AboutGrowing up, my dad was a contractor and built homes as a second job. Ironically, he did not believe in real estate agents and would sell the houses himself. I admired his work ethic and how he managed to handle a diverse workload, wearing the hats of project supervisor, builder, and liaison between the workers and client. When I started in real estate in 2016, I did not envision owning my own company at the age of 26 and being the highest-selling independent brokerage in our region. After getting my bachelor’s degree in business, I worked at a wine bar, not sure what my next chapter entailed. It was there that I met my previous broker, who pointed out my ability to sell and converse with people. These past two years have been a huge growing experience—buying the company, buying an 1800s farmhouse commercial space, renovating it, and rebranding. I am so excited to pour my knowledge into our newer agents and grow together. I think I even changed my dad’s opinion on agents.
