EP 324: Making History By Selling Her Home via NFTNov 25, 2022
Technology is taking more relevance in fields that we never thought it would. One of those is real estate, and Leslie Alessandra took the opportunity right away as being the first woman to ever sold a home in the US using NFT technology. Now, this amazing entrepreneur and expert in blockchain technology and cryptocurrency has co-founded and is the CEO of DeFi Unlimited, a cryptocurrency business committed to creating products and software that ease the barrier of entry into the crypto space for businesses and facilitate B2B crypto transactions. She is a Florida native who actively invests in both real estate and cryptocurrency and believes in the benefits of blockchain technology for both industry efficiency and humanitarian causes. Leslie previously worked for the federal government, where she was first exposed to this innovative technology.
Seeing the benefits of the crypto industry, she decided to leave her government position and pursue a career in entrepreneurship and philanthropy. Her purpose and passion are to help children and families in need around the globe. She has traveled internationally supporting the abolishment of child sex trafficking and has helped provide medical care to rural areas. Leslie currently spends her time residing between St. Petersburg and Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
In this episode of The Real Estate InvestHER Show, we’re going to learn about her views, her achievements using blockchain technology, and her vision of the future of the Real Estate industry.
· “I think I'm learning now in my older age to start to say no. And really working, diligently, for that work-life balance.” (07:33 - 07:43)
· “The real power of NFTs comes in other types of utility, especially when we're talking about industries and actually revolutionizing industries. You can empower an NFT to provide access, to provide membership, they can be used for marketing, they can be used to hold ownership rights.” (11:20 - 11:46)
· “Once I started to understand the real power behind blockchain, it was like your mind just starts to expand and, all the light bulbs start going off. (12:41 - 12:53)
· “I think the biggest power of blockchain for not only the real estate industry but in so many industries are efficiency and protection against fraud”. (20:04 - 21:13)
· “The great thing about NFTs and blockchain […] It's transparency. It's immutable”. (28:26 – 28:37)
· “And [to me] that lesson was you hire out the things you're not the strongest at, and you focus on what you are strong at. […] You know, you focus on that and that's kind of like that sausage-making part of any entrepreneurial endeavor (36:18 - 36:35)
