How did you get your start in real estate?

My mother introduced me to the industry and it was a great job to start while paying for college 

How did you choose your current brokerage?

Easy. I own it. 

What do you wish more people knew about working in real estate?

Real estate is not an easy trade to master, which is why the attrition rate of new agents is so high. You do not go from “I just got my real estate license” to “I’m a millionaire” overnight. 

What’s something you know now that you wish you knew when you started?

Patience fixes everything.

Tell us about a high point in your brokerage career

Being offered the exclusive Christie’s International Real Estate affiliation, and then being named affiliate of the year, was huge, and, again, no easy feat to accomplish.

What’s your top prediction for the future?

The way we transact real estate will change, and you better be ready for it! 

What’s your top tip for freshly licensed brokers?

Have a mentor, or work as an assistant to a top producer to see the habits firsthand of highly successful agents. 

Name 2 people you admire

Mom taught me to never give up. Dad taught me my work ethic.

What makes a good leader?

Someone who will never ask their team to do something they won’t do themselves.

What’s one thing you wish every agent knew?

I’d have to choose two things: Education and knowledge are keys to success, and it costs nothing to be nice to people.
