We had the good fortune of connecting with Eddie Lack and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Eddie, how do you define success?
Success to me is getting what you want, but fulfillment is living the life you’re made to live….giving your gifts, so to speak.

If you just go for success, you will end up achieving it, if you’re dedicated and are persistent enough.

Anyone who is persistent and consistent can be successful.

But sometimes you get what you want, but you’re not really fulfilled and I believe that success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am retired NHL goalie, who became a Realtor in a Scottsdale AZ about 3 years ago.

I took a winning mindset from playing professional hockey and applied it to real estate and I believe that is what sets me apart.

Many people in my family have been in the real estate business and I saw how rewarding (and also frustrating) this profession can be.

I learned that you have to be patient in this business because I am wired for progress and achievement, and some days you feel like you’re going more backwards than forward.

I want the world to know that I am the Michael Jordan of real estate. I do not stop until we win.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
You def have to hike Camelback Mountain and I strongly suggest visiting Sedona (about 1.5 hours from Scottsdale) as well. Both places are pretty magical.

La Grande Orange is a favorite brunch spot and Cafe Monarch is a top choice as the experience and the food are unsurpassed.

You should also play a round of golf at Camelback Golf Club.

Also there are so many bike trails around Scottsdale. A great way to unwind and spend time with family.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My Dad was my strongest mentor. He was my first hockey coach and coached me for 10 years. It was great spending that much time together. I also met Rollie Melanson when I came to Vancouver. I would not have made it to the NHL without him. He shaped me for the North American game.
