If you are broke and want to be wealthy, there is good news for you! Not about “buying fewer lattes” and opening “more savings accounts” but about changing your mindset to think ‘real estate’ and build a productive life. It all begins with addressing “invisible scripts”- the unspoken truths that are deeply ingrained in our minds. Glennda At A GlanceMeet Glennda Baker LeBlanc, a top real estate agent running an all-female team. Glennda is the founder and CEO of Glennda Baker and Associates. She is also a broker to some of Atlanta’s most noted residents. However, many life challenges have characterized her journey to leading a successful business. When Glennda was a high-school student, she was relentlessly bullied. She was made fun of for the way she walked and talked. She missed a whopping 40 days of her senior year because of frustration, which endangered her graduation. She barely graduated from high school, and to date, Glennda still wonders whether her graduation was on merit or pity. When Glennda married, things weren’t much different. She found herself divorced from her second husband with two children to raise and only $44 in her bank account. Her first husband had sued her for custody and alimony. And, Glennda had been a heavy drinker – she spent almost all her life drinking and was only sober for four years. How Glennda Found Herself In The Real Estate IndustryAfter the divorce, Glennda decided to sign up for her broker’s class and started her own real estate company out of her home. She decided to make real estate not only her job, but also her life. Her clients became her friends, and, most importantly, they became her family. In 1995, Glennda became the first agent to sell a single-family residential property over $5,000,000. Glennda built a team that specializes in the purchase and sale of homes all over the Atlanta area. They have specialized in home sales from Buckhead to Cumming, Peachtree City to Gainesville, Dallas to Augusta, and everywhere in between. Today, Glennda’s clients range from builders to first time buyers to primary home purchasers, investors, and luxury home buyers. She specializes in referrals from satisfied clients and lives her dream, selling real estate with passion. What excites her most is to know that her clients depend on her counsel and advice to make decisions about what is their most tremendous single asset.
