Nicola Domenic Vescio a teacher with an MBA, a production manufacturing background, and a former restaurateur never, that is until he became a real estate entrepreneur that specializes in the renting and restoring of both single family and multi-residential properties.
He has spent over 20 years trying to understand the game of architecture as he grew up in a family full of real estate agents who often wear boots to work. Today Dom has the hands of a man who works in an industry after years of hard work and hard lessons.
Being a teacher gave Dom the skills of becoming an entrepreneur. He gained practical knowledge, skills, and values from being in education. Being a teacher also requires anyone to put in a lot of time and effort to do things right. It gives them the chance to see the world and develop new relationships with people they meet while working in schools. It means putting in effort just to do the job well. The key question is then whether people are willing to put in this effort in order to become an entrepreneur like Domenic Vescio after a career in teaching.
Why Domenic Vescio choose teaching?
Finding passion in a profession that does not align with what you know is not easy. But it is quite simple as Domenic told us that he does simple things like: Take care of what you love. Show your students, acquaintances, and colleagues that you are alive, that you care about them, that you celebrate what you do.
Domenic Vescio says “I was always drawn to students who were cast off or made to feel school wasn’t for them. I call these students college bound kids – those who may not have seen the benefit of education or understood how to learn within the construct of our education system. Truth be told, our system is not for every mind. I know this first hand. I thus became very motivated in finding minds who could in fact absorb, but needed to learn how to absorb a certain way. There is nothing more gratifying than turning on the light for an individual who has the hunger to be more than they thought they could ever be! I sought those students. I sought those moments and I did so because in my world, this is what a teacher needs to do. They need to find a way through and once they find it, once they drink the Kool-Aid, there is no stopping their potential.”
Domenic Vescio and his path to Real Estate.
But it was never just about making money. Starting a business gave Domenic an opportunity to rediscover the joy of work and the sense of community that are often lost in the hustle and bustle of daily life. Real estate is one of those businesses that allows you to combine your love for property with the skillset needed for a successful business. It gives you the chance to earn money while helping others get a foothold in their communities. For more than 20 years, Domenic Vescio has been achieving his goals through real estate investment and development. In that time, he’s helped hundreds of people learn about the industry and sold homes to investors across the country.
When talking to Domenic, he mentioned that “Real estate is not for everyone. You need to be willing to put in the time and effort required to get to where you want to go. Real estate buying/selling involves risk unlike other forms of investing where you can leave your capital at the end of the day and walk away unscathed.”
We asked Mr. Vescio, what are things to consider before taking this path in business “There are many things to consider when you’re looking at properties such as price, type of property, school district, traffic congestion, local conditions and more. To truly understand the possibilities and risks associated with real estate investing, it’s best to do your own research and speak with other people who have made the same or similar decisions”
