This week, Byron sat down with the most followed realtor on TikTok, Zach Faust.
Zach boasts one of the most interesting backgrounds in the real estate space. Describing his journey as making it up as he goes, he first signed with the army at just 17 years old. Following his deployment, he struggled with feeling like he hadn’t established much of a career or many marketable skills. From installing police sirens on police cars to working a year as a correctional officer, Zach gained a lot of interesting experience. Speaking on his time as a correctional officer, he said:
“There was one time a lady covered herself in her own feces and refused to come out of her cell. She was completely naked and covered head to toe. It prepared me for real estate because everyone in real estate is crazy. Every day is different, and I never know what to expect. And sometimes it feels like there’s a woman who’s covered herself in her own feces and refuses to come out of her cell every once in a while.”
Zach was eventually pulled into real estate by an agent who picked out his personality and signed him up for a real estate licensing course against his will. Since then, he has become one of the most viewed digital creators within the real estate space. Zach also offered his take on Ryan Serhants prediction that 50% of real estate transactions will be done in crypto and on the blockchain very soon.
