RELOCATE & Stay Great: How The Salgado Home & Relocation Services Team Helps Others Move Coast to Coast and Still Continue Their DreamOctober 14, 2016
with Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes
Fay Salgado, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Fay Salgado Home had a vision that truly came to life after traveling the country with her husband Richard “Big Daddy” Salgado, speaking with countless athletes, front office people, management, entertainers and business men and women, that the need for an all-inclusive, professional relocation and organizational service became apparent. To fill that need, Fay launched Fay Salgado Home LLC and today I interview Fay through the word RELOCATE to give you a unique perspective on how to stay great when you move from state to state.
I was a former hockey wife for 9 years and this is what has made this journey easy for me. I moved twice a year during trades, minor leagues to the pros and back. Having to move to Canada every summer during the off season with two children in tow gives me the inside track to identify with athletes, families and especially their significant other with constant life changes in every scenario.
E is for Experience: What expertise do you bring to the table that makes your vision able?
We have a team of experts that we built relationships with over the past 20 years. Rather it be real estate brokers, shipping or insurance to risk management we know and trust our team members with our clients.
L is for Learn. After you started this venture what do you know now that you didn’t know before?
Building clientele isn’t just about your expertise. It’s about having a relationship of trust which leads to another client. This takes time to formulate especially working with celebrities and their families.
I recently started developing “Salgado Home Collection” and my goal is to launch our candle collection for the 2016 Holiday season and help support Brain Aneurysms awareness by giving a percentage of sales to a charity. After the launch … honesty my vision has no end. With passion and drive the Salgado Home Collection will lead where God wants it to be.
C is for Caution. What are obstacles that people who have to move face and how does your company provide solutions to their problems?
In life we all have obstacles rather it be a divided family, a loss of a family member, joining two families in one home, divorce, financial woes, job relocation, life insurance or health insurance and it always something and somewhere down the line that we all have to identify with one or more of these scenarios.
My services provide comfort for their situation that can or could be over whelming at that time of their move. I guess I kind of look at it as “Every thing will be ok” and there is no better feeling. Example: When of one of my client has insurance needs I refer them to Richard Salgado of www.coastaladvisorsllc.com who has a credible name in name in the industry “Big Daddy” that most know and feel confident with his risk management services. Our network also extends to our clients when they have housing or development needs and we connect them with Elite Real Estate Brokers.
A is Aware. If someone has never moved before and especially not coast to coast what are some other things that they need to be aware of before contacting a company that does what you do?
Anytime you’re doing business with a company you are not familiar with there will always be some sort of risk factor. The first question I would ask is if the company is insured and bonded. If your dealing with an estate, I would ask how much their company is bonded for to make sure it can cover the value of your move and assets. If hiring outside sources to come into your home to organize, make sure they to are insured and bonded. Injuries do happen, things break and you don’t want to find yourself in a situation that could lead you to a lawsuit.
If you’re not buying and renting when you are moving into your next home make sure you always research who you’re renting from. Do background work on the home to make sure the property is not under foreclosure or prior law suits with other tenants. If you’re working with a management company that is locating a rental for you, it’s not usually their responsibility to research public records and investigate past history. The other advice would be to research your community, value of homes and schools.
T is Time. How long does it normally take to help someone move coast to coast and why is this the right time to be in business?
Each client has different needs and services required so to put a time line on a job is almost impossible. We treat our clients like family and a job is never done until they feel the comfort with our service. This is the main reason why I love to book in advance and work with exclusive clientele throughout the sports industry. Each subcontractor signs a nondisclosure contract to assure our clients privacy
E is for Excellence. How important is greatness and what do you want others to say once you have their move out if the way?
I want my clients to say, ummmm nothing and to just see them with a honest pure smile is good enough for me. It’s a great feeling to see a happy home and know I was a part of the process.
What else would you like to mention before we go?

Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes gives a DERRICK Interview by asking 7 questions through each letter of his first name to give you an insightful perspective from other experts, entrepreneurs, celebrities and up and coming super stars.
Today’s DERRICK Interview is with Preston ‘Prizzie” Reid who is an American mixing/recording engineer and record producer based in Chicago, Illinois, Atlanta, Georgia and Los Angeles, California. As a native of Chicago, Prizzie was born the son of a musician and was introduced to music as well as electronics at a very young age. Preston spent his teenage years developing his skillset, soon partnering with Space Jam Jaye as a collaborative duo. Shortly after attending Columbia College Chicago, Prizzie set sights for the music scene in Los Angeles where he quickly gained a name for himself not only in music, but in film audio and scoring as well under CannonVision among many other film production companies. Since then he has been primarily working out of his private studio in Chicago along with remote studios throughout Atlanta where he has mixed and/or produced records for Hip Hop, R&B, Pop, and several other genres for artists including Space Jam Jaye, T.I, Energe, Fetty Wap, Scotty ATL, Duru Tha King, Mykko Montana, Cam’ron, Cash Out, Gorilla Zoe, Ab Soul, Stuey Rock, Gucci Mane, Jerm 9V, Slide Dillinger, Zeus, Tim Stacks (W), 2 Chainz, Cap 1, Ronn Makk, Breezy Montana, Yo Gotti, GBE, various film credits and many other very talented artists and producers along with a variety of film credits.
D is for Dream. What is your dream, goals or what have you achieved?
My dream is simple. Inspire. That’s what helped me get to where i am so far. And what propels me to keep reaching. I think people can achieve great things as long as we keep the fire burning and inspiring each other.
E is for Education. What is your educational background and how do you use it daily?
Well, as far as music goes….I attended Columbia College in Chicago, IL. But as far as where I’ve actually developed, it’s a little tricky. I grew up heavily rooted in church. I mean every Sunday (and Wednesday). So as far as watching what music can do to people and how it can move people emotionally…that’s where i learned it. As far as having the “ear”, I think it was genetically passed down by my father who is a lifelong musician and exposed me to a ton of music early on in life. But as far as overall creativity, I think life and living through different experiences is the best teacher.
R is for Resource. What resources do you bring to the table that makes you unique or stand out?
I think the fact that i was exposed to so many diverse situations throughout my childhood, naturally makes me versatile and adaptable. My favorite music ranges from modern hip-hop to Zedd to Ingrid Michaelson to The Fray to Hoobastank to Earth Wind & Fire to Jim Morrison to Frank Sinatra. I can’t get enough of music. I love it all.
R is for Ready. When did you realize you were ready for what you are doing now?
Honestly, i don’t know if i was ever ready. I think it’s more so a matter of being ready to embrace whatever you are faced with and having an optimistic attitude.
I is for Individual. Name at least one individual in your network that others should learn more about and why?
Sounds crazy, but my Uncle Josef Cannon. He’s an actor living out in LA. He’s one of the craziest and most brutally honest people i know. But i think when you can get past his blunt approach, you’ll realize that there’s a method to his madness.
C is for Challenges. What challenges have you had to overcome?
Where do i start?? Everyday is a challenge. I think what a lot of people may not realize is that following a dream can be an extremely lonely path at times. It’s like GPS’ing a location and realizing the only way to get there from where you are at is through a long dark dusty back road. To make it even more tough, sometimes the weather may be bad and you can’t see what’s in front of you nor do you have anyone else’s taillights to guide you. But you know that you just need to keep going. You know you’ll get there as long as you don’t stop.
K is for Key. What keys to success can you leave for upcoming entrepreneurs and leaders?
I think to me at this point, the biggest key is to lead by example. Be brave and bold in what you want to do. I admire people like Ken Lewis, Miles Walker, Leslie Braithwate (i probably spelled that wrong) etc. I admire them not only for their skill set and ability, but more so for their mind and hustle. i’ve learned more from these people when in comes to taking care of business and doing good work. That you are a walking product and brand. At this point, almost EVERYBODY is good at what they do. We all have the same resources. I think what ultimately sets them apart is their sense of maniacal work ethic and professionalism.
