Q: What made you interested in Real Estate?

A: I love helping people, looking out for their best interest & having the ability to negotiate on their behalf.

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

A:  Open houses are generally not very interesting. I had a buyer who had presented an offer hang out for the entire 4 hours of my open house. It was very akward.

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

A: I absolutely love what I do. I have too many moments to mention as I have made so many memories. The most heartwarming moments are when you help someone who never thought they would own a home buy one. The proudest moment of my career is being able to purchase my own RE/MAX franchise after only 3 years in the business.

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

A:. How important the broker you choose to work with is.

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

A: Inventory has decreased significantly since 2017 and prices have increased. It is a very challenging market when there is very little to present to your buyer & your seller has to be prepared to view 20 offers.

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

A: The most challenging part of my job is communication. I pride myself in achieving the goals of the client. Sometimes I have to dig deep to find out exactly what these goals are.

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

A: Working diligently for your client.
