We had the good fortune of connecting with Danniel Abuloc and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Danniel, what role has risk played in your life or career?
In my experience, it’s essential to take risks in your life. Without taking risks, how can we achieve the goals for the life we’ve always imagined. Many people are terrified to take risks, but the courageous ones will overcome any challenges that comes their way. And in doing so, I’ve found that you go far beyond what you thought were your limitations. I believe it’s crucial to challenge yourself to achieve growth.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am a licensed realtor in the Dallas – Fort Worth Metroplex, and my business focuses on people looking to buy a new home or sell their current. Being born and raised in Dallas, this is my home for 26 years, and throughout that time, I’ve come to love this fantastic city. Taking time to discover the many hidden treasures that are waiting to be discovered here in Dallas. I hope to provide authentic and honest service to my clients while helping them find their forever home in this beautiful city. Coming from an immigrant family, I believe it’s vital to give every family the same opportunities that my parents provided me growing up. Every person deserves to live in their dream home, and it’s my passion to help them find it.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Oh, wow. That’s a great question. There are so many things to do and see in Dallas, and I would start by showing them the different cultures that add color to our city. As for an itinerary? Monday, we’d spend the day downtown and definitely grab some Mike’s Chicken near the city. They have the best fried-chicken in Dallas. Hands down. Then we’d spend some time visiting the major tourist spots that Dallas has: JFK Memorial Museum, Reunion Tower, and so forth. On Tuesday, I’ll take them to Arlington to tour around our sports stadiums. Then finish the day at Six Flags with dinner at Texas Live. We’ll take the day trip down to Waco, TX, and visit Magnolia Silos on Wednesday. While we’re there, we’ll have to be sure to get their baked cupcakes. And of course, I can’t forget to give them a tour of my alma mater Baylor University. After all of that, we have to end the day by getting pizza and drinks at Shorty’s. On Thursday, we’d spend the day in North Dallas near the Colony and Frisco Legacy Area. Show them the great shopping centers they have, then we’d finish the night off with live music and food at Legacy Hall. And finally, on Friday, we’ll start off the day with Brunch at OddFellows. Then spend some time checking out the fantastic Bishop Arts District. You can’t do Dallas properly without catching a Mavs or Stars game at AAC. And after their win, we’d wrap up the week in Dallas celebrating in Deep Ellum.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Honestly, there are so many people I can attribute my success to, and all of them were such a deep and meaningful part of my journey so far. I’ve had the fortune of meeting exceptional and extraordinary people who have made a long and lasting impression in my life. But, if I had to choose just one person, I need to recognize or dedicate this to my mother.. She came to this country when she was 16 years old as a nurse from the Philippines. And now, she’s her own self made business owner, and she strives to achieve her goals daily. Each day I watched as she worked hard to support our family here and in the Philippines, and I hope to help others as much as she has my entire life.
