, what are some of the changes you are expecting to see over the next five to ten years?
I feel the real estate industry will continue to evolve over time, but I don’t see real estate agents being replaced.
Consumers will continue to learn from online resources, but they seem to gravitate to real estate professionals to take the final steps to buy or sell a house when the time is right. There are 5 reasons I don’t see this changing anytime soon. They are frequency, uniqueness, size, complexity, and risk.
Most people are not constantly buying and selling real estate and so understanding the nuances of a real estate transaction in all its complexities is not something most consumers are willing to go it alone. They are big decisions and consumers want the help and guidance a real estate professional can give them.
