Helping Others & Today’s Talent
Helping others achieve great success is the most fulfilling part of Karen Vincent’s career. She tells us there’s a shortage of new talent entering the industry and the industry is still very traditional in how it responds to the changing needs of business and economic volatility. Talent entering the workforce thinks differently, operates differently and has different priorities; the industry needs to innovate to attract talent to keep pace with the dynamic changes going on in the world.
Karen’s Keys to Success
Karen got into the industry when she was working as a mortgage broker and was promoted to head of real estate after bringing a truly innovative idea to the table. “Broad experience and diversity are key to success,” she recently told Bisnow.
“Don’t be afraid to make a lateral move or what seems like a small step back if you can gain valuable experience.”
Karen, pictured above with Monica Morales-Anderson at an award reception, enjoys hitting the slopes with her son, relaxing at the spa with her daughter, and golfing with the whole family in her spare time.
