We had the good fortune of connecting with Jamie Field and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jamie, what do you attribute your success to?
Without a doubt, the number one contributing factor to my success is having the right mindset. How I think determines how I act. How I act determines the results I get. It all starts with my mindset. To ensure that I have a positive and healthy mindset, I have an intentional morning routine and weekly schedule that I follow. I’m constantly reading and studying as well. I manage my mindset, so it doesn’t manage me.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I am an independent realtor with Libertas Real Estate. Prior to getting my real estate license, I had my turn at being a first time home buyer. I have personally bought and sold homes at different stages of my life- as a newlywed, buying our first first home, as a young family looking for a bigger house to accommodate our growing family, an out of state move to support a new business, and then as a single mom, starting over. Also, from 2004 to 2008 I was also an investor, flipping homes and acquiring rental properties. I’ve been through it all, firsthand. I remember the stressors, the excitement, the hustle, the effort and money that went into each transaction. I think having that personal experience helps me better serve my clients, because I not only know all of the ins and outs of the process and transaction, but I also know the emotional side of it as well. This helps me strategize more creatively to support my client obtaining their goals, I also am able to show up and support my client how they need me. A new home buyer might need a little more “hand holding” compared to an investor who needs the numbers carefully calculated and watched.
I’m also a huge advocate for education. Most people outside of the industry don’t know that realtors are required to have so many hours of continued education, every two years. I surpass the continued education requirements by three times that amount. I think it’s important to stay current and informed with hot topics, stay connected to other agents and create those professional relationships and connections and avoid becoming complacent.
It’s important to me that the transaction is successful in the eyes of my client. I care that they obtain the goal of the transaction (buying/selling a home, expanding their portfolio, starting their real estate investments). I also care that they enjoy the transaction too. I’m partnered with some of the best people in the industry! Whether it’s a small mobile home, or a luxury, multi-million dollar property, all of my clients are treated with respect, excitement and tenacity towards their goals!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I have lived all over the valley and I work all over the valley, so I have a long list of favorite places. I love to golf and I am a little bias because it’s close to home, but I love the WigWam Resort in Litchfield Park. The courses are fun and well maintained. The staff members are wonderful and grabbing a drink on Red’s patio afterwards is a great way to end a round. At the other end of the valley in Queen Creek is a fun restaurant called San Tan Flats. The best time to go is on the weekends, when they have live music. I prefer to sit outside, next to the fire pits, and get one of their smore packs, so we can roast marshmallows. The valley is abundant with fun activities, delicious restaurants and cool speakeasies (36 Below is a fun Alice in Wonderland theme. I love tubing down the salt river, going fishing at any of the local lakes (or paddle boarding at Lake Pleasant), hiking up Piestewa Peak, or escaping the heat and playing some games at one of the casinos. I personally love concerts, sporting events and the theater, so I’m always checking out the stadiums and venues around the valley to see what’s going on. There’s always something fun!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have always been into personal development and have attended seminars, workshops and read books all of my life. The one that made the biggest impact was The Basic by PSI Seminars. PSI Seminars is phenomenal! I highly recommend taking any and all of their courses!
