Welcome back to our Get to know Kingdom First Realty series. This week I have the pleasure of introducing you to Kahdijah Bell Taylor, Realtor with a Smile.
Kahdijah: My daughter, Kaiya, who is also known as my assistant, motivates me to work hard. She is my reason to continue to be the best I can be in life. I am also motivated by my immediate family – mother, father and all of my sisters and brothers.
Kahdijah: My clients. I feel like I am creating a beautiful quilt – each patch is a story of my experience with them. I get an opportunity to be a part of their lives and part of one of the biggest decisions they will make in their life…buying or selling their homes. My favorite part is closing day and seeing the smile on their faces when I hand them keys for buyers and for sellers to say “We did it, your house is now sold.”
And I love looking at homes. The construction of them, all of interesting details I find, the beauty I discover in them. It is so much fun!
Kahdijah: My very first closing! I needed to prove to myself I could do this and do it well. And I did. The happiness my clients had that day…I was searching for that feeling for years. It feels so good to work hard and know at the end you are doing good for someone else. Fills my heart!
Kahdijah: My daughter, Kaiya. She is such a character. And my family. Funny group of loving individuals.
Kahdijah: An entrepreneur. I had a little party planning business at the age of 9 or 10. My best friend and I use to host neighborhood dance parties. Our parties were so popular!
Kahdijah: I like watching the Olympics. Those athletes work so hard…the time, dedication and work to get to that moment. Truly inspiring. And I like watching the big final games like the Super Bowl, NBA Finals, or US Open Finals. You know both teams or individuals worked so hard to get there…and now they have to bring it to win.
Kahdijah: I love photography and taking scenic photos. Makes me so happy inside to capture a beautiful photo.
Kahdijah: Thanksgiving…I am all about family!
Kahdijah: Family dinners and get togethers…. I love hanging out with them.
Kahdijah: I have so many amazing childhood memories! I can’t pick one. All I can say is that I was truly blessed!
Kahdijah: My favorite – Social Studies
Kahdijah: I think about staying on my path and keeping my focus on the important things in my life, my daughter of course, and how to accomplish the things I want in my life.
Kahdijah: My first job after graduating from Monmouth University with a degree in Marketing was an Editorial Assistant for Prentice Hall, an education publisher. I have text books with my name in them.
Kahdijah: Thanksgiving was always special. Spending time with family is so awesome! We still watch the Macys Thanksgiving Day parade together and then go visit family at different houses and gather all kinds of food!
