Megan Spargo-Ferrell Shares Her Expertise in Buffini & Co. Magazine

Megan Spargo-Ferrell

 

The most successful real estate professionals are no strangers to the concept of self improvement. They commit to learning and, as a result, their businesses thrive.

 

Buffini & Co. asked some of their most accomplished Members who’ve attended the elite business conference, The Peak Experience, “What are your best tips for personal and professional growth?”

 

Megan Spargo-Ferrell My best tip for personal and professional growth and development is to always be a student; no matter how old you are or how long you’ve been in your career field, be curious, be inquisitive and always be learning. Adjust your mindset to hear and fully consider what is being said. It will create the greatest opportunity for growth.

Hot Property: 1310 Laveta Terrace Featured in the LA Times!


1310 Laveta Terrace - Hot Property
1310 Laveta Terrace // Los Angeles 90026

 

Shock rock legend Alice Cooper has a duplex for sale in Echo Park at $1.299 million. No, this isn’t an investment property he happens to own — it’s a space he has used as a writer’s retreat when in town creating music for himself and the Hollywood Vampires.


The two-unit house was built in 1927 and maintains its Spanish-style roots with arched windows and passages. The 2,027 square feet of interiors, however, look fresh and new with updated kitchens, bathrooms and light walls. The singer-songwriter-actor completely renovated the duplex when he bought it in 2006 for $700,000.
