Day 78: Ahhhh…A Fresh New Year!

 

I’m starting out this new year…2017…with a renewed dedication to my life, my family, my work, and my blog. My personal storyboard has been centered around a set of “facts” about myself that I intend to challenge. This narrative that has become the story of me must defend itself much the same way a PhD candidate must defend her dissertation before a group of experts and critics. If arguments in favor of continuing on the same road are weak, out they go! A central piece of me that has already come under fire is the notion that I am not a morning person. Ever since I can remember, I have been the type to stay up late and grudgingly get out of bed at the last possible second in the morning. So what did I go and do? I signed up for a daily 5am motivational conference call, lol. I’m either turning a new leaf or insane. Time will tell.

I have been a busy little bee working with future buyers. So many wonderful people have come into my life since I ventured into the real estate business! I recently started working with a young man who is planning to buy his first home. His goal is to buy a property now for him to live in for a year or two and then turn it into a rental property and start building a real estate investment portfolio. I love seeing young people so motivated to take control of their finances this way! Very refreshing indeed.

Here is a sneak peek of one of the houses we have looked at to get him started in the world of real estate investing!

This is an adorable house in Clovis that is so perfect for a first time buyer. I have all my fingers and toes crossed that my lovely client gets to call this house his home in a few weeks!

My name is Erica Maranian and I am a Realtor at FresYes Realty. As a kid growing up in the Central Valley, I dreamt of someday seeing the world. I came to realize that the world had been in my backyard the entire time. Fresno is a short drive from some of the most majestic landmarks in the entire nation. We feed the world with our fertile land. Our culture is diverse. Our city is historic. Our people are friendly. I’m in the business of helping people. My prior experience as a banker, manager, underwriter, and analyst allowed me to develop expertise in being a good listener, uncovering needs and priorities, and seeing what is possible given the available financial resources. As a Realtor, I want to help you in your journey of buying or selling a home in the Central Valley. I attended California State University, Fresno (Go ‘Dogs!) and earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. I went on to earn an M.B.A. graduate degree, with honors, from Colorado State University’s prestigious graduate school of business…right from the comfort of my Fresno home. My passions include photography, contemporary literature, music, exploring the outdoors, and living a healthy lifestyle. I currently live in Clovis with my husband, Chris, and our two sons, Nickolas and Alexander. As a family, we live, play, and work right here in the Central Valley. My family and my heart are strongly rooted Fresno County. I would love to help you find a corner of this awesome place to call your own.
