How did you get started in the real estate business?
I’m third generation broker and owner, so I was born and raised around this business. I was encouraged to pursue other career interests before deciding real estate is what I wanted to do.
What advice would you give yourself if you could go back to the start of your career?
Start earlier. Stay focused and do everything that I am told to do.
Why you love being a Realtor®?
I love helping people. I like seeing the joy on their faces either when they successfully sell or close on the on the sale or transaction. Helping buyers and being able to hand them the keys to their new home is also incredibly rewarding.
What do you attribute your success in the field to?
I’m committed to the client, to helping them find the right place or achieving what they need to out of the sale of their home.
What is the biggest challenge you face being a Realtor®?
The biggest challenge facing a Realtor® is keeping all the balls in the air for multiple transactions, multiple clients’ needs and deadlines and staying focused on the end or what’s next for each transaction.
What made you become more involved in your local, state or national association?
It’s important to participate and be involved. Member organizations depend on it and I want to help make a difference.
How has being involved helped your business?
Being involved in the association has helped grow my business because I now have relationships that span the entire state.
What’s a fun fact about yourself?
When I was a child, my parents built a home that we lived in. We sold the home and exactly one year later, we moved back into that home.
What do you do when you’re not selling real estate?
When I’m not selling real estate, I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling to places that are typically warmer than Pennsylvania.
