SET UP A CALL
Experience: 4 years
Specializations: Residential (buyers and sellers) properties.
Areas Served: In Washington, I serve the tri-cities (Pasco, Kennewick, Richland, West Richland, Benton City), Lower Valley ( Prosser, Grandview, Sunnyside) and California ( LA County, Orange County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County).
Q: What made you become interested in real estate?
A: I enjoy helping people look for their dream home. I enjoy everything about real estate.
Q: What was your favorite moment in your career so far?
A: They all have their special moments, from being someone’s first home to someone buying their investment home. But the ones that are always good are the ones when a client never thought they could buy a home, and you get to hand them the keys to their new home, that is always awesome.
Q: What do you wish you had known when you first got your real estate license?
A: There’s so much to learn, in this business you will never know everything. But if I had to choose something it would be that I wish I had learned what not to say and keep certain opinions to yourself (meaning just because you don’t like a home, doesn’t mean the buyer is not going to love it).
Q: In what ways have you seen the real estate industry change since you started?
A: Real estate has just been booming and prices have been going up, it’s crazy sometimes.
Q: What’s the most challenging part of your job?
A: For me is trying to get buyers to understand that getting pre-approved helps me make sure we look at houses that you actually qualify for and we don’t see something you love and then realize you qualify for $60K less. Now they are comparing all other houses to that home.
Q: If you could sum up being a real estate agent in five words or less, what would you say?
A: Learn to be very patient.
