I recently had an opportunity to speak with entrepreneur, coach & family man Zachary Koran.
By: Joshua Conner
Zachary Koran, is the lead broker & founder of Zach Koran Real Estate/The Zach Koran Group, entrepreneur, coach, father and Illinois Realtor at Compass based in Chicago. I am really inspired by how Koran utilizes various mediums including social media to give clients the best service.
What is a day in the life of Koran like?
“Well, I typically get up, have some coffee and take my vitamins, then I pray, mediate & do a couple of spiritual readings. Then I take a shower, get dressed and walk the dog. I have my son part-time, so sometimes, I’ll take him to school, like I did this morning. Then sometimes, I head to the office, where I make phone calls, do the prospecting part of my real estate business. In the afternoon, I show properties, and 3 or 4 days a week, I hit the gym in the morning, before I start the day as well. At night-time, I either hang out with friends, or I show property listings or I have my son,” said Koran.
What would be the title of Koran’s life story and who would play him in a movie?
“Title of my life story, good question, it would be humility drives success. Who would play me in a movie, how about, I’m going through my mental Rolodex of actors, I don’t know Hugh Jackman,” said Koran.
If Koran could leave his son one quality it would be loyalty and honesty.
“Leave my son one quality, what would it be & why, that’s a good one, I was actually thinking about this the other day. You know probably, that’s tough, I would say loyalty and honesty. I know that’s two, but loyalty and honesty go together for me,” said Koran.
“It was great, I know a lot of those guys, that were on the calendar, because we’re all in the real estate business. I know probably half of them. We had a lot of fun doing it, I’m not really a model by trade. Doing that was fun for me, it’s always fun getting your picture taken. So, I got to meet some new people, which was great, and get a chance to be part of a fundraiser. The money raised from the calendar sales, went to a non-profit,” said Koran.
How did Koran get his first tattoo?
My first tattoo, I got it at Lake Geneva, when I was 18 years old. I got my first one on my shoulder, it was my initials in Old English writings. It is now covered up, by other art, that I wanted to bring to life, you know, kind of cover it up, but that was my first one 23 years ago,” said Koran.
What are Koran’s favorite brand of boxer briefs?
“ I probably go with Calvin Klein,” he says.
What is one sentence, would Koran like people to use when describing his business Zach Koran Real Estate?
“That’s a great question, I would like people to say, he goes extremely beyond the limits to provide good service,” said Koran.
