Relevance of the National Youth Service Corps has always been subjected to a debate tussle amongst Nigerian graduates, capturing the mixture of good and ugly memories of corps members specifically where they were being posted to serve their fatherland.
However, for Omorinola Fawole, what others count as waste was what she maximized at her primary place of assignment during her service year in Lagos.
She shared her story with EnterpriseCEO, narrating how she fell in love with real estate through Country Hill, a real estate firm she works with, and how she got retained after service and rose to become the Head of Customer Relations in the company.
Speaking on how she got into real estate despite her agricultural education, Omorinola said she joined Fox Capital Investment Limited, owner of Country Hill as a corp member in 2019 when she was deployed for her youth service.
In her words, “I got an appointment with Fox Capital with no prior intention to join the company as a corps member. I never had the intention to stay in real estate but I noticed I learned more than I expected within six months I joined them, and I have been enjoying it ever since then, and it has broadened my mind.
When asked to describe her experience so far in real estate, the agricultural economist expressed satisfaction, saying her real estate‘s journey has been impactful with almost two years in real estate.
“I studied agriculture but never had a core interest in real estate, I didn’t have the knowledge but working as a real estate agent has expanded my knowledge and the experience has been great compare to what I actually imagined before going into it. With my agricultural background, I will say it is a plus”, she said.
According to Omorinola, her defining moment was when she joined real estate as an active player in her sixth month with the company as she has learned the modality in real estate investment.
She said real estate is broader than what we see and whatever career path someone chooses, “I think real estate is a necessity for every career or firm seeking career growth or expansion”
Responding if she still sees herself going back to agriculture, Omorinola instantly said yes, saying that she has been practicing and has no plans to halt that.
“Agriculture knowledge is relevant in real estate practice. It is an additional intellect to my agriculture practice, she added.
Commenting on Fox Capital‘s agricultural products and investments that are expected to be launched soon, Omorinola assured the public that the project will be a top-notch for clients and investors coming on board.
“It is still a cooking project right now and what people should expect from the project are transparency and efficient business relationship.
