Before becoming a real estate agent, I worked an “ideal job” in corporate America. Although I went to college to study for a career in this industry, I became bored with the day to day duties of my job. I did not feel I had a meaningful purpose in my job or the industry.
During this time, I had a two-year-old and was expecting my second child; I was being pulled in different directions and becoming emotionally overwhelmed. Before the birth of my second child, fate had it for me to be a stay-at-home mom. Operative word, fate! Operative word, faith! My husband and I didn’t plan for me to be a stay-at-home wife/mother nor did I want to be. But what a blessing it was. To be able to care for, spend precious countless hours with, and love on my three children all day is something I cherish and appreciate to this day. I also got to meet some awesome women during this time. Although I’ve always had the support of my husband, there was nothing like talking to other women and being uplifted by each other!
When my youngest child started school, I was ready to get back into the workforce. I decided to follow a path I’d once pondered, real estate. As an agent, I love owning my own business and the flexibility of my schedule for the sake of my family, but mostly I enjoy empowering families to realize their real estate dreams.
Homeownership is a real estate goal that many families believe they can’t attain. I show them that their goal is attainable! There are so many programs and organizations out there that can assist families in achieving and maintaining homeownership. I enjoy connecting them to the resources to help them realize their dream; for some sooner than they’d expected! Investing in real estate has personal and economic benefits that can take a family on a path to a new level. Homeownership can also give a family a fresh new start. I feel most aligned with my purpose while connecting with people in a meaningful way and educating and encouraging families to achieve their real estate dreams.
