Real Estate Professional
Tarik was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri and attended high school there at Lincoln College Preparatory Academy. He decided to pursue a career in real estate when his now mentor and teammate, Cindy Spicer, discovered him when he worked at Sprint cellular in early 2018. While he was helping Cindy as a Sprint retail consultant, she highlighted how she appreciated his communication, customer service and work ethic during the transaction. She asked Tarik if he had considered becoming a real estate agent. He always loved helping people in some way or another, and from that point his journey towards becoming an agent began.
One of Tarik's deeper purposes for pursuing a real estate career is to impact his community. Coming from the local Kansas City community, he wants to inspire others in the community to pursue big dreams and purpose. He is beyond excited this moment has arrived. Since his real estate career has started, he has enjoyed getting to know each client's story and needs. Tarik also enjoys the process of meeting and understanding the customer's needs all the way up to the closing of the transaction. He believes all the effort leading up to becoming a real estate agent has paid off because he gets the to meet and understand new people everyday and help them reach decisions that are meaningful for many people. Tarik holds an Associate's Degree. Tarik looks forward to helping and serving you.
