George is a motivational factor for all in the office. He has great energy and loves telling jokes. George sets an example for all of us to do what we love, at ANY age.
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) November 15, 2013
Prudential PenFed Realty recently sat down with centenarian, George Small, a REALTOR® out of the San Antonio office, age 101. A centenarian is someone who is of 100 years of age or older. Small has more than 20 years of experience as a REALTOR®, and has a background in psychology, music, metallurgy, and life insurance.
Small studied psychology and played the French horn at Wayne College before moving to Mexico to pursue a career in metallurgy. He extended his education through Harvard managerial business courses and ended up working at Butler Building. From there Small transitioned into selling life insurance before moving back to the U.S. and pursuing his real estate career in San Antonio, Texas.
“George is a motivational factor for all in the office. He has great energy and loves telling jokes. George sets an example for all of us to do what we love, at ANY age,” said Scott Caballero, managing broker of Prudential PenFed Realty’s San Antonio office.
Small’s serendipitous choice to pursue a career in real estate in 1985 created a lucrative business opportunity for him as well as the opportunity for him to do something he enjoys; giving customers a home, not just a house. “Money isn’t everything, but it makes everything so nice,” said Small.
Small enjoys working with both buyers and sellers and his favorite real estate story is that of a long distance purchase. He sold a house in San Antonio to a client residing in Europe and conducted the entire transaction via the internet. One of the most important things he has learned over his lifetime is that change is constant and advises real estate professionals entering the market to “be consistent, be determined, and work hard,” said Small.
Small resides and actively practices real estate in San Antonio, Texas. He says his mother has had the greatest impact on his life and “not only was she [his] best friend, but she inspired [him] to learn and advance in life,” said Small. He has been married for 65 years, speaks fluent Spanish (self-taught), and has three daughters.
