Keller Williams Heritage

How did you get your job?

I came across this position on the CORE website – it was right up my alley both in terms of the area of law in which I wanted to gain experience and in its location being in San Antonio. After applying, I was invited to an interview, and a few days later I was informed that I had been offered the role for the summer. The call came in while some friends and I were studying for our constitutional law final, which made for a much-welcomed study break.

What is the most valuable thing you’ve learned at this job?

Throughout the summer, I have had the privilege of shadowing Keller Williams Heritage’s general counsel, St. Mary’s Law alumnus Garret Brandt (J.D. ’95) and I have had the opportunity to research various real estate topics. I have deeply appreciated his mentorship and his willingness to let me experience so much of his day-to-day work which has been incredibly valuable. In addition, working so closely with my mentor has allowed me to see the trust and confidence that is placed in attorneys which extends beyond just the legal role that lawyers play. My mentor plays a pivotal role in the company serving not only as a legal scholar but also as a confidant and advisor to many. His example both inspires me and provides a model for my future career in law.

What do/did you like most about your job?

Getting to work and meeting the Keller Williams Heritage employees and agents have been my favorite part of this internship by far! Keller Williams Heritage feels like a family, and I feel blessed to have been invited to be a part of that family this summer. Everybody has been so welcoming. This internship has not only allowed me to receive excellent real estate law experience but also to gain insight into the workings of a successful real estate brokerage that serves the community at large and seeks to develop its employees and prepare them for success.
