Eugene Cusie

Realtor®, Xcellence Realty

Eugene Cusie made a career change from law enforcement into real estate three years ago so  he could savor more family time with his young sons. 

“I love it; I enjoy every step of it,” he says of being a Realtor. “One of the things I want to do is show people how easy it is to be homeowners. You don’t have to save up for 15 to 20 years to buy a house, and it’s possible to do it with very little money out of pocket.”

He adds that one doesn’t have to have a perfect credit score to buy a home. Lenders have approved buyers with a 620 credit score. 

“People are amazed that the process could be so simple and that it doesn’t have to be time consuming,” says Eugene. 

Serving first-time homebuyers has become his specialty, and there are programs, including Florida Bond, designed to help buyers. “I’ve assisted 15 families so far with at least $500 out of pocket to homeownership.”

Eugene says some buyers are elated to discover a mortgage payment can be less than what they were paying in rent. “And the best thing about real estate is seeing someone walk into their perfect home.”
