Hey Y’all! I’ve been busy! LOL
I really don’t want to sound like a broken record, but I have been staying highly occupied while trying to build up my new business. From establishing my name as a real estate agent to marketing, to implementing systems and processes to make it successful.
Some of that is starting to pay off. I was able to close one sale each in January, February, and March.
Then I had a friend who was planning on listing their home when school ended, but decided to list it in March. We got it under contract fairly quickly, so they went out & put a new construction home under contract.
In the same week, a neighbor asked me to show them a couple of homes in a neighborhood closer to his family. They made an offer on one of them that was accepted and listed their home, too.
So, April found us closing on my (now former) neighbor’s house and their new home. This allowed me to rank in the top 10 for April!
Now that we are in May, I have two more closings coming up, signed two listings yesterday evening, and may possibly pick up two more listings. That is on top of working with two pre-approved buyers.
I’m really enjoying it all. It’s a big shift from my former life in oil and gas.
Well, enough on this for now. Let me know what you think in the comments.
Business – Open For Business as Clint C. Galliano, REALTOR®
As I have alluded to in the last few articles I have written, I have started my new career as a real estate salesperson licensed in the state of Louisiana.
My wife and I made the decision that since I loved real estate so much, why not jump in full time? So, I attended an online real estate school during the pandemic lockdown, then passed the test slightly less than a month after starting.
This new career is also a little out of my comfort zone because I am reaching out to people proactively to talk. Not something I have done on a regular basis outside of a close circle of friends. Time to grow. Time to expand my capabilities.
I am, little by little, becoming a more public person. I have doubled my Facebook friends list and continue to add people. I am making videos and live streams, (though not very good ones – LOL), for open houses and putting them out there.
I am enjoying this!
Why Keller Williams?
A few people have asked me why I chose the local Keller Williams team. I have a few reasons. The main one is that I am a fan of Gary Keller. I started reading his books when I began to educate myself on real estate investing. I like his approach to things. A lot of it dovetails with my own philosophy. I also like the way the company has and is adapt(ed/ing) to the changing world with the use of technology. KW also has some of the best training out there.
Then there is the family aspect of things. Family is one of the guiding principles of the company. Everyone here is very supportive and will do just about anything to help you.
And, on top of that, the company has a profit-sharing structure that is designed to ensure the long-term life of the company in addition to providing you and your beneficiaries with profit-sharing income.
So if you are interested in joining the Keller Williams family, get in contact with me here.

Personal – I Passed!
As I have stated in previous articles, since leaving the oilfield I intended to move more into real estate. Part of working towards that goal is to become a real estate agent.
I began attending an online Louisiana Real Estate Salesperson course and successfully completed it over the course of a month while taking a week vacation during the same time period.
I have now completed the next step required to become an agent by passing the state and national portions of the exam.
I will begin onboarding next week with a local office of a national franchise.
That’s all for now. I just wanted to let everyone know about my progress.
