Rising Stars: Meet Eric Rose

Today we’d like to introduce you to Eric Rose.

Hi Eric, it’s an honor to have you on the platform.  Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us  – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory  with our readers?
After graduating From Umass Amherst in 1997, I moved to  Orlando to start a singing career but worked at Disney in  the interim. From 1999-2003, I was working as a manager at  Disney as well as singing in a four part harmony group  opening up for National recording artists. We had two  record deals on the table but fell through due to poor  management. I always made sure I had a backup plan and  after decided to take a position in property management  and worked my way into real estate. From there, I worked  cutting lawns in order to supplement my income while I  built up my real estate business. I continuously networked  and slowly worked my way up. Some years were better than  others however, I had an opportunity to work for a Home  Builder as a new home consultant for a couple of years.  Being here helped give me additional training which  provided a different aspect of how things are done on the  new construction side. I was able to take this knowledge  and apply it back to residential sales. I felt my skills were  best utilized to help both buyers and sellers instead of  catering just to the seller’s side. I wanted to make sure  every party involved had a fair deal and that is what I bring  to the table today. Fast forward a few years later, I became a  general sales manager for a prominent Keller Williams 

Team out of Lake Mary, Florida and for two years help  increase their revenues. I then transitioned to Berkshire  Hathaway and the team I was managing at Keller Williams,  decided on their own, that they wanted to make the switch  with me. We all ended up helping each other build each  other’s business. For the next two years, I strived and  became one of the top 5 agents in our office, Top 16%  nationally ranked in the Berkshire Company and was  recognized and became a Bronze member of Orlando  Regional Association’s million dollar Club Top Producers.  Fast forward to the present, I have been afforded the  opportunity to work with a company, Next Move, which  caters to sports athletes and entertainers. So I have  recently gone back to the Keller Williams company working  in this new venture that I have been waiting for since I  started my career. It’s funny how things happen because a  month ago, one of our former singing members reach out to  us and said some of our old music was playing overseas and  since we now have access to do things ourselves, he  suggested we release some of our old songs in an album. So  on October 1st, we did just that. In addition, there was a  jingle contest recently held by Morgan and Morgan law  firm. So I wrote the jingle in a few days, one of the  members arrange the harmonies, had the guys record it  from their homes and then submitted it. We will now wait  and see who the winner is by the end of October.  Ultimately, getting to this point wasn’t easy and it has  taken a lot of hard work and networking with persistence 

and some luck. However, I am at a point where I feel I am  about to soar beyond what I could have ever imagined.  

Prior to entering real estate, Eric Rose’s career in the music  and film industry afforded him opportunities to work with  Grammy/Emmy award-winning producers and directors,  and he also shared the stage with national recording artists.  As fate would have it, after a five-year run, his career shift  brought him into property management. Commencing his  Real Estate career in 2003, Eric has spent the first part of  his career working in the property management sector, with  the last 15 years bringing an extensive amount of  experience to multiple Real Estate transactions.  In 2017 he was hired as the general sales manager for a  prominent Keller Williams Team. Increasing sales volume  and beating previous year’s numbers was proven by the  team’s consistent awards achieved as top closed group and  top sales volume. In 2019 he was afforded the opportunity  to work for Berkshire Hathaway and in 2020 his persistence  has led him to be ranked top 5 in the Winter Springs  Berkshire Office, ranked 16% nationally with Berkshire  Hathaway and increased his sales volume by 33%. In 2020  Eric has also been recognized as an ORRA Top Producer  Million Dollar Club member.  

However, Eric realizes it’s not about the awards or the  accolades that matter, it’s about taking the time to listen to  people and understand what they want. Eric has a genuine 

concern for his client’s needs and is known for delivering  successful results.  

Whether he is searching for a moderately priced home for a  first-time buyer or selling a luxury property for a high profile client, Eric treats every client with the utmost level  of priority. His loyal clientele with their repeat business and  personal referrals has been a key component of his overall  success in his real estate career. His main goal is making  sure every single instance feels seamless for his clients.  In addition, Eric is also an active member of The Next Move  Network, which collaborates to manage the full lifecycle of  real estate  

acquisitions and sales servicing the unique needs of the  private client, with a specific focus on athletes and  entertainers, in over 100 international markets. The Next  Move Team collectively closes over $1.5 BILLION in  residential real estate over a rolling 12-month period  His motto is humbleness goes a long way and life is about  the decisions you make. Eric’s dedication and his  straightforward approach with his readiness to be available  give him the edge clients are looking for. When you work  with Eric, you will have the confidence that you will be  taken care of. A professional you can rely on.  

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what  are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along  the way?
It has not been a smooth road, there have been many years  where sales were low but I was always resourceful and 

made sure I had a backup plan to supplement. There was a  year where I was injured and had a hairline fracture on both  sides of my jaw and couldn’t work for a few months because  I ended up having vertigo.  

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For  our readers who might not be as familiar what can you  tell them about what you do?
I work as a residential realtor working with buyers, sellers  and investors. My main goal is to make sure all my clients  have the same level of customers service no matter if they  are private clients or first-time home buyers. I believe  

everyone should have the highest customer service  experience. I am most proud of my work ethic and the  ability to always be available for my clients. I think it is safe  to say if you ask any of my clients, they are very impressed  at how easy it is to reach me. If for some reason I am in a  meeting, I will text them back right away letting them know  I will call as soon as I am finished. I believe that sets me  apart from many agents. The common complaint from  customers is that they can never reach their realtor. I am  very upfront with my clients and never sugarcoat anything.  I want them to know exactly what they are getting into and  make sure communication is clear from the start so there  are no misunderstandings. I feel when you take care of  others, those good deeds always come back, and it has done  just that for me in the referrals I receive.  

Can you share something surprising about yourself?
A lot of my clients did not know I sang in an r&b group  almost immediately out of college. I also worked as an  assistant casting director for a year and casted myself in a  few movies as an extra/stand in. Some of the movies I  worked on were the Waterboy, Instinct, Walking across  Egypt and some various shows.
