By combining showbiz and real estate, I've been fortunate to create a stage in which I can share my optimistic views on life and the future. I love it so much that I'm currently writing a book about health, success, love, and happiness.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 9, 2008
On December 3rd, just days before it was announced that approx. 500,000 U.S. jobs were lost in November, Shapiro & Sher Group's Aaron Auxier was awarded as 'Outside Agent - Survivor of the Year' by the Las Vegas High Rise Condominium Association (LVHCA). Auxier was voted the category winner out of over 15,000 REALTORS in Las Vegas. This was his 2nd major award of the year, after being named a Top-10 'Rising Star of Business' by the Las Vegas Business Press in March 2008.
"We threw the Survivor Awards to recognize top professionals in several categories including architecture, innovation, and management," says Jason Koverchuk - LVHCA Sales & Marketing Council Chair. "Las Vegas is full of those who are dedicated to making a difference."
By working with high-profile figures in the Las Vegas luxury real estate market, Auxier has earned the nickname 'Hollywood's Connection to Vegas', a title he says he wants to use to spread a more important message - A message of hope.
"People are intrigued by celebrities and glitz, my goal is to get the attention of the world, then inspire people to make each day count," says Auxier. "By combining showbiz and real estate, I've been fortunate to create a stage in which I can share my optimistic views on life and the future. I love it so much that I'm currently writing a book about health, success, love, and happiness."
During these difficult times, Auxier talks enthusiastically about inspiring others. He credits his passion to several life experiences including surviving a massive earthquake and an explosion. Most importantly, he says that the current economic crisis has humbled and helped him grow in ways that he wants to share. He blushes yet glows with excitement when asked about his recent feature in VEGAS Magazine where he was compared to Leigh Steinberg (the famous Sports Agent) and referred to as a 'Realtor to the Stars'.
"It's a balancing act. I've grown into a humble person and don't like it when people think they're better than others," he quips. "I'm a low-profile guy yet I've dreamed about being involved in entertainment since I was a kid. Rather than letting the recession bring me down, I'm having fun and taking nothing for granted. It's an organic mindset."
Auxier explains that ending 2008 by winning the 'Outside Agent - Survivor of the Year Award' means a lot to him. "Las Vegas has been called 'Ground Zero' of the housing crisis, it has taken its toll and made us all stronger." He hints about his past, one which was 'full of challenge, tragedy, and compromise.' A past that serves as ambition for making the most out of every day. Auxier adds, "Now is not the time to be sad about what you don't have, it's time to be thankful for what you do have."
It's no secret that the Las Vegas real estate market has been hard hit by the economic meltdown, a U.S. economy which President-elect Barack Obama recently said will get worse before it gets better. Thankfully, in every city of America there are individuals who are fighting hard for a brighter future. Individuals who refuse to quit. Individuals who challenge and inspire not only themselves, but most importantly, others.
They are the true Survivors.
