We had the good fortune of connecting with Esmeralda Vargas and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Esmeralda, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
There were a couple of reasons why I decided to start a business in real estate but mainly for the freedom and flexibility to work my own schedule and be able to help others. For years, I thought I wanted to practice law and I pursued my degree in Criminology while working in the legal field. I worked at a law firm focused on government collection matters then at the District Attorney’s office working with Child Protective Service cases. I began my real estate journey in 2015, but put it on hold because I wasn’t ready to take that leap of faith. It’s been a long, tough road but I learned a lot of valuable lessons along the way. Now I know that Real Estate and helping people is my Real passion.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am a Real Estate Agent here in Dallas/Fort Worth. I am passionate about helping people make their dreams a reality. Im happy to be able to help someone with possibly their biggest financial decision of their life. I know it’s a big responsibility, which is why I strive to provide my clients with a home buying or selling process as smooth and stress free as possible!
What I’m most excited for is to meet people and build lifelong relationships. I have already met a lot of great people and colleagues. The biggest lesson that Ive learned along the way is to always push through and never give up. Not everyone will support you and that’s ok. Success starts with your mindset. Success is hard work, perseverance, consistency, learning, sacrifice but most of all love for what you do! I like to think of this quote “If you do what you love, then you’ll never work a day in your life.” Real estate is hard work, but fun and worth it!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well I’m from Fort Worth, so I would take them to Sundance Square and maybe have quick brunch at Yolk. Then at night time to the Stockyards and a couple of bars around the area and Billy Bobs if there’s a concert going on. I love live music! Another day I would take them to a winery or brewery and then to Meseros in Clearfork to have dinner and some good drinks out by the patio!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would love to first and foremost, give a huge shoutout to my husband. He is my #1 supporter. I wouldn’t be doing what I do if it weren’t for his unconditional support and motivation.
My parents and grandparents have played a huge role in motivating me also to do what I love.
Last, two amazing friends Alma and Laura. They uplift and empower me every day.
It’s a blessing to be around people who truly want to see me succeed and support me no matter what. I just want to say THANK YOU!
