What do you love most about the industry? I love the challenge of getting two parties with different immediate needs, but the same ultimate goal, to come together.

How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents? I am able to provide a sense of calm to all of my clients but I am working like crazy on the back end. All of my reviews echo that statement. I am also able to provide a network of contractors that can get your house ready to list, or make repairs after you buy.

What is the most difficult aspect of your job? Saying “no” to new business. The life/work balance is something that we all strive to perfect. I always try to maintain a small base of active clients so I can give each and every one of them the attention they need.

Where do you go to network and meet new clients? Anywhere and everywhere! 98% of my business is referral based but I always am giving out cards to new friends.
