If you could sell anything, what would it be?
If I could sell anything, other than homes, of course, it would be puppies. You can never have enough unconditional puppy love in your life.
What drew you to Real Estate?
I’ve always worked in sales, and found selling people into their dream homes, or helping them sell a home for a profit and upsize very rewarding. I love working with people, helping them and advising them through their biggest purchase and sale!
Get in touch! I look forward to working with you.
