About Jaunice Rufai
I'm a mother, wife, mamapreneur, real estate agent and investor with a genuine love and interest for the real estate industry, with a commitment to excellence in customer service as well as possess an in depth of experience.
As a native Washingtonian growing up in Prince George's County as well as parts of the District of Colombia, I've seen first hand how real estate values can increase overtime in areas that once were considered non-desirable to desirable. Living in this area most of my life provides me with a working knowledge of the plethora of neighborhoods in the DMV.
What is your Hustle (Business)?
As a sales agent, our brokerage Green Home Realty focuses on neighborhoods in Prince George's and Charles County Maryland where we are located. However, we have licensed agents in Maryland, D.C. and Virginia.
Who/What inspired Your Hustle?
My mother is an inspiration to me as well as my grandmother. Both women are and were entrepreneurs born and raised in the District of Columbia. I witnessed these women hustle daily to help provide a wonderful experience growing up as a native Washingtonian in Prince George's County. These women have owned multiple properties that have provided them with a significant ROIs.
How are you “Hustling up” Mamapreneurs to the next level?
Investing in real estate is my way of assisting manapreneurs with positively impacting the growth of their portfolios. Your portfolio is incomplete if you do not own real estate.
What strategies worked or are working for your business?
Having a prepared buyer as well as informed sellers are vital in this current seller's market. Making sure each buyer is preapproved and prequalified are vital when submitting offers. I have the great fortune of working with a group of professionals that provide a plethora of services needed when selling and purchasing homes.
I approach each client with principles learned while serving as a project manager. Ensuring and facilitating all aspects of a home sell and/or purchase. I believe that each client deserves to feel that their agent is available to them and is attentive to their needs while ensuring that all transactions are done in accordance with all applicable laws, process and procedures.
