As a Realtor, I get the opportunity to help people through each stage of their lives and be a part of their stories, whether they are buying their first home or relocating to another state. I wear many hats: I become part counselor, part strategist and part adviser. It’s so rewarding to be a resource to connect clients to a community and give back. 

What makes you successful in your business?
Nobody needs to light the fire under me! It’s my ministry to help people get to where they need to go. Matching clients with the perfect home and knowing all the memories they will make brings me so much joy. I truly resonate with my clients and listen to their real estate goals. Passion, tenacity and a positive attitude are things that I pride myself on. Communicating every step of the way is always crucial, and I always try to stay one step ahead. 

What advice would you give women interested in a similar career? 
Don’t quit! Embrace the challenges; there’s always a solution to any problem. Begin this career with a servant heart and you will succeed.
