The Extra Mile

If knowledge is power, Bethany Nolan, 29, is one powerful agent. After receiving her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in agricultural journalism, Nolan started a career in corporate public relations, but soon realized it wasn’t the right fit. "I didn’t want to be behind a computer all day. I needed to be me."

Nolan decided to follow in her father’s footsteps. She made the shift to real estate and began racking up designations. "I went through a phase where I got a new designation every quarter," she says. Then, in 2021, she became a licensed broker in the state of Texas. "Education has always been important to me, and by having my broker’s license—the highest form of education I can receive as an agent—it shows that I am willing to go the extra mile," Nolan says. Becoming a broker has also given her grounding in the legal aspects of the real estate business. "It makes me feel like I’m a true partner in my family’s business."

Nolan’s generous about sharing what she’s learned, which has helped her rack up social media followers. Her educational videos, tips, and posts have helped her garner almost 20,000 followers on Instagram and reach more than half a million people per week.
