A smooth transition to real estate
After traveling the world for Xerox as its marketing operations director for 34 years Robert Callahan decided it was time to retire-albeit briefly.
Not content on just sitting around the house, Callahan started a second career in real estate 11 years ago. The no-nonsense, yet compassionate realtor, Callahan said his old career was wonderful but said he always had a place for real estate in his heart.
“It was great at Xerox. I put 1.7 million miles on American Airlines working out of Latin America, Central America, and the Caribbean,” he said. “But, it was time to move on.”
Callahan added: “ I’m very happy with my transition and the new career. IT does not get any better than this.”Callahan began working for wheeler Real Estate 11 years ago and stayed on about six years ago when Halstead took over. The company, he said, goes out of its ways for Realtors to succeed.“Their IT department is very good as is their whole presentation of a home in terms of photos,” he said adding “ It’s all Internet-based and advertising-based. We have connections with international sites because of Halstead. They have affiliations with The New York Times and Wall street Journal. They have a broad reach with all of the Internet sites.”
Callahan said his edge is his relationship with clients."My communication with then is constant and very responsive," he said. "I am on call 24/7. If they call you, have to pick up on the first ring and provide information them."
