The stigma against the gay, lesbian, and transgender communities has started to fade, partly due to mentor-mentee relationships. More successful LGBTQ+ people serving as role models would be a massive boon to the community. Eli Delgado and Mike Vizcarra are contributing to creating this representation by simply being themselves in the corporate world, and their efforts are paying off in other areas as a result.
Eli Delgado and Mike Vizcarra, who recently tied the knot in November, are married and work together in the real estate and loan industries. Their success in the industry has given them the confidence to speak openly about their sexual orientation, and they are helping to bring the LGBTQ+ community more into the spotlight. They also have a mentoring program for people in the LGBTQ+ community who want to launch their own businesses but don’t have the capital to do so.
Eli and Mike are committed to making the real estate business more welcoming to LGBTQ+ members. In most cases, clients of real estate agents prefer to work with a representative who fully understands their needs and goals. A special bond between the two parties is formed. Eli and Mike’s work has benefited countless individuals, both within and outside the LGBTQ+ community. They own M&E Real Estate Services, which has a staff of twenty-two experts. Eli also owns a stake in another business venture besides the family’s real estate company: The Mortgage Guys. There’s more than just a professional connection between Eli and Mike.
They have been friends and working partners for almost a decade. They were successful, thanks in part to their unique way of thinking. When asked how vital mindset was to their success, they said, “It was everything. As such, it is easier to stand up to critics of all kinds.” Eli and Mike triumphed over extreme adversity to reach their goals, including low socioeconomic status and prejudice. Progressive social change has led to the widespread acknowledgment of this dynamic duo for the formidable force that it always has been.
“When it comes to the gay community, we offer our services with a huge wow factor due to our diversity, sense of style, commitment to growth, and understanding of the millennial generation. Our experience in a wide range of real estate business fields, an extensive network of real estate professionals, and familiarity with a wide range of loan products make us stand out,” they said, explaining why their company’s services are superior to those of rival companies.
Eli and Mike suggest that those interested in entrepreneurship seek a mentor and enroll in relevant courses. According to them, “Starting a business requires a lot of help from established professionals, private lessons, practice, and a name in the field.” “We aren’t interested in being the analysts or mentors who lay the groundwork for the data industry so that others can profit from our efforts. More narrowly, in terms of the results that can be achieved through adopting a more optimistic perspective, method, approach, etc.,” they continued.
Eli and Mike are killing it in real estate, and their success is primarily due to their honesty and transparency. Getting the Instagram verification (the blue check mark) is a short-term priority for Eli and Mike as they look to expand their business. They’re actively courting A-listers and affluent customers because they appreciate their value. Your customer base respects and appreciates you when you are authentic and true to yourself, as seen with Eli and Mike. Being oneself and taking pride in that fact is crucial in today’s business world.
