HUSTLE FILE #50: Scott Petersen

NAME: Scott Petersen (NOT the Murderer)

OCCUPATION: Real Estate Agent

LOCATION: Denver, CO

WHAT’S YOUR HUSTLE: Helping clients buy and sell real estate in the Denver Metro Area and having fun while doing it. Too often the process is clichéd, stressful and transaction-based instead of being a fun and fulfilling experience. I compete against the stereotypical, aging Realtors on a daily basis for business. They are not tech-savvy, take themselves entirely too serious, and treat the transaction with an “us against them” mentality instead of taking a team approach to getting the deal done. I make it fun for all parties involved and the money seems to follow.

WHAT DOES YOUR HUSTLE MEAN TO YOU: I’m creating a niche here in Denver. I love what I do and dream (literally) about real estate all night and cannot wait to get my day started. The money is great. The hours are completely flexible. The people I work with are appreciative.

IF YOU COULD HAVE ONLY THREE TOOLS FOR YOUR HUSTLE, WHAT WOULD THEY BE: My Mat & Nat bag for my files, Internet Access and a murderous wit (just kidding).

A WORD OF ADVICE TO WANNABE HUSTLERS IN YOUR FIELD: Work your sphere of influence. Everyone you’ve ever met, reach out to them and earn their business. Everyone you meet, let them know you’re a real estate agent and that your capable, competent and hungry for their business. And finally, be passionate. Otherwise, what’s the point?!?!
