Meet Nicholas Gerhardt, a prominent figure in the east coast real estate sector who was born and raised in Maryland. Gerhardt is a real estate agent as well as an investor and business owner. Just following the 2007 market crash, Nicholas Gerhardt started on the path to becoming a realtor. His eyes were opened by the impact, which revealed that realtors could still generate income even during difficult times. When Gerhardt came to this realization, he realized that sales were his true calling, and the rest was history.
Most people that break into the real estate world are primarily involved solely for monetary gain; however, for Nicholas Gerhardt, that isn’t the case. His genuine love for the industry stems from being able to help thousands of professionals, individuals, and families find their dream home or space that fits their everyday needs. With his deeply instilled passion for the game, it’s the mental grind of it all that keeps Gerhardt striving to be the best, and it’s because of that passion and drive he’s been able to scale his way to the top of the east coast real estate hierarchy.
Nicholas Gerhardt’s advice to aspiring entrepreneurs is a collection of things, but primarily to stay focused on your goal and to never give up. Entrepreneurship is a stressful and challenging road to go down that not many are equipped to handle. To break through the others trying to stake their claim as an entrepreneur, you have to have a never quit attitude and be ready to keep going even after you’ve been kicked down repeatedly. He also advises people to avoid the outside noise like the plague because it’ll only help to keep you down. “Surround yourself with solid people. Find mentors and love what you do. Set goals and crush them.” On the personal side, whether it’s a professional relationship or intimate, always be kind, cool, calm, and collected. “Listen before speaking, especially when talking with mentors. Ask questions and stay humble every day is a learning process.” Follow Nicholas Gerhardt on Instagram here.
