REALTOR

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I first wanted to be veterinarian. That dream ended in my biology class…not my forte. I considered art but decided that I liked to eat. Writing was a front-runner but again, food and shelter are a necessity. So, when I was in high school, I had a teacher who was teaching a class about real estate. She specifically explained to us how one could purchase a multifamily home and have very low expenses because the tenant’s rent would pay most, if not all of the mortgage payment! I realized that one could literally achieve the American Dream with some careful planning and a little luck. Wow! From that moment on I decided that that was going to be my route to independence.

How did I become involved in real estate?

After finishing that course on real estate, I decided that I wanted to take that route of purchasing a multi-family home and begin a life of my own. Eighteen years old, just out of high school and starting college, I realized I needed a job. So to finance my grand scheme I started as a waitress at night, went to school during the day, saved my money, and by the time I was twenty-three I had my down payment in hand. Here’s where my plan went out the window. I met my husband. Long story short, ended up getting married, bought the multi- family and started a family…a very big family. Six children and twenty-three years later the plan took some turns but the dream never died. We sold the multi, raised a family, put my husband through law school and to this day I still love houses! All houses! The best part of this story is that now I get to sell them. It is a wonderful thing.

What is your favorite motto?

I love mottos! They are so easy to plug into a situation and make some sense out of them. For example, “It wasn’t meant to be” is a great one, although I think it is slightly over used. Other mottos I am fond of are “Fake it till’ you make it”, “You get more with sugar than you do with vinegar”, “God doesn’t make junk” and “Be nice”. (I’m not sure if that last one is a motto, but it should be.)

What is your favorite movie?

Anything that makes me laugh. I refuse to see horror movies and I try to

stay away from sad movies; I could just watch the news.

What are you best qualities or greatest strengths?

Reasonable, honest and a little funny.

What is your favorite pastime?

Campfires. It sounds a little quirky, but I like sitting around a campfire at night with my family and friends… talking, playing games and singing with the kids.
