In addition, he played baseball in 2 countries, Dominican Republic and Mexico. With over 9 years of baseball experience, Reifer knew it was time to hang the cleats and bring forth-new ventures. This meant gearing towards his other passion, real estate. An entrepreneur by nature, his passion for homes grew from influences of his father, who has been a general contractor for over 35 years and built the home Adam and his sisters grew up in. In every way, he has been drawn to every aspect of the industry; from architecture, history and most importantly helping people find their dream home. He gained attributes of discipline and determination from baseball, which he carries into everything he works towards. Reifer will be graduating with a BA in Business Management from UCR this year, along with obtaining his contractors license to add to his many hats. Adam is passionate about everything he does, his team mates used to call him “La Máquina” which translate to “The Machine” because he never stops. There’s only one thing he loves more than homes and that is his wife and son. He’s crazy about them. “When I need motivation, all I have to do is look over at them, and I’m right back where I need to be” (Adam). In terms of what gets Adam excited about real estate, it’s the negations. “I guess it’s the athlete in me, I always want to win, no matter what it takes I make sure I’m always getting my clients the best possible deal, no matter what. Knowing they put their trust in me to take care of one of the biggest investments of their lives, is a huge deal that I don’t take lightly”.
