Daily Inspiration: Meet Joe Consumo

Today we’d like to introduce you to Joe Consumo.

Joe, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I started working downtown in 2003 at a national mortgage company and worked there for 10 years as a Financial Counselor, Marketing Rep, and Credit Manager. After that, my love for food brought a friend and I together to collaborate on opening a small restaurant on Clinch Ave called Cafe Du Soleil. While we had great reviews, sadly the overhead was too high and not sustainable, after 4 years we had to close shop.

Shortly afterward a friend told me that I should try my hand at real estate and I’ve been doing it ever since. Three years ago another good friend who is a major developer and property owner downtown approached me to work at his Brokerage it has been a great transition and I really enjoy helping my clients find the perfect home.

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’s been a great opportunity to live downtown for over a decade and to work downtown and in the surrounding areas. There are always challenges along the way but I’ve always had great support from my friends, my boss, and my co-workers.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
At Terminus Real Estate, I focus on downtown condominium sales in particular. What sets me and just a handful of agents apart from others is our focus and knowledge of the downtown market.

What would you say has been one of the most important lessons you’ve learned?
Nothing is ever set in stone and you have to be ready and willing to adapt to whatever situation comes along.
