Interview with Jaime Richichi (@jaimerichichi)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

The real estate spark was ignited at a young age, when Jaime and her mother would spend weekends attending open houses in appreciation for their aesthetic. This fueled her understanding of urban and rural property styles, market trends and opportunities.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?

My interesting story is that I get to work with diverse communities and learn a lot of new and exciting knowledge from them. It makes me grow as a person, and it also gives me good feelings when I help people.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

In real estate, there are really no days off. Your personal life and professional life cross over in every aspect, so you end up always being “on” which if you don’t know how to manage through that can feel overwhelming. But once you start authentically showing up and being your true self the more fun you will have along the way and the work will no longer feel like work, it will organically flow in your everyday life. Real Estate is a very special business where we have the opportunity to not only help people achieve their dreams while seeing beautiful properties but we get to meet interesting people from all walks of life who are tastemakers in their own respect. If you embrace this as and enjoy learning about others it will change your life in the most powerful way.

None of us is able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

I’m grateful to all my friends, family, and people who support and believe in my brand and sense. I was down one week when I had nothing to do. With these, I always remained motivated.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

Giving back and helping others is one of the most important things to me. I am someone who experiences more joy from giving than getting. Volunteering at local food banks, donating to charities that make an impact whenever I can is very important to me. I also like to make home cooked meals and personally hand them out to the homeless.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?

“Those who hesitate die” was a quote that I got from my mother when she was teaching me how to drive. I was coming into an intersection on a yellow light and I paused which almost caused a 3-car accident. Her point was trusting your gut and make a decision – It’s an extreme quote and I laugh every time I think about it.  But I also use it when I find myself questioning my gut instinct, it’s a great reminder to trust yourself. She was the original Mel Robbins 5 Second Rule!
