Real Estate Expert
Hollis Read will never forget his first clients, and they’re not likely to forget him, either. The homeowners were looking for an upgrade, coming to Hollis with a research file and their own valuation estimate for the home they hoped to sell.
At the time, Hollis was enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and working as an air traffic controller, a job that requires a truly next-level attention to detail. Using these skills, he dug into his clients’ research and found that their assumptions on the valuation were far too conservative. Hollis’ significantly higher valuation of the property elicited skepticism from his clients at first, but in just a few short days, the home was under contract for the full asking price.
When he became a homeowner at age 22, Hollis was impressed with how hard his real estate agent worked for him. The transaction process sparked his innate curiosity, ultimately leading him to become a listed real estate agent in Florida, where he was living while in the Air Force.
Hollis brings his Air Force background to everything he does, valuing service over self, putting integrity first, and striving for excellence. Currently living in San Jose, Hollis is completing his bachelor’s degree in finance and will be starting work on his MBA in 2021.
