What was your most interesting job before going into real estate?

Being hired as the event coordinator for 2 Chainz’s private birthday party.

Where did you grow up?


Growing up, what did you want to be?

An educator! I am actually a former public school teacher.

What do you do to relax when you’re stressed?

Google homes, cars, destinations and many other things that I want for myself and my life. When I’m stressed, I have TIME!

If you could meet any well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why?

Rihanna. She has structured and profited greatly in the beauty, fashion and entertainment industry, upwards of $600 million. She has taken a step back from the limelight and still managed to make major waves in sales, media and huge partnerships like LVHM, and many more accolades. She also looks absolutely fabulous doing so! I would love to experience some one on one time with her.

What is Atlanta’s best-kept secret?

Join my email list, and I’ll tell you where all the hidden gems are.

What do you love most about the industry?

The ability to really make a difference in people’s lives and businesses. We educate, advocate, counsel and expose our clients to life-changing moments, all while making a living and earning freedom in flexibility.

How do you distinguish yourself from the crowd of agents?

Being myself, being professional, being available and attracting the clients and customers that resonate with me, trust me, appreciate my expertise and are for me!

What is the most difficult aspect of your job?

Being a human being instead of a genie in a bottle 🙁

What’s your best advice for generating new leads?

Do the most simple things that everyone has stopped doing!

What are you binge-watching/reading/listening to lately?

I currently binge-watch Shark Tank and Caribbean Life.

What’s your favorite meal in Atlanta?

I love going to a nice steak house, and Atlanta has plenty!

Architecturally speaking, what is your favorite building in Atlanta?

Underground Atlanta. It was an Atlanta staple for many many years during the “Old Atlanta” times. We also used to frequent there as kids, teens and young adults. It is such a unique underground building, and I am actually glad to see it being brought back to life.

What’s the weirdest thing that’s ever happened to you on the job?

Hosting an open house for another agent, and I connected with someone there who ended up being my buyer client! Then, that client referred an eager buyer client to me, and we ended up closing on the referral client before we did on the original client!

What’s one thing people are surprised to learn about you?

That I had to have an emergency heart surgery before the age of 30, and I found out about it by the military doctor the day I was supposed to swear in as an officer in the Air Force.

What is your favorite vacation spot and why?

I know it’s become kind of cliche now, but Mexico. I have been to so many places in Mexico, and Guadalajara and Tulum are my favorites. Both are very unique locations and both are very different from Atlanta. Guadalajara, is delectable dishes, ancient architecture, historical design and more. Tulum is natural design, historical sites/tours, private serenity and the infamous strip, with Playa and Cancun within driving distance.

What is your favorite city after Atlanta?

Charlotte, specifically Ballantyne. I lived here for three years, and I loved it. It is a gorgeous city.

In 10 words or less, what is your advice for someone new to the industry?

Be you. Don’t compare. It will happen!

What’s your favorite real estate iPhone/Android app?

KV Core CRM. Dialer. Full Suite. Campaign/Design/Listing/Task Management. Lead Tools.

Who are your favorite people to follow on social media?

Kandi Burruss: A Grammy singer and writer, millionaire and homeowner, all in her 20s. She is still flourishing in music, family, real estate, business and acting 20-plus years later. Plus, she has an entertaining account. LOL.
