When it comes to business, people define success as growing their company and earning huge revenue. While most people agree, Terry Faiz has a different idea of what success ought to be. Under her brand, Miss I Flip Bricks, she shares her definition of success with other people looking to follow in her steps.
Terry Faiz is a realtor, account manager, and real estate investor born and raised in Queens, New York City. Her parents were immigrants from Afghanistan who fled the country when the war started to tear up their normal lives. They found the perfect chance to start over in New York City, where they could give Terry the opportunity for a brighter future.
For as long as she could remember, Terry had always wanted to build her own brand. She knew that to do so, she needed to put the work in and deliver results. To start, Terry decided to work in finance. She amassed experience in finance for more than ten years with a break in between. For three years, Terry served in the United States Military. Between 2009 and 2012, she served three tours working as a linguist during Operation: Enduring Freedom, or OEF.
Terry Faiz would later return and focus on her dream of building a brand. With experience from finance and discipline learned from her time in the military, she decided to go back to studies and prepare for her plans. Terry enrolled in Queens College, taking Economics between 2014 to 2016.
When she completed her studies, Terry started working as a realtor at Infiniti Homes. As a licensed real estate agent, she specialized in rentals and FHA Buyers, walking customers through the home buying process from start to finish. During that time, Terry also founded Afghans of North America, a virtual community organization specializing in international relief projects in remote areas of Afghanistan. Using social media platforms, Terry created an online network of Afghan-Americans/Canadians, fostering a safe space to engage in dialogue and develop solutions to help the Afghan people.
After nearly three years with Infiniti Homes, Terry Faiz left to join Voro NYC, another real estate agency based in New York. Here Terry continues to work as an account relationship manager, providing bridge loans and hard money finances for real estate investors.
When the new year rolled in, the pandemic struck, and businesses endured trying times. Never one to back down from a challenge, Terry refused to let the pandemic slow down her plans as she established her brand, Miss I Flip Bricks.
Through Miss I Flip Bricks, Terry Faiz can use her experience as she specializes in off-market real estate acquisitions and provides financing for such projects. She helps established and first-time real estate investors who wish to build wealth through acquisitions.
Having experience in finance and real estate, Terry Faiz is confident that her competitors can reach her level. She is also unique as her many successes don’t come from a drive to gain revenue. Instead, Terry is successful because of the relationships she builds in her business.
Terry Faiz is confident that Miss I Flip Bricks will thrive to become a streamlined process of fix and flips throughout the tri-state-area in the years to come despite the pandemic going on.
