Jackie Youngblood does… And sells a ton of homes doing it! This week I interview Jackie Youngblood of Keller Williams Tampa Properties. Jackie works in a very interesting and specific niche. If you haven’t guessed from the headline, she has mastered the nudist/clothing optional market. You have recognize Jackie as the host of TLC’s “Buying Naked” TV show. As a Florida REALTOR® and fellow nudist, it only made sense for Jackie to combine thing two things she loves the most! In this episode, Jackie shares her story how she went from a part time agent to having that “ah-ha” moment when she realized that focusing on her niche would be the best thing for her business. She has never looked back! The success from focusing on her niche had turned into local publicity then turned into and opportunity to get her own TV show deal with TLC. Jackie’s passion and playful personality make her the perfect host for the show and you can sense her passion about real estate and the nudist life style in this interview. So don’t worry about putting on your clothes to listen to this episode, just sit back, relax and enjoy!

With Pasco County being the Nudist Capital of North America, this has been and continues to be a rewarding “out of the box” experience”. Jackie received her real estate licenses in 2004 and joined a small real estate company in Land O’ Lakes. When she saw signs of a “shift” in the market in 2007 and 2008, Jackie revised her goals and, in order, to reach those goals, she placed her licenses with Keller Williams Tampa Properties. After moving her real estate licenses to Keller Williams Tampa Properties, Jackie began building The Jackie Youngblood Group....

So Matthew Slutsky built it! This week I interview Matthew Slutsky of BuzzBuzzHome. Matthew is the president and founder of the company that is taking the new  home world by storm. So he built it… And they came! In droves… It started with an idea. Then came the long hours combined with a lot of hard work. It wasn’t easy for Matthew and his team at BuzzBuzzHome, but he will tell you it has been worth it. (And when you see what they have built, I’m sure you will agree!) In this episode, Matthew shares his successes and some of his failures as he launched his game changing innovation for the  new home sales world. Matthew and I discuss what it takes to launch your own business  and how he has stayed strong  even when things got tough. This interview is a must for anyone who is thinking about starting their own business, or is thinking about going deep with their niche. (And for anyone who loves The Niche Agent… Which is most of you I assume 🙂 ) Matthew shared this amazing quote that I think will resonate with most of you! “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” – Calvin Coolidge So check out the episode and check out what they are up to over at BuzzBuzzHome!
