Tiffany Harris and Brandi Hawkins Owners of Harris Hawkins & Co
Tiffany Harris and Brandi Hawkins are the Realtor/Broker Co-Owner of Harris Hawkins & Co., a boutique Brokerage located in Baltimore, MD. These ladies are making history in Baltimore, providing a space that offers growth and education for other black real estate agents.
Their goal is to accommodate women, especially black women, to run their potential large business without struggling to figure out specific challenges they have mastered themselves. Once the Harris, Hawkins, & Co. team opened its doors back in July, they’ve been able to assist first-time homebuyers, repeat buyers, and investors find the perfect property and ensure the staging of the houses they have sold was perfect.
Hustle and Soul Magazine got an exclusive interview with Tiffany and Brandi.
Tammy Reese: What inspired you to get into the real estate industry?
Brandi: I was a stay-at-home mom, and one day, I decided that I needed more. I’ve always been an entrepreneur at heart, and sales have always been my thing. Real estate has proven to be such a fulfilling career because I was able to introduce generational wealth to so many families and assist real estate agents in growing their businesses.
Tammy Reese: What do you enjoy most about the work that you do?
Brandi: Offering a high level of customer service while assisting clients to meet their real estate goals. The joy and sense of accomplishment that clients feel on settlement day is such a pleasantry.
Tammy Reese: How did your business partnership come about?
Brandi: Tiffany and I met at a previous real estate brokerage. She went out for surgery, and I checked on her daily. Our friendship began during that time. Once she returned to the office, we decided to grab lunch. During that lunch meeting, we discussed our goals, and they aligned. We then realized that we could so much more together. Thus, Harris Hawkins & Co was born!
Tammy: Please tell us what sets Harris Hawkins & Co. apart from other entrepreneurs in your industry?
Tiffany: Harris Hawkins & Co. embodies collaboration over competition. The Brokerage curates an atmosphere of growth and the concept that we can achieve more together.
Tammy: What else would you like for our readers to know about your business?
Tiffany: At Harris Hawkins & Co, we live by “collaboration over competition”. We’ve created an environment that allows our agents and their businesses to thrive. You really can do more together.
Tammy: What advice would you have for others who aspire to enter your industry?
Tiffany: Remain consistent in your efforts and tasks even when the money isn’t flowing. Focus on building a real estate business, not just “doing” real estate.
