Michele Grimes

As a salon owner and cosmetology educator for 25 years, Michele wanted to add a flexible second career. She chose Residential Real Estate Sales.

Michele was always interested in Real Estate. So once her youngest child graduated high school, she went back to school herself — to The Real Estate School. She wanted a flexible second career that could become full time after she retired from cosmetology.

Because she loved working with people already, a career in residential real estate felt like a natural fit.

“I love helping people find their homes!” Michele said. “I stay in touch with them and enjoy seeing their before and after photos.”

Most importantly, Michele didn’t have to give up her salon while she developed her real estate business. She continues to work at her salon four days a week. In her downtime, she researches houses and schedules appointments with her clients.

Only a couple of years into her second career, Michele has already found success. “I wake up every day with the opportunity to happily work on my goals in a career that I enjoy. I have a healthy balance of family, friends and work, and am setting myself up for the future.”

Advice from Michele:

“Stay dedicated, organized and consistent. Most importantly, have good people skills!”
