Q: What made you become interested in real estate? 
A: I worked with a mentor when I was in my teens who was a fictional novelist, but happened to be a Realtor as her primary gig. We talked a lot about writing (which was my dream when I was a teen), and I’d go with her to see houses and to meet new clients. It was then that I realized I needed a career that had lots of social interaction. I craved a career that allowed me to connect with people. So I took the plunge in 2006 and here I am, now.

Q: What is the most interesting thing that happened during an open house you hosted?
A:  The open house was pretty full and a woman comes in, lays down in the middle of the bedroom floor (the property wasn’t staged) and yells out for everyone in the place to stay put and be quiet so that she can feel the vibrations of the house. Not sure whether it because of the vibrations or not, but she didn’t end up buying it. It wasn’t the strangest thing I had ever seen, but it wasn’t something you see everyday, that’s for sure.

A: I’ve always worked in sales, marketing and customer service. Two of my girlfriends have been in real estate for more than 15 years and both kept telling me that I would be amazing at helping clients and would be able to build a rewarding business. I jumped in and was hooked!

Q: What is the most interesting thing that happened during an open house you hosted?
A:   After I coached the owners why they shouldn’t be at their open house, the morning of the open house, they refused to leave the home. They locked themselves in the master suite which prevented me from showing upstairs to two very interested clients. I finally had to knock on the door and explain to them that in order to have a successful open house, I needed access to all of the home.

Q: What made you become interested in real estate?
A: As a former airline pilot of 8 years flying for ExpressJet Airlines, I really wanted to find a career that would afford me the opportunity to settle down and plant roots in one place. Houston was my last base with the airlines. I fell in love with the city and the people here. I loved the fact that real estate afforded me the opportunity for creating my own success while helping people achieve their dreams of home ownership.

Q: What is the most interesting thing that happened during an open house you hosted?
A: The most interesting and shocking thing that I’ve experienced was preparing for an open house for a listing that a friend of mine had. I didn’t know much about the home so I arrived early to familiarize myself with the home. As I was turning on the lights I made my way to the third floor, and got quite the startle when I opened up the door to the bonus room only to find a mounted elk head staring me right in the face. I was completely unprepared for that, but after the initial shock, I got quite a good laugh about the situation.
