I have had the pleasure of working with Uhhhmazing Real Estate Agents here in North Carolina. The one I’m introducing you to today is no exception. Victoria Hairston is a super cool young lady, an awesome realtor, and a model (so much more as well). I have had the pleasure of working with Victoria and wanted to feature her this month (Small Business Month). She brings a smile and great energy to any room she enters. So pull up a chair and check out my interview with her.
When I think of Victoria Hairston, I think of fun. What keeps you smiling and full of joy?
Genuinely doing what I love. My purpose is fulfilled with every real estate transaction, in spite of wanting to give up from time to time. I am good at it and I have friends and family that support me. Having so much love around me makes it so much easier.
You are pretty multi-talented. How did you get into Real Estate and why?
Back in 2019 is when it all began. I give credit to my boyfriend. He asked what I really wanted to do and I said real estate. So he said let’s do it and got with my friend and they paid for my classes as a birthday gift (one of the best gifts ever). I love the constant of corporate but love the dynamic of real estate and the flexibility it brings even more.
So you recently just left your 9-5 to go FT in Real Estate. Congratulations first off, and secondly, what was the process like for you? How did you prepare and when did you know it was TIME?
I left in September of 2021. I knew it was time before that but it was so familiar and comfortable. Business has drastically picked up, and I would have to take time off to manage listings and showings. I prayed and waited for God and at the same time making sure my finances were in order. It’s so important to have a year’s worth of savings because entrepreneur life is not for the faint of heart. Getting the finances together was tough but so was building up the courage to actually do it.
I see you model as well, how do you manage all that you do and still keep everything moving in the right direction?
Time management is key. If you don’t own your schedule it will own you. I work hard on time blocking to ensure I can stay on top of everything. Modeling is sporadic but real estate is flexible so they work well together. Modeling slips in between the gaps of real estate work. It’s a great combination for me because I love them both.
What is your favorite thing about real estate?
Closing day. Genuinely seeing the joy and excitement on clients’ faces. Seeing the completion of a journey, through the ups and downs. Knowing that I helped someone find their forever home. It’s the joy for me.
Personal time and self-care are so essential. How do you recharge? What tips do you have for those who are always on the grind, but seldom recharge?
I enjoy doing things away from real estate. Hanging with friends, and enjoying the shut down from real estate to have fun. Manis and pedis always help. Believe it or not, cleaning is therapeutic. I can throw on some music and vibe as I clean. Putting things together is also therapeutic. I love crafting as well. And if you know me, you know I enjoy my naps, they are everything.
What is your motivation?
Making my parents proud. I love hearing them say I’m so proud of you. I am also excited to prepare the next generation for better.
How does faith play a role in your business?
It’s the first thing, the most important thing, everything. No matter what the situation, trusting in God is necessary. I remember when I was going to take a month off but didn’t consider the months to come. Then the expenses and weight of it all came and my first instinct could have been to panic. Instead, I prayed and put my trust in God. Let me tell you I didn’t lose sleep, miss a meal, or a payment. God worked it all out and always has! I’m a firm believer that what’s for you is for you so I trust Him and keep moving forward.
It’s the year 2026, what is new with Victoria? How has your business grown?
Oh, 2026 is going to be amazing. I see myself with an entire team, licensed in multiple states. GROWTH on every level. I will be helping others when they are starting out, teaching and showing them how to be successful.
Do you have any advice for new realtors?
Trust the process. It doesn’t happen overnight. Repeat
People come in focusing on making money and think it will be easy. It’s not easy and it takes work. Put in the time, take your time be authentic, and let God do the rest.
