Meet Holly Hettinga, Marketing Coordinator with The Solomon Group – Coldwell Banker Action.
Hi there! I’m Holly and I’m the one writing this blog today. I am Austin’s marketing coordinator and sister. Our team wants to highlight each of our members because each of us is so important to serving our clients and our team.
I started working with Austin in March of 2018, but let’s rewind a bit more. After graduating from D.C. Everest, I attended UW- Eau Claire for two years and graduated from UW-Stout with my degree in digital marketing technology.
After graduating, or actually during, I worked at D.R. Horton – America’s Largest Home Builder, in the Minneapolis – Minnesota Division office. My Digital Marketing Specialist role offered a ton of great learning experience and was fun, but after few years in a larger city (truly just the suburbs), I moved back to Wausau.
Shortly after my return, I started working with Austin primarily assisting with his paperwork. I was fully licensed at the time (and still am), so that came in handy for us both. The market was hot and we were running 24/7 it seemed like.
In 2017, Austin did 117 transactions on his own. In 2018, we just about doubled that with over 200. We can all agree Austin is a great Realtor, but together we were able to accomplish more and provide better service. Austin is still a rockstar!
After a year, I got very burned out and left my full-time roll with Austin later to come back after about 8 months… That was not an easy decision because I had a great job, great colleagues and didn’t know if making the transition back was the right move.
The truth is, you never know 100% of most things, you know about 90%, and it takes faith to fill in that 10% gap.
So, I went for it! It’s been great working alongside him (again) since September 2019. A lot of people ask me what I do and that’s a great question! I primarily assist with the marketing of Austin’s listings, his digital marketing, traditional signage marketing and other operational team duties as needed for the team to operate smoothly. We have a great team locally and our Coldwell office as well. So I enjoy both the work I do and the people I get to work with. Not to mention the clients we get to help, they are so great, that’s an added bonus!
We are always looking for good agents to join our team, so if you or someone you know is interested in real estate or is already licensed and wants to join a great team, contact Austin Solomon at (715) 212-4693 | firstname.lastname@example.org.
