Chuck Fazio, "Iron Sharpens Iron" Associate Broker/ International Team Leader at eXp Realty shares his incredible story on Global Luxury Real Estate Mastermind with Michael Valdes Podcast #165



Chuck Fazio and his wife Angela literally went from nothing and almost leaving real estate to building a team of over 900 people, which has now grown to over 4300 people. Chuck's story is a movie. He was a bouncer at night clubs which is where he said he first learned his negotiating skills and then moved to Arizona to "save himself from himself.". This was perhaps one of the most candid interviews I have ever done on the podcast to date. I am thankful to Chuck for his candor and for sharing his story, which I am certain will help many.



More About Chuck Fazio: 



The Fazios’ story starts in 2001, and it follows an early theme experienced by many successful real estate agents and brokers: Things didn’t go well initially.



“We were complete failures and were literally about to move in with his parents,” said Angela. Eventually, the couple started finding their footing and gained confidence, starting Revelation Real Estate in 2005. 



These days, Revelation Real Estate is consistently recognized as a top-producing brokerage in the greater Phoenix area, which also includes areas to the east such as Chandler, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Gilbert, Scottsdale, Queen Creek, and Maricopa.



The Fazios are a power couple in this real estate market and have attracted numerous awards and accolades over the years. They have also authored the book, “
Mastering Your Real Estate Career: Your Blueprint to Move from Struggle to Success
,” which currently has a 5-star rating on Amazon.
