The Mission For My Life Is...
To be Knowlegeable and succesful while inspiring the sucess of other through education
When she was only 7 years old Amina Blake already had the knack for sales. Walking down to the local village market in her home town in Trinidad in the West Indies, she would spend her weekends selling rare and exotic spices to locals and tourists alike gaining a reputation for her winning personality, honesty and integrity.
In 2001, Amina left the warm tropics for the harsh New England weather of Connecticut to move in with her family and as she explains family is more important than sunny skies and palm trees. She enrolled at Central Connecticut State University and while taking classes also split her time working as an office administrator in a local real estate office. The environment immediately appealed to her and as soon as she could she obtained her real estate agent license and went to work.
This approach has served her well. Still young for the real estate industry, Amina leads the Amina Blake Team at Keller Williams Realty, a premier international real estate company. In 2017 Amina was ranked the number Individual Team in closed units for all of New England region, as well as earned top listing agent and selling agent awards year after year. Amina also estimates that 65% of her sales come from past clients and referrals, solid proof that her integrity and honesty go a long way.
Amina's bachelor's degree is in Secondary Education as a Math Major from Central CT State University she has always had a love and passon for teaching and coaching. She now coaches other Real Estate agents locally and across the country to help them achieve unimaginable levels of sucess.
"In this business you really do get as much as you put in to it", she says. "You need to be confident in your ability or the person you're dealing with will lose confidence in you. I always keep the lines of communication open because being honest with one another is the only way the deal works."
"The reward for me isn't just about the money and the big live I get to fund for my family," she says, "it's about knowing I was able to help people achieve their dreams.
