REALTOR® Magazine 30 Under 30 Questions & Answers, by Kyle Malnati (Madison Commercial Properties)

I’m excited to announce that I just applied for a national award called “30 Under 30” through REALTOR® Magazine –

Over the next several days, I’m going to post my answers to the questions posed by REALTOR® Magazine. 

REALTOR® Magazine 30 Under 30 Question #1: Why did you decide to obtain your real estate license?

Answer: I’ve always had a passion for investments and decided to get my degree in Finance. I was introduced to real estate classes during my junior year at University of Wyoming, but real estate became a reality through my wife’s cousin Matt Ritter (30 under 30 class ‘05). Matt saw my strong work ethic and that real estate fascinated me. I earned an internship with his commercial real estate team when I was a senior. They sold apartments which really intrigued me.  Two weeks after graduation, I started as the transaction manager for their team. I studied nights and weekends after work to pass my license exam. I started on the “ground floor,” and my goal was to climb the brokerage ladder over a 5-year period. ~ Kyle Malnati, Madison Commercial Properties – Madison & Co. Properties
