My name is Gianna, and during the summer I was a blog writer for Tom Crimmins Realty. Starting my internship in early July, I pretty much knew what to expect beforehand. There were two main components to the task, including photography and writing. I would have to say my favorite aspect of interning here was being able to work independently, yet still being a part of a team. Having the opportunity to intern here has helped me to grow as a writer. Throughout my time here, I wrote blogs about topics I wasn't familiar with in an attempt to expand my horizons, which led to me learning a bunch of interesting information.
While writing simple blogs and collaborating on marketing videos, the interns used Slack, a cloud-based collaborating platform where we could update each other on our progress and ask for help if we needed it. Suzanne & Tom Crimmins has done an amazing job of putting such talented young people in a setting which challenges them as well as offers something new to learn everyday. Also, I have come to learn a decent amount of the basics of real estate and realized how dynamic and broad the business actually is. I had no clue it took so many different people and processes in order to buy or sell a home.
This internship was a highly valuable learning experience, and it allowed me to further learn about what it takes to run a real estate business. Before working here the real estate business was not something I was familiar with, but after just one month I learned about escrow, loans, and the power of attorney.
The atmosphere at Tom Crimmins Realty is relaxed and productive, which is welcoming to anyone who steps through the front doors. This internship has affected my plans for the future by helping me to realize I'm interested in researching and writing about animals more than any other topics as well as certain business skills, which has made me question if I wanted to go to school for veterinary medicine. I certainly feel much more comfortable in a professional setting.
