I grew up in a military family and moved around a lot until my parents decided that Sacramento was going to be home. I never went to the same elementary school twice so I constantly had to make new friends, so I developed the ability to spark up a conversation with pretty much anybody. To this day, I enjoy talking to whoever I come in contact with, whether it’s a real estate client, or someone in line at the grocery store. The fact that I truly enjoy other people, and have a genuine interest in their lives, helps my clients to feel secure when interacting with me.
I was introduced to real estate by a friend, who suggested that I get into the financial side. After considering all the options, I realized that becoming an agent would be a better fit for me. I love being out and about showing houses, and most of all, interacting with people not only on a business level, but on a personal level as well. People are my passion, and I find nothing more rewarding than being an advocate for people and helping them achieve their dreams. The best part of being a Realtor for me is handing over the keys for the home by clients have just purchased.
I obtained my license in 2005, just before the economy took its downward turn. I sold my first home and the housing market suddenly stopped...I was faced with new challenges. I started a new company, and helped people clean up the mess that the economy had caused in their lives. It was such a confusing time for everybody, and the innovation and creativity that it took for me to find ways to still help people really solidified the fact that this is what I want to do. It also assured me of my ability to do so, regardless of the circumstances. The economy began to stabilize a bit and I was able to go back to more traditional real estate transactions continuing my career as a REALTOR® at Neighborly Realty. My previous broker and owner of Neighborly Realty asked me if I wanted to take over the residential side completely. I graciously accepted the proposition, and have excitedly taken the reigns. I have goals and a vision to grow Neighborly as an agency that exceeds all expectations, with an emphasis that my clients will always come first.
Home buying and selling can be a bumpy ride. I realized that in order to create the smoothest transactions possible, technology has become instrumental in today’s business world. If there is a gadget out there that will help to streamline processes, I probably have it. I am fascinated with technology and have implemented it into my business wherever possible. Being up to date with these advances is not only fun for me, but helps me provide a maximum level of efficiency for my clients.
I truly look forward to helping people achieve whatever real estate goals they have.
