What do you love most about the real estate industry?
I love and am highly motivated by the many facets of contract negotiating. I thoroughly enjoy working hard for someone and helping to get them the reward of their new home!
What inspired you or led you to become a licensed real estate agent?
I always enjoyed my own personal times of buying/selling/building/renting homes for 25+ years. Having that practical experience coupled with the passion I had as a personal trainer for many years and helping my clients realize their goals/dreams, seemed a natural transition for me and so I steered in the direction to becoming a real estate agent.
