We had the good fortune of connecting with Denise Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Denise, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind the success of my brand is putting my team first. I am so passionate about seeing my team win! I am not one of those people that wants all the glory. When people know that you genuinely care about their success, it helps to build loyalty and mutual trust. As a result, your retention rate is high, and your income will continue to increase over time.
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?
Williams & Co International Realty is a full-service real estate brokerage, offering residential and commercial services in the metro-Atlanta area. Our firm assists clients with buying, selling, leasing, and investing in properties across the region. Equipped with years of specialized market knowledge, our team of dedicated agents offers a tailored experience, designed to service our clients’ real estate needs. We are committed to connecting people and properties while making sure their experience with our firm is top-notch. As the Broker/Owner of Williams & Co, I am one of the youngest Real Estate Brokers in America to own and manage my own real estate firm. Most Realtors get into this industry and work as an agent for 10, 20, or even 30+ years and never obtain their broker license. It took a lot of courage to go against the norms in this industry without any guarantees or investors. I would like for people to know that Williams & Co is a minority-owned business, made up of a team of almost 40 agents – and we’re growing daily. Our office is located in the heart of Buckhead, and we are always accepting new clients.
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?
If I was showing my best friend the best time ever while visiting me, my itinerary would be as follows: 1. Breakfast at Gocha’s Breakfast Bar 2. Spa Day at the W 3. Lunch at Roc South Cuisine 4. Mid-day Nap 4. Dinner at KR Steak Bar 5. Attend a Comedy Show at Atlanta Comedy Theater
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my son Destin. He is the co-owner of our real estate firm Williams & Co International Realty. He recently turned 12 on the 16th of October, so for the past 12 years, he has been a part of my journey. He has had a front-row seat to witness many of my struggles, disappointments, and failures, but to him, I am like a superhero, and that gives me the fuel that I need to keep pushing forward. Now that he is older, I make sure that he is more involved in the process of helping me build our company. Destin finally understands the importance of being your own boss.
