AboutI decided to obtain my real estate license because I wanted to own the life I live and choose what that life would look like. I was driven by this goal, and I quickly realized to help achieve my dreams, it needed to help others achieve theirs. When I got my real estate license in 2012, I was going my seventh year being in this country and I was about to receive my green card, the first step towards citizenship. I had just graduated high school, and although I didn't have the financial resources at the time to go to college (let alone start a business), I felt that the bigger risk was not taking the chance in the first place. The support and encouragement of my family motivated me to sign up that night and start the one-week course during the spring break of 2012. It's been almost ten years since this happened and I'm thankful that 18-year-old me wasn’t afraid to take some risks.
