Hello everyone, my name is Sokhna Daluz, you can call me Sonia.
I am a mother of two girls and decided to get my Bachelor in general studies through an adult learning program. I am a student of College Unbound and my project in the past two years is based on Community Development through Housing. I have worked as a real estate agent for the last ten years and experiencing the housing crisis through my work, my clients’ stories and the consequences of the crisis in our everyday lives. As a realtor, I asked myself a lot of questions about the crisis. Questions like what could or should do to prevent such tragedy from happening in the future. For me, the question is: how can I work differently as a Realtor to be able to bring the most valuable information to my clients to help them make better decisions when they purchase or sell a property. My myth was that as a Realtor, because of all the risks for liability, it would be difficult for me to change work habits. after reading many articles on the housing crisis, I came to realize that in the last five years many programs have been created by the US government or Advocacy groups to better educate consumers and help them protect themselves and their investments. A good example is organizations collaborating and creating partnerships with Realtors to help revitalize and stabilize and develop neighborhoods throughout the nation. I have recently interviewed different people from those organizations and working to become their partner and participate in different ways to help consumers achieve the American Dream the safest way possible.
I have a different view of real estate now and see it mostly a tool to help develop less privileged communities than an investment or just shelter.
