When I sold the bridal store I owned, the Realtor® who sold it for me suggested I try real estate.

What is your favorite thing about being a Realtor®?

My favorite part of being a Realtor® is the variety of each day. No two days are the same so it makes every day a ‘new day’. I also enjoy finding solutions to opportunities that face us as well as mentoring new agents and seeing them become great Realtors®.

Most of the time an introvert.
