"You have a great background for real estate." This was the comment that started my real estate career. A client of mine from my "previous life" stated this to me over lunch one day. She said it at just the right time. I had been mulling over this idea for awhile and was ready to make the jump. On the way home that night I casually asked my husband "Do you think I would be great as a Realtor?" He never slowed down when he said "Yes, that is exactly what you need to do."
I started previewing homes at the ripe old age of 8 with my mother. We would go out every Saturday and check out all the new homes being built. We would critique the house and decide what could be done better. This was our time together. We loved it.
I went to college with the idea of being a journalist. Then changed majors several times and finally landed on interior design and marketing.
With my interior design knowledge I sold commercial construction materials (handrails, skylights, louvers, expansion joint covers, fire extinguishers, markerboards and the list goes on and on) for over 13 years. This is where my client materialized my dream. In 2003 I had just finished helping her and 3 of her friends all buy homes. I went with them through the process of finding the "right" home for them, worked with them on their mortgage and even helped them at the closing table. The real estate agent said I was already a natural since I was doing her job.
So I jumped in. Life was great and then the market shifted. As I went in and heard the heartache I knew I had to help. I became one of the first agents to offer assistance with Short Sales. I became a trainer and mentor to many other agents during this time.
My husband and I are both full time Realtors and stayed that way through the entire shift. Several years later I am still loving my life. This was a passion of mine that I get to enjoy everyday. Thank you for letting me live my passion.
