Beside the Point

When people think of me, I want them to think of me as dedicated, hardworking and caring.

To prepare for the next day, each night I get all my work ready and in order, have appointments set and try to get a good night’s sleep.

The business motto that has served me best is Never Say “Can’t.” Always believe in yourself and you can do anything.

The accomplishment of which I am proudest is my children. They are hardworking, caring, loving and amaze me every day!

If I could time travel, I would travel to the Victorian Era to be part of the Industrial Revolution with all the new innovations and the Renaissance Era for the art, sculptures and plays by Shakespeare.

The three most important rules to live by are: Family is always first; treat others the way you want to be treated; and believe in yourself, work hard and follow your dreams.

Something that most people do not know or realize about the real estate industry is how much is involved in each transaction. There are a lot of moving parts to each contract that most clients never know about because we do our best to keep each transaction smooth and stress-free.

On a cool, spring day off from work, I can be found outside in the sunshine, working in the yard or going to festivals.

When I think of relaxation, I think of being with family and friends, unplugged from all electronics. On a beach somewhere is always good too!

A hint for Real Estate AGENTS: This business can be very competitive but I think the really good agents are the ones who listen and help others, whether that means other agents, clients or business associates.

I am most grateful to have my family in my life. Without their support and help, I could not do all that I do. And, I truly have the BEST job.

For me, the first hints of spring include warmer temperatures, greener trees, flowers starting to show and business kicking into high gear!
