We had the good fortune of connecting with Destiny Roxas and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Destiny, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
My work-life balance is blended, and I like it like that. I develop relationships with my clients and colleagues, I view them as people and I don’t have to feign interest in their lives. Many of my close friends are within my industry. Real estate is social, and networking while creating trusting relationships is so critical for success. If I’m not working, or have a current project on hand, I’m pretty miserable – I need the mental stimulation and constant challenges to feel fulfilled.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I’m a Real Estate Agent, recently having transitioned over to the Fredy Garcia Group at Compass. I help both buyers and sellers reach their real estate goals, and I love what I do. There are significant challenges, particularly with the lack of inventory during this pandemic, but things are really starting to normalize… open houses coming back, as well as networking events. I also still work for the Brandon Martinez 24/7 Team, which requires me to develop and nurture business partnerships, create marketing and video campaigns, write scripts and newsletters, edit videos, and create social media content. I helped build his brand, and now I’ve begun helping other friends/industry professionals with their own branding and marketing. I am a hard worker, and throw myself head first into everything that I do. My efforts are never without careful thought and consideration, and I derive a great sense of accomplishment when I hit my goals. I make time for the things that matter, and as life goes on, I’ve only gotten better at taking on challenges.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Interesting question, I have a social media video series called “Sights of San Diego”, where I take my audience on adventures throughout the city, highlighting neighborhoods, real estate, and beloved landmarks – many notable spots I’d personally recommend include Cabrillo National Monument, Old Town, Mission Trails, and of course, all the great food in downtown and Little Italy. One of the big takeaways from 2020 was definitely picnics with my friends – there really is nothing like sitting in a park or at the beach, and really soaking in the environment. Balboa Park has been picnic central for me and my close circle.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to dedicate my growth and success since the last article, to Brandon Martinez, Rachel Gonzalez and Fredy Garcia. They have helped me grow in ways I didn’t think were possible, and I don’t tell them enough how much they mean to me both professionally and personally. I could not have achieved everything I’ve done without their support and belief in me. The mentoring, advice, and encouragement has truly helped bring me to where I am today.
