Taylor Hirst had worked for brokerages that touted their big name as the best way to get leads. Increasingly unsatisfied with what they were able to offer, she began looking for a new opportunity that would provide better support and room for growth, as well as the ability to spend quality time with her growing family.
After interviewing with many local brokerages, Taylor decided to join Side partner company Navigate Realty, based in El Dorado Hills, CA, as an Associate REALTORⓇ. She was impressed with the technology and services that Side provided, and the access to the team of professionals there.
“This can be a scary industry. The fact that Side is behind [me], I don’t ever have to have that fear …. I can just trust.”
At Navigate Realty, she has learned from the best and found the support she needed to thrive.
“I’m running with the fastest, most top-producing agents and my experience has been, ‘Why doesn’t everybody else do this?’.”
Most importantly, she says, “I still get to be ‘Mom’,” noting the ease with which the Side App enables her to manage transactions — even when she’s out with her family.
“I was at a fair with my family and somebody really needed something changed [in a transaction document]. And I was like, ‘I can do that right now. I don’t have to go home .… I finished it and didn’t miss anything with my girls. That’s what’s valuable.”
It’s my pride and joy that I no longer embrace ‘hustle culture’ or ‘the grind.’ I have more balance, I am home with my family, I am respected by my clients, and I genuinely enjoy my career.
