Cathy Zamanpour

Ever pondered a radical career change that leads to unexpected success and satisfaction? Cathy Zamanpour did just that, swapping the predictability of computer science for the fast-paced world of real estate. In our latest episode, Cathy—now the managing broker for Long Foster at One Loudon—shares the exhilarating story of her transformation. Her background in tech not only set her apart in the realty business but also became instrumental in developing a distinct approach to mentoring and coaching. Listen in as she articulates the profound joy found in guiding clients and new agents alike through their significant life transitions, all while nurturing a genuine desire to make a difference.

This episode isn’t just about career moves; it’s a masterclass in personal and business growth. Cathy walks us through the maze of marketing strategies and personal branding, revealing how these tools empower agents to put their best foot forward. But it’s not all work and no play—Cathy unwinds by painting, a passion that reminds us of the importance of balancing hustle with what brings us happiness. Discover how community involvement, particularly with organizations like the Chamber of Commerce, can lead to meaningful connections and shared successes, both professionally and personally.

Concluding with wisdom that resonates beyond the real estate world, Cathy shares her philosophy of being a beacon of light, especially in the most challenging of times. Her reflections on the resilience of her industry during the pandemic underscore the adaptability and potential for growth amidst adversity. If you’re seeking inspiration to be that positive force in your community or looking for reassurance that shining bright for others will lead to fulfillment, you won’t want to miss these heartfelt insights. So tune in, and allow Cathy’s story to illuminate the possibilities that await when you dare to transition, connect, and be the light.
