Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

To be honest – I wish I had some phenomenal story of how I started but honestly, I just woke up one morning and thought “real estate sounds cool”. So, I got my license and somehow ended up falling in love. Being in this field has granted me so many opportunities and given me the freedom to be at home with my son.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

Gosh I can’t really narrow one down. I’ve seen some crazy homes, crazy clients, etc. It’s been quite the ride.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

I find it necessary to take personal breaks. I honestly consider it a part of my business to allow myself to have off days and vacation. I know that I serve my clients best when I’m in a good mental state.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

Steve Blank from LIV Sotheby’s International Realty. He recruited me when I was only 23 and didn’t have much business under my belt. He always pushed me to try harder and believed in me before I even really believed in myself.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

I like to tie all my events to a charity. One of the benefits of real estate is that I get to bring so many people together for events, so I typically like to do a coat drive, canned food drive, etc. I have a team that shares those same values so it’s great.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

I’m not one for motivational quotes. If anything, I’d just say “work harder”.
