Creating Wealth Through Real Estate
Hi, I am Nina Grayson, a Realtor® with Keller Williams serving clients in Los Angeles County. I am originally from San Francisco, California and was raised in Berkeley from the age of eight, and then I moved to Colorado in 1996.
While in Colorado, I earned my Bachelors Degree in African American Studies at Metropolitan State University of Denver in 2014 and then moved to Los Angeles and earned my Masters degree in Organizational Leadership at Union Institute & University in 2016.
My “why” for choosing a career in real estate is simple: I am creating wealth for myself and others!
After I saw how others suffered loss during the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) of 2008, I knew I wanted to be financially free and help others do the same.
In March of 2008, I was one of the many Americans who almost lost their home when I had to list it as a short sale. My lender did not approve the short sale and instead gave me an offer; I was one of the lucky homeowners who qualified for a mortgage loan modification and was able to keep my home.
I then finished my Bachelors Degree five years later and decided to move back to California. Before I moved, I had to sell my house, so I worked with a Keller Williams agent and together we sold my home for cash in less than 28 days! I was so impressed with Keller Williams and learned so much about selling real estate, the seed was planted for me to explore real estate as an investment vehicle.
Once I made it back to California with my beloved cat Tuss, I continued to work in higher education as a Director of Enrollment while learning real estate investing. After two promotions, I began my PhD in Interdisciplinary Studies, seizing the opportunity to write in academia about creating wealth through real estate.
Serving students in pursuing their educational goals was fulfilling, but my interest in real estate and real estate investing continued to grow, with training in every type of investment; from fix-n-flips, to notes, to JV Partnerships, Multifamily, Syndication, and more! Fast-forward to 2017, nine years of studying real estate – I knew I could bring my business and leadership experience to the real estate industry in service to Sellers and Investors nationally and around the globe.
I am now in my tenth year of real estate, and have been a licensed Agent since 2017. I am grateful every day to be partnered with one of the top brokerages in the world, Keller Williams, operating in over 800 offices across the globe. I now get to serve individuals and families throughout Los Angeles County for both commercial and residential sales, purchases, and investing. And I work with a large network of Agents across the nation to help investors find find new opportunities.
One of my values is to give back to community, particularly serving others in need. I am an active supporter of ending homelessness, contributing to Keller Williams charity and disaster relief campaigns on Red Day, and supporting Water.org, and doing community outreach to educate others how to create wealth through real estate.
I look forward to meeting you, creating a great relationship, and serving you in all of your real estate needs.
