AboutMy mother, who has had her license for more than 30 years, educated me daily about the industry while I was growing up. We were constantly in conversations at the dinner table, and my mother took me to meetings, showings, and conventions. I always said, “I will never get my license,” as most kids would do when they are revolting against their parents. One day, I was sitting at my nine-to-five job when I realized that there were no windows in that building, and I didn’t even know what the weather was like outside. At that moment, I decided I wanted to get my real estate license and spend my days doing more for others. I felt as though I was missing out on life by sitting in that office, and I’m very proud that I made the decision to change my career. I now spend every day helping others. I get to have lunch with my two beautiful Siberian Huskies, and I’m able to coach basketball in the afternoons. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
