Meet a passionate and dedicated real estate professional with over 16 years of experience in the industry. As a Realtor, I pursued this career path not just for financial independence but also to have control over my own destiny. Starting out in financing gave me valuable knowledge and insight that has helped me educate my clients completely.
MY WHY my 7+ children , family, my parents, and the desire for personal freedom. I find great fulfillment in helping families achieve one of their most essential needs, purchasing a home. The best part of being a Realtor is inspiring and helping families realize their dreams. I have built my business from the ground up, which instilled within me a sense of pride and accomplishment.
I am grateful to God, and I have a fantastic team and assistants that are always there to help. Together, we can achieve our desired goals, and I believe that the time and effort I put into my clients and business now will determine how great the rewards are in helping families realize their dreams of homeownership.
For me, impacting the lives of others positively is my greatest achievement. Going above and beyond what's expected of me is what I strive for in every transaction. I believe that if you are passionate about something and love what you do, the results are always priceless.
As a Realtor, I have assisted clients with real estate transactions such as purchases on residential and commercial property transactions, rehab projects and construction purchases. My clients range from first-time homebuyers, investors, and self-employed individuals to those who know nothing about purchasing a home or commercial property. My mission statement is "Here to serve and walk you through it all."
If you're thinking about becoming a Realtor, my tip for you is to go for it! I encourage everyone to pursue their dreams and take a leap of faith. Every great business began with an idea, and you never know where the road will take you if you don't travel on it.
