Q: What made you interested in Real Estate?

A: I love the process of finding a great home for great people. The contracts, negotiations, and everything is fun!

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

A: Someone was asking questions that didn't really make sense, and they ended up realizing they had gone to the wrong open house!

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

A: I was helping a client move into their new house, and their neighbor came to help us as well. We started talking, and they asked how I knew them. I told the neighbor that I was their Realtor, and he was just shocked that I was there helping them. I told him that's why I was in business to help others, and my hands worked fine enough to move the boxes as it did to do the forms. I hadn't thought much of going to help them before that moment, but I realized that I needed to make sure that type of service was always my instinct.

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

A: That I would receive more sales calls for marketing, brokerages, and health insurance than "car warranty" calls. Blew my mind.

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

A: We have definitely gone more virtual and adopted some better technology as an industry, and I hope the industry continues to evolve that way. The continued shortage of homes has definitely had a poignant effect on the market and industry as types of negotiations and contracts have swung heavily in the sellers' favor. We have had to get creative with helping our buyers.

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

A: Making sure all the documentation and contracts are complete and accurate. There is a lot of paperwork in real estate!

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

A: Helping transactions go smoothly.
