Finding True Reward

When Marcus Rodriguez, 28, educates a potential client on the possibility of homeownership, he’s coming from a place of sincerity and understanding. Many of his clients are single mothers and fathers who viewed owning a home as an unattainable dream. The son of a single mother who moved more than fifteen times when he was a child, Rodriguez knows the concerns of his clients better than most.

"I can relate to a lot of my buyers because they have similar backgrounds," he says. He also knows what the gift of homeownership can provide a family: stability and safety.

Rodriguez works hard to make such a reality come true for his clients by knowing the ins and outs of buyer assistance programs and by developing relationships with lenders, title companies, and inspectors. "Being able to see a smile on clients’ faces at the end of the day, knowing I’ve helped them buy a home when they didn’t think that was possible—that’s a huge reward," he says.
