Title: From Broke Real Estate Agent to Viral Real Estate Social Media King, Eric Simon Shares His Entrepreneurial Journey Full of Humor, Resilience & Triumph
Before he is known as @TheBrokeAgent on every social media platform, he is first a licensed real estate agent. Eric Simon, being a newly licensed real estate agent in Los Angeles, had no idea what to do. He cold-called, door knocked and sat dead open houses twice a week to no success. So, he did what he always did when he fails at something: he made fun of it. Eric escaped to social media as @TheBrokeAgent where he began posting the inner monologue of an anonymous, struggling real estate agent. This inner monologue, being relatable, has since blown up and grown quickly as the voice stood out amongst an oversaturated marketplace of luxury agents, sales gurus, and assholes.
After six years of memes, Gifs, skits, comics, blogs, and now a podcast, the Broke Agent brand has evolved into a media company with well over half a million followers across all major platforms. His goal is to make real estate agents laugh through the daily stress of the industry and also help improve their business through the community and content platform. Today, Eric continues to sell real estate on the Westside of Los Angeles and run the daily operations of The Broke Agent. His focus is on growing the brand and continuing to be the go-to source for real estate entertainment, podcasting, marketing, and eventually news.
Listen to how Eric Simon turned his life upside down from being a clueless Real Estate agent to becoming a social media king through resilience triumph and most importantly, humor on this latest episode of the UnderDog show: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/underdog/id1534385651

Pamela Bardhi great influencer
I am a fun of Pamela Bardhi. She is a great influencer and powerful woman. I really enjoy her podcast episodes. Very informative and so enjoy full .
It’s like autobiography in real time!
Back in the day, you had to wait for someone to write their autobiography to learn what made them great…often many years after their methods are out of date. What a cool concept! Underdog Podcast helps listeners avoid mistakes of others NOW. There is wisdom in learning from others…those who do not internalize history and lessons learned are doomed to repeat them.
Kudos to Pamela for hosting such an amazing and transformative podcast. I love listening to all of the people who share their strength, courage and wisdom about moving from obstacles to opportunity. Everyone needs to hear these stories.
