We were licensed in October of 2006 right here in Astoria Oregon. Guess what happened right after? The real estate market imploded. We have had veteran agents jokingly tell me it’s partly our fault but we continue to maintain our innocence…
When we first got into the real estate business in Astoria Oregon, most of the agents we knew were doing very well. Homes were selling almost instantly, and with minimal effort. Heck, almost everyone got into real estate in Astoria because the money was good and it seemed there was no end in sight.
We all know how that turned out, the market began a sharp decline in 2006 and we’re just now building ourselves all back up. Scores of agents have moved on, and 1000′s more have taken part time jobs to help support themselves.
We were fortunate enough to receive some good training, have a strong work ethic and find a little luck along the way. We have been extremely fortunate. We’ve been blessed with many satisfied, loyal clients that continue to refer their friends & family to us for their real estate needs. We also think it’s important to note that our real estate business is not a hobby or side job but a full time (and often more) career. This is not the case with every agent in the business.
Meet Astoria Oregon’s Kyle Uchitel and Aleksandr Vasser
As noted above, Kyle Uchitel and Aleksandr Vasser began their careers in real estate in 2006 and boy has it been an interesting ride! After growing up in Astoria Oregon, we both attended college at the Oregon Institute of Technology and landed our first post-college jobs in Southern Idaho. We decided to ultimately return to Astoria and follow our passion: real estate. Find out more about us and our experience and history at the below links:
