Meet Maya Minic of Liz Harris Realty in East Valley

Today we’d like to introduce you to Maya Minic.

Maya, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Came from war-torn former Yugoslavia…as an au-pair. In 2005…lived in Chicago and San Francisco before I moved to AZ…Being a realtor in SF Bay Area is not easy at all. So I did work for top producing agents while achieving my BA in International Business…Decided to move to AZ for the affordability and simplicity that life here offers. Went through different areas of Real Estate as Property Management. New Homes Sales. And many more…to be where I’m now. Still have much to learn and much to succeed however I feel I’m much closer to my goal to be one of the well-known real estate professionals in the industry. I have to say that I had moments that I almost quit and gave up…but something inside me was making me keep going …just kept reminding myself that success will come…..if we have strong enough goal and if stay on track doing a little bit every day that day will come. Than you be thankful that you had believe in yourself and people who love will be proud of you.

Has it been a smooth road?
As I said. It wasn’t at easy at all…I had to work hard. Working different jobs…while studying …working for other successful agents…waiting for the right moment to come…and thankfully it came…I came to US in 2005 with very poor English skills…the kids I was babysitting taught me and corrected me…in the beginning…It was a biggest obstacle for me..The language. It can make a life very hard when you can’t express yourself in a right way or say you’re the right way what are you thinking …but learning language and getting my degree made me what I’m today ..However learning is forever….unstopping process to improve not just yourself as an professional but and as a person… and meditation…really helped me go through some difficult time…personally and professionally…now I have my daughter who is my light and happiness that make me stronger and who motivates me every day to do more and better…

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Liz Harris Realty story. Tell us more about the business.
Liz Harris Realty is a smaller local brokerage where I work mostly with the buyers assisting them through the whole process of buying a real estate. My goal is to take that unnecessary stress and keep everything going smooth in the same time getting the best possible deal for my clients. I believe in having great communication and trust that we build through the whole process is key …I try always to be there for my clients…try to be very reachable and responsive since I know how important is to get that answers when you are in the middle of buying one of the biggest purchase in your life time. Enjoying practicing real estate because every day is different and every transaction is very unique…helping people find their first home after so many years of renting and that smile on their face is the best reward I can get for my work…

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Real Estate is very dynamic industry…there are some predictions however it is unrealistic to talk about how and what will be….every state…city is very unique…Gilbert the town where I live now and in generally Arizona is growing very fast…so the predictions are very good so far.. For next couple years for sure….I always advice my clients to buy houses that they love and there is no good or bad time… to buy the right home…
