CRE #168: Ascending the Real Estate Ladder

Before hitting the age of 30, Nik Boone, the Broker and Owner of Ascend Real Estate & Property Management, has gained over 10 years of experience in the industry. His goal is to offer the best service possible to all clientele, from the first-time buyer or renter, to the experienced investor. With everything he has accomplished, understandably, Nik is a 30 Under 30 Honoree for 2020.

Every year, REALTOR® Magazine selects 30 of the brightest young minds to honor with their 30 Under 30 distinction. Calibrate Real Estate Podcast Host, Kyle Malnati, was honored with this award in 2012 and we have made a point to interview as many 30 Under 30 Honorees as we can. It takes a smart, driven, and hungry person to win this award and we are honored to share their experience with our podcast audience.

Being a rental owner himself, Nik is familiar with the needs of the landlord and the tenant through first-hand experience, and he joins the Podcast this week to share what he has learned in his real estate journey. He shares his best tips and tricks to break into rental investing, making the most of your investment, and growing the property ladder. As Nik says, “My life philosophy is leveraging my time – pay the expert for the expert’s work.”

But Captain “T” did not start out in life with any special advantages. In fact, being born and raised in segregated South Carolina meant that the difficulties he faced growing up were many. But realizing his aspiration to become a pilot and becoming the first African American from the state to be accepted into the prestigious United States Air Force Academy was just the beginning of a pattern of successes in a life that extended far beyond its origins.

Carol Poore, Ph.D., MBA, joins the Calibrate Podcast this week to talk about her newest book, Strategic Impact. Entrepreneurs and business owners can easily get stuck in the weeds of day-to-day business and forget to create a long-term vision. But as Dr. Poore tells us, this is a huge missed opportunity. Taking time to recalibrate your company’s focus and mission will help strengthen the foundation of all other aspects of your business.
