Long before graduating from business school, Jonathan Polino says he knew exactly where he wanted to apply his background in finance-to his father’s real estate company. Licensed at 19, Polino decided to join his family’s business after his first year of college.
“By using my sphere of influence and spending many hours following, observing, and modeling the top-producing agents in my firm, I was able to close five transactions in my first three months as a real estate professional.” The following summer, Polino upped that number to seven.
