Why Real Estate?

Hi. I’m Alexander Keyes. Today is my 31st birthday, and it marks a new beginning.  I am an artist. I studied studio art at the graduate level, and I have been making a living creating and teaching art for my entire adult life. I just signed up for the real estate licensing course. If all goes well, I’ll soon be a licensed realtor. My wife Kendal and I have been married since 2010. While I have been building my art career, she has been working in non-profit arts administration. With Kendal working in non-profits, and me being self-employed, it seemed as though we would never be able to afford a home - especially not in Seattle. I believe real estate is the number one way to build wealth and, if it’s your goal, even achieve financial independence. Seattle is in the midst of a housing crisis. To save up for our first home, we shared a rental home with another couple. With a bit of creativity and some help from someone who listens, I truly believe home ownership is possible for everyone.  I know I'll always be an artist and I hope being a realtor will make me a better one. More than that, I hope I can help people from all walks of life find financial freedom through real estate. I don’t know what the future holds, but I will bring you guys on the journey as I figure it out. Hit the subscribe button down below to stay in touch. Bye.
