Tisha Greene revealed her motivational speaking skills in an eloquent entrepreneur lecture for the School of Business on February 24. A dynamic real estate broker, entrepreneur, attorney, mother, mentor and local leader, Tisha spoke about her passion about promoting the virtues of “community” in both her professional and personal life.
Tisha has over 20 years of real estate experience as a commercial real estate and finance attorney, real estate investor, area planning commissioner, community planning and land use advocate, mortgage broker, and her primary role as a real estate broker. Her diverse background in real estate gives her a great depth of skills, topical knowledge and professional contacts to provide a high level of service and added value for her clients. Tisha is also skilled at representing sellers and buyers in probate and trust transactions, short sales, bankruptcy, REOs & investment deals. In addition to the breadth of Tisha’s expertise, it is her passion to be in service that truly distinguishes her from other agents.
In her presentation to the Woodbury community, Tisha reflected on a fascinating journey that consisted of a strong educational foundation, and a successful career. She graduated from Howard University with a B.A. and a J.D., and started a very lucrative career as an attorney. However, while the financial remuneration was great, Tisha’s heart was not in the context of working for a major entity. She realized it was time to explore avenues that were more authentic to her true self. When someone asked her what she would do for free, she first did not know the answer, but gradually came to the conclusion that real estate was her calling!
Tisha quickly learned that her strength was in establishing connections, and not just making a lot of money. In fact, she found out that money becomes a consequence of doing in an authentic and legitimate way what you enjoy. By bringing people together, she discovered gratification, but also how to become comfortable with being uncomfortable. Being an entrepreneur, Tisha explained, is a path beset with both lean and abundant times. One of the times that this became clear was during the 2007/2008 crash. Yet, even though she has experienced the ups and downs of the field, she attests that there is a special type of gratification in being your own boss, as it triggers your creativity in ways you might not have thought to be possible before.
