Invest in Yourself

Gwen Daubenmeyer has been in the real estate business for over thirty years. She is a business owner with an extremely successful team, and she works directly with clients as well. As an entrepreneur, leader, coach, and mentor, Gwen is undeniably inspirational and a wealth of knowledge! In this episode of Pursuing Freedom, she shares her amazing story. Gwen explains how she took the wheel of her own life and built a business that she doesn’t need a vacation from—a business that matches her strengths and supports her dream life.

Overcoming Fear and Failure

The real estate business is full of ups and downs, so resilience and mindset are very important! Gwen faced hard times while she worked to get the business on its feet. And during that process, Gwen’s husband lost his job as well. Fear and failure are inevitable, the longer you are in this industry, but they can shape you into a much stronger person if you push through. For that to happen, you need to be transparent with yourself (not judgmental) and think critically about what you could have done differently. The lessons you learn from failure make it easier to overcome in the future. Gwen even hired a coach so she could approach the failures with more objectivity!

Continuing Education

Beyond coaching and mentorship, continuing education is a must for those of you who want to get a leg up in the real estate business. Gwen and her husband married directly out of high school, and they didn’t go to college. They were masters of networking and managing people, but they lacked the fundamental skills to operate a business. That doesn’t have to be a roadblock though. If you want to learn new things that will help you grow personally and professionally, there are tons of resources available to you. Get out there and learn something new, then apply it in your own business.

About Gwen Daubenmeyer

Gwen Daubenmeyer is driven, and she carries a flame in one hand and a fire hose in the other. Gwen holds a deep, personal grudge against mediocrity.

She began her real estate career in the 80’s when interest rates were in the double-digits; people told her being a real estate agent was really hard and not a good idea. She loves both a dare and a challenge; this quality has contributed greatly to her continued success.

She is the team leader of a highly specialized real estate team in the top 1% in the country. They have won many coveted awards and designations, but the thing she is most proud of is that 94.7% of her business last year was from past client referrals. She is an accredited stager, negotiation expert, and Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist.

Gwen is in the top 1% in production of Agents Nationwide, and The Integrity Team is considered to be one of the Top Ten RE/MAX Teams in SE Michigan.
