We’re thrilled to feature another inspiring member of our community, Jacob Henderson, leader of The Henderson Team at Citi Habitats. In addition to his work as a real estate professional, Jacob is an impressive visual artist, whose large-scale works (like the one above) can be seen throughout the city. Learn more about this talented individual in our interview below…
What is the coolest thing you are working on?
I’m currently gut renovating a two-family home in Ridgewood with my fiancée.
Who inspires you?
Arnold Schwarzenegger. I’m inspired by his professional journey and his pursuit of the American Dream. I don’t agree with all of his personal choices or motivations but they were his to make and he pursued them despite the judgment of others. He created his own path from start to finish.
What is your secret talent no one knows about?
I’m a visual artist who focuses on large scale works.
If you could be any animal, which would you be?
What 3 traits define you?
Persistent, loyal, and straightforward.
What advice do you have for new agents in the business?
If you don’t know the answer to something, don’t lie. Your client will respect honesty over anything else. There is no reason to be afraid of what you don’t know, I still learn something new in every deal. And most importantly, always under promise and over deliver.
