Experience: 18 months Specializations: GRI & EDGE Areas Served: The greater Oklahoma City, Edmond, Yukon, Mustang, Bethany, Moore and Norman areas Q: What made you become interested in real estate? A: Prior to residential real estate, I worked in commercial property management. I enjoy working with families and finding them the home that meets their needs and wishes. I give my clients personal attention. My clients often ask if we can stay in contact after closing and I'm invited to their new home to share a meal. I treasure those times. Q: What is the most interesting thing that happened during an open house you hosted? A: I listed a home for a family that needed to be under contract within seven days. They found a new home and a contingency was not an option. I listed the home on a Thursday and held an open house Saturday and Sunday. There was a lot of activity both days. A few families seemed interested but not ready to make a decision. I closed up open house at 4:30 Sunday afternoon. At 4:50 my phone rang. The couple introduced themselves and said they wanted to make an offer on the home. Thirty-two days later both buyer and seller closed. Q: What was your favorite moment in your career so far? A: My favorite moment(s) are first time home buyers, without a doubt! From their first step meeting with their lender, looking at homes, writing their first offer, home inspections, and finally the closing table. I feel privileged to be their realtor. Q: What do you wish you had known when you first got your real estate license? A: Surprises found in inspections; water leaks that went undetected, mold, termites and other critters, foundation issues and collapsing duct work and plenums. These issues are not taught in a classroom. Q: In what ways have you seen the real estate industry change since you started? A: Interest rates are on the rise. As a realtor it is important to stay in touch with lenders and have an open dialogue about where interest rates may be headed. Q: What’s the most challenging part of your job? A: Real estate is a fast pace industry. Occasionally I need to remind myself to take personal time to renew so I can be the best for my clients. Q: If you could sum up being a real estate agent in five words or less, what would you say? A: Listen, listen to your clients!
