When I sold Willy Chirino’s House

Willy Chirino and his wife Lissette will forever be in my heart. They are both truly inspiring and I’m honored to have worked with them. Chirino’s house had been on the market for nearly 8 years before I took the listing. I sold their home in 6 months.

Chirino began his artistic career in Miami, releasing his first album in 1974. Since then, he has recorded over 20 albums, several of which have attained platinum and gold status. In 2006, his album “Son del Alma”, won a Grammy for Best Salsa/Merengue Album. As founder of the Willy Chirino Foundation, his philanthropic efforts have been recognized by UNICEF and the Department of State. He celebrated his 35th anniversary in music with his latest released album “Willy Chirino Live-35th Anniversary” (“Willy Chirino En Vivo-35 Aniversario”), a CD/DVD combo of the concert. This album brought him his first nomination for Best Salsa Album at the 2007 Latin Grammy Awards. Most recently, Chirino and his wife, singer/song writer Lissette Álvarez, released their first album together, Amarraditos (Bound to One Another). The CD includes a potpourri of classic Spanish-language love songs. Chirino’s album, “Pa’lante”, was released at spring 2008, after which he launched a world tour. In 2011, when asked of how his recordings of My Beatles Heart, he said that Sony scrutinized every single one of his songs and their versions because they consider the songs by The Beatles as one of their most precious treasures, and wanted to make sure they were being used in a rightful manner.

In 2014, Chirino received a Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in Las Vegas for his music career.

I want to thank the owner for reaching out to me to get the job done. He called me and said, “Luis, I’ve been on the market over a year now and I need you to get it sold!!! I sold it in 6 months.

Every deal is unique and requires thinking outside the box but you must always know who is your target audience. I spent several weeks reaching out to owners, realtors and past clients to get the right party interested to come and see the unit. One day I received a call from a realtor I had previously shown the unit to and she said, “I have the client for this property.” Turns out, she was right. The client flew in just to view the unit and fell in love right away. You never know how a deal is going to get done but it’s extremely important to always have a plan.

THE NICHE ERA

We are living in a time of technological innovation and society is starting to wake up to a new era. As more and more stores continue to close down due to a shift in consumer spending, new opportunities are emerging. Consumers are buying more goods through the internet and the convenience to purchase via our cell phones has never been easier. Now, we can even have our groceries delivered to our front door with a push of a button. Our country is inevitably going through a shift in the workplace and we must look for new ways to create wealth.

In one of the most contentious elections the United States had ever seen, Donald Trump mentioned that about 70,000 factories had closed and 5 million jobs were lost in manufacturing since 2000 due to trade with Europe, China and other Asian countries that are now part of the 12 nation Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement. Additionally, the annual wages for full-time American workers without a four-year college degree fell roughly $1,800 in 2011 due to free trade.

Whether you believe that the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement) was good or bad for the USA one thing is evident, the economy has changed and those who adapt will succeed in the future.

It’s important to understand where we are and where we are going. The future will be what I call “The Niche Era.” A new way of life in which we become experts in a specific subject. In essence we focus on creating our own job and we stop depending on other companies to hire us. We become CEOs.

“Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion. -Jack Welch”

Although this is not a new concept by any means, it’s certainly gaining force in the Millennial community. When you ask a young graduate, what would you like to do in the future? The vast majority answers, “I want to own my business.”

The option to choose what we want to see, hear, feel, taste and smell is also evident in The Niche Era. For example, now we walk around with earphones listening to our favorite music. We don’t like watching commercials so we pay for services like Netflix, Hulu and Spotify to avoid any unwanted noise in our system. We don’t want to deal with traffic so we take Uber or Lift instead. It certainly has become easier to choose the kind of life we want to live.

The mindset of young professionals has shifted from the old paradigm of wanting to be employed by a company to becoming the employer. So, I dare you to create your dream. I dare you to feel uncomfortable and do what you always wanted to do. I dare you to be different, unique and special. I dare you to be the real “YOU.”

What is your dream?
