Do you struggle with focusing on one thing at a time? At the end of the day do you wonder what you accomplished? In episode 39 of the The Executive Edge podcast Sharon Restrepo shares with us her edge in being unique. In order to be unique you have to have laser focus. You get what you focus on.
Sharon Restrepo is a full time real estate investor and Broker, buying, renovating and selling homes in South Florida. She is also a national speaker and published author, having taught thousands how to apply her principals to success in the real estate investing arena.
Sharon founded 32 West Realty, Inc. in 1995 to create real estate investment services catering to investors. Becoming an investor in 1993, Sharon found that most agents held a traditional real estate background rather than the type of training, experience or understanding an investor requires.
As a local investor, she has experienced changing market conditions, renovated many properties, managed property, bought from banks and private sellers alike, as well as purchased at local Foreclosure auction. Her years of experience in this market have given her the skills and network necessary to provide professional real estate investment services to her clients.
In addition to being a published author herself, Sharon has been sought after as a National Speaker on the popular topics of Investing in Foreclosure, Short Sales, and Real Estate Investing.

- Impossible to be the best at everything
- Laser focus on product or service
- As you focus then other products will evolve
- Business is through word of mouth
- Being transparent
- Procedures need to be clear – in writing is the best
- “Cash follows clarity”
- Lack of communication is when things go wrong
- Being accountable
- Never get to comfortable
- Never cut corners or compromise

When communication breaks down – loss of revenue occurs!
