How did you get started in real estate?
I was working as a receptionist at a mortgage company and soon realized that Real Estate was a career and an industry that you can ride with successfully if you are savvy with its opportunities. I obtained my license 10 years ago and I fall in love with Real Estate over and over again.


Was it difficult to do all the classes and get licensed?
I had wonderful mentors. The state exam was not difficult, but then again, I studied A LOT! I appreciate all the knowledge I have gained throughout the years which have helped me tremendously in servicing my clients the best way possible.


What area of the real estate job do you enjoy the most?
I love showing homes and being able to hand a family the keys to their new home; it's an honor to be able to be part of such event.


What are common problems in the real estate market?
Presently, it's what we would call a seller's market. There are many buyers for one house and first time buyers are faced with competing with investors. As property values are very affordable and rates are at an all time low, i believe this year IS the best time to purchase.


How do you market yourself and your Real Estate Services?
Most of my clients are refereed to me by former clients. I am very fortunate to have built relationships and be able to continue to service others with their Real Estate needs. I also send hand written letters to families who are experiencing a hardship and need to explore all their options. Social media is the most efficient way to have others learn about how you can assist them.


What are some goals you have in your career for this year?
To help my clients find the perfect home! To help those families who need an exit strategy explore their options regarding their home. On a personal level, I am looking forward to purchasing residential income properties this year.
