We’ve read so much about your recent achievements and will talk more about those later. We love to know how people started on their leadership journey… where did yours begin?
My leadership skills evolved through YPN and WCR early in my career. Without the referrals of YPN, I would not have been able to continue in real estate during the downturn. When I initially came in out of college, all of my friends were looking for jobs or going back to school. I had a very limited pool of clients so I had to be creative and quick. Being able to handle the many areas of both organization prepared me for a strong business in sales and evolved into a brokerage. I operate my brokerage identical to the organizations I've led. Each of the those organizations achieved outstanding performance awards nationally. I am doing the same in structuring and operating my brokerage.
As you look back, tell us about your favorite failure. Perhaps it was a risky move that didn’t pay off, a failed project or hire... How did you address it? Did you ask for help?
Common sense isn’t so common!
In honor of Women’s History Month, we want to celebrate and highlight the achievements of women making HERstory in Real Estate. What advice do you have for women who are ready to make their mark?
Youngest to receive the Houston “REALTOR of the Year” Award.
In 2020, you acquired Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices franchise in Houston, Texas. Curry becomes the first 100% African American owner of a Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices in the world.
Quote from press release:
Curry encourages people to think bigger and to always press forward. "I refused to be defined by walls, and so should you," says Curry. "In the words of Babe Ruth, 'It's hard to beat a person who never gives up.' I always tell aspiring entrepreneurs - you can achieve anything in life if you put your mind to it. More than 83% of my business has never looked like me; that has never deterred me from achieving my goals or business aspirations. I have always known that I wanted to own a real estate franchise even though the majority of owners I saw didn't look like me. It never stopped me from seeing where I wanted to be."
What is your most treasured advice from a mentor?
Justina, her Grandma 9 Juniors names after her…. WOW!
