27 East: Why Millennials Are Choosing Real Estate As A Career
Growing up in Sag Harbor, 8-year-old Kevin Geddie often was found on the job site banging nails with his father, Douglas, a prominent builder on the South Fork. “But he never wanted me to go into that profession,” Mr. Geddie said. “In the wintertime, spending long hours working on houses on the ocean, my dad’s hands were purple. He told me, ‘You’re either going to sell them or you are going to have no part of this business.’” Now, the 29-year-old is a salesperson on Matthew Breitenbach’s team—one of the top-selling teams Compass has on the South Fork. Mr. Geddie is like many millennials who are opting to get into the real estate business, according to recent industry survey by the National Association of Realtors.
