Coolest Entrepreneur: Aaron Drussel

Facebooktwitterpinterestmail

Company Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate Momentum, Pleasant Grove
Hometown Alpine

Talk about a household name. Aaron Drussel’s career as a Realtor began in 2001, and he quickly catapulted to a real (estate) legend. In 2015, his vision grew into wanting to teach and train the next generation. That passion led to Drussel franchising his independent brokerage, and three years later stepping into the principal broker role. In 2021, he acquired and merged with another real estate brokerage, rebranding to Better Homes & Garden Real Estate Momentum. The company has grown to a collection of almost 200 real estate entrepreneurs, where Drussel leads with smarts, heart, and stand-up comedy. (Not to mention his soon-to-launch podcast has a pun-tastic name — Drussel Sprouts — which always wins cool points with the Q.)   

WORD.

Embrace the uncomfortable.

COOLEST WORD IN THE WORLD

Momentum.

WORST WORD IN THE WORLD

Can’t.

COOLEST WORK ACCOMPLISHMENT

Besides the boxes of trophies in my garage, this last year our brokerage qualified as Founders’ Circle, which is a top 20 company across the entire Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate network.

  

COOLEST LIFE ACCOMPLISHMENT

My wife and I were told we couldn’t have children. Now I’m a father to my four kids, with adoption being a critical part of our journey. Also, I’m continually finding ways to push myself to become a better version of me. This journey has included physically gruelling SEALFit challenges, becoming a national business coach with ClubWealth, and embracing comedic musical improv. Performing improv the past few years has been a fun outlet for creativity, and it also kicked off my passion for standup comedy.
