Why I sell real estate...

Why I sell real estate...

When I first made the leap into full time real estate sales, I will be honest, I was excited about becoming an entrepreneur.  The possibilities seemed endless. I was able to be my own boss and my income goals skyrocketed. But as I continued to go through this journey it became less about myself and my goals. 

It become more about the people in which I was able to surround myself with. Helping people achieve their real estate goals and dreams became my passion.  I will never forget the first time a client cried at a final walk through, the huge smiles of a young newlywed couple holding their keys for the first time or when a client's young son hugged me because he had a backyard and a street filled with new friends to ride his bike with.  I have been overwhelmed with joy, love and many moments of happy tears! 

It always warms my heart to hear client's say things like "sorry to bother you" or "we don't mean to be a pest".  I will always remind them they are never a bother and it is always my intention to help them, to add value and guide them through this process.  To me there are few things in this world as wonderful as watching my clients move into their new home. Although sometimes my job can seem easy and often can become a thankless one, through these stories I am reminded why I stay on this crazy real estate path. 

One of the reasons I made the decision to join Engel and Völkers, a company few people have heard of in our area, is because they reiterated to me what is truly important, our clients!! 

My competitive spirit remains but with a new focus.  I have made the decision to focus less on my sales goals and more on helping as many people possible achieve their real estate goals.  By alining myself with such an exceptional brand like Engel and Völkers, I am able to provide premium service to all price points. 

Without the love, support and sacrifice of my family and friends none of this would be possible.  I love all my amazing clients and feel honored to be able to work with each and every one of them! I also owe a huge thank you to my awesome referral partners who make my job easier to navigate. 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for fueling my passion of selling real estate!
