How’s business?


One thing you wish everyone knew about your business: Real Estate is a huge investment and you should use a Realtor that will have your best interest at heart and have the support of a well established organization. We offer personalized services to meet the client’s individual needs.

Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: Professional service and knowledge of the market and the area. Our office is open 7 days a week to better serve you.

Advice to young entrepreneurs: Investigate all aspects of a career before you choose a profession, then don’t give up. Do what it takes to make your dreams come true. Have a supportive spouse or family.

Your first job: Baby sitting

Your role model (in business or in life generally):

I don’t have just “one” role model in business or life. I use what I have learned throughout my life to better myself-personally and professionally. My husband gives me a lot of advice. I guess that is because he is the one I complain to the most.

The key to a successful business is:

Work, work, work. Don’t take anything for granted.
