CBN.com - Jordan Zitoun loves being a real estate agent.
Jordan says, “What I like about real estate is helping my clients find the homes of their dreams. I get a lot of joy out of that.”
Jordan started his own real estate business after college. Even though the market was tough he thought he could beat the odds.
Jordan says, “I just knew that with enough perseverance, prayer and hard work that eventually good things would happen.”
But after four months and hundreds of cold calls he only made $400 dollars and had a hard time meeting his financial obligations.
Jordan remembers, “There was definitely times where I had bills due, whether they were real estate bills or car payments. And I’d usually wait until the very last day to pay them. I was questioning my ability to provide for myself.
Jordan says, “Am I going to be able to have a family one day? Just us facing a lot of doubt.”
Jordan had been a faithful tither since high school. But now that times were tough giving money wasn’t so easy. But Jordan continued to tithe even though at times it was a sacrifice. Finally, he landed a client he had been trying to get for months.
Jordan recalls, “I woke up at 1:00 in the morning. And I looked at my phone and I had an e-mail from a client that I met from an open house. And they wanted me to sell their home and help them buy a really nice home.”
And it didn’t stop there! By the end of his first year, Jordan had almost $5 million dollars in sales. He believes it’s because of his willingness to give.
Jordan says, “I believe God wants us to give because it, is a testing of our faith.”
Later that year, Jordan married Erin and together they made giving to their church and to CBN a priority.
Erin says, “We saw that there was a need around the world and that we saw Terry in a different country with Orphan’s Promise. And that was really exciting to us.”
In fact, after they became 700 Club partners Jordan acquired even more clients.
Jordan says, “I was getting introduced to the right people that were able to share business with me, as well as meeting new clients.”
Then they increased their giving to the chairman’s circle level. In Jordan’s second year in business, sales topped 6 million dollars. And this year they expect it to be even more. Today Erin is also a real estate agent and the couple is debt free. They believe it’s because of one simple truth.
Erin says, “I think that it’s just a great lesson that we can all learn is to tithe and to have reciprocity. Because by doing that, you’re going to be blessed in so many ways.”
Jordan says, “If you will just trust God with that first step, I believe He will radically, bless your life and provide for you in ways that you never thought were possible.”
