Q: What made you interested in Real Estate?

A: When I purchased my first home I was hooked on the industry and it has been a passion of mine now for almost 20 years.

Q: What is the most interesting thing that happened during an open house you hosted?

A: Several times in my career I have found the buyer for the home I had listed at an open house, it is always exciting when two clients are able to both succeed with their real estate goals on the same property.

Q: What was your favorite moment in your career so far?

A: I will always remember several of my most special clients that were able to purchase homes under special down payment assistance programs and the tremendous equity gains they have realized that have transformed their family circumstances. There truly is no other way to build wealth than through real estate investments.

Q: What do you wish you had known when you first got your real estate license?

A: I wish I would have been better prepared for the changes that take place during various real estate cycles. I have really learned to adapt over the years and that skill set is essential to survive and thrive as a top producer.

Q: In what ways have you seen the real estate industry change since you started?

A: We have gone from new construction boom, to mortgage meltdown to short sale, to investor flip, and we are now in a heavy migration market. The only thing you can count on in the real estate business is that the market is always changing and you have to move with it and continue to grow and learn new ways to market and nurture your client relationships.

Q: What’s the most challenging part of your job?

A: Being available to my clients at unusual hours.

Q: If you could sum up being a real estate agent in five words or less, what would you say?

A: Win, win, or no deal.
