When buying your first home, selling your previous one, or relocating to a new area, you want to get the process right. Beyond market conditions and your budget, many factors determine the outcome of a real estate transaction. Securing the right agent can illuminate uncertainties and opportunities you would never have seen.

Nebraska Realtor Arianna Jefferson sees all facets of real estate as investments. Thus, she believes there are universal truths all budding homeowners should follow if they want to get the most out of their purchase or sale. Whether your goal is making significant returns or settling down for the foreseeable future, Arianna believes overlooking the untapped value at real estate’s core could be a mistake.

“I help my buyers create a 10-30-year plan for their home to build wealth instead of just paying a mortgage,” she explains. “For my sellers, I provide them with data to help them decide whether to sell, rent, or wait for maximum return on their investment. My approach to the business is wealth-centered, which allows my new clients to see me as an honest consultant and primary resource for their real estate needs.”

As a 21-year-old rising star at Dream Realty in Nebraska, Realtor Arianna Jefferson is realizing success for buyers and sellers from various backgrounds using her qualifications and unique perspective. Above all, she’s passionate about helping military families relocate easily.

Stemming from her mother’s long tenure in the United States Air Force and the multiple ensuing moves she experienced, Arianna has settled on three indispensable steps to success in any real estate scenario:

1. Lay down your red lines

It’s important to have boundaries in any walk of life, and that extends to property, which is usually one of the most significant decisions you’ll ever make. Arianna’s first tip is never to compromise on your standards, regardless of how urgent your situation feels.

“Before you start looking for a new home, it is essential to determine your ‘Non-Negotiable List,’” the Nebraska Realtor advises. “This will help narrow your search and ensure you only look at homes that meet your needs. There is always a deal, so play the field and stay calm—desperation usually leads to a bad one.”

Knowledge alone doesn’t make someone the best real estate agent in Nebraska. They need a feel for the transaction; an intuition guiding their client to a satisfying outcome.

During her short time in the industry, Arianna has demonstrated the importance of those vital instincts, having made over $1.7m in transaction volume in her first year. Accolades have followed, such as an Ethnic Minority Outreach Scholarship from the Omaha Area Board of REALTORS® and winning Young Entrepreneur of the Year at the 2023 Common Wealth Awards. Her accomplishments derived from focusing on her passion and specialism: military moves.

2. Inquire intensely

Choosing your next home could be a decision that lasts a lifetime or at least defines the next few years of your life. So, it’s a no-brainer to learn everything you can about the process, the property, and potential pitfalls.

“Working with a real estate professional should always be an insightful experience,” Arianna says. “The combination of regional laws, home features, and finances can make real estate feel like a maze, but a good realtor can break down the barriers to understanding. Real estate is a multifaceted industry that creates a new challenge with every transaction, so seeking knowledge from the beginning can lead to a better all-around experience.”

Regarding the permanent change of station (PCS) process, Dream Realty’s 21-year-old prodigy aims to have all the answers. For her, the most crucial qualities in a Nebraska Realtor are exceptional communication and attention to detail. Retaining Military Relocation Professional (MRP) and Nebraska Finance Association certifications means Arianna can handle complex situations with a clear strategy.

3. Buy and sell on your own schedule

It’s easy to get drawn into over-the-top headlines about the state of the market and why you have to act now. But, unlike a proficient Nebraska Realtor, these stories fail to account for your circumstances, which could have a far more significant influence on the right path to follow.

“Your timing is the best timing,” Arianna affirms. “Despite the large generalizations about the real estate market, the best time to buy or sell will be based on your unique needs and desires. Looking at collective data on interest rates and home sale prices can provide a snapshot of the market, but factoring in your personal needs and goals will put things into focus.”

As a certified property manager, Arianna Jefferson’s wealth-oriented approach gives her a full view of the process, allowing her to meet today’s needs using a plan for tomorrow. Under her vision, everyone can be a successful real estate investor with the proper guidance.

However far you might feel from home, Arianna believes the right realtor can ensure you’re working towards your dream realty or your ideal investment return.
