“Surround yourself with people who continually strive for excellence, both personally and professionally.”

Q: What advice would you offer to women just starting out?

A: Surround yourself with people who continually strive for excellence, both personally and professionally. Learn from and emulate women you admire in your field. Reach out to another woman with more experience in your profession and ask if she’ll be your mentor. This is a powerful way to connect. Networking is also hugely important. By becoming an active member of your local Chamber of Commerce and other organizations, you’ll build relationships and gain exposure within your field and beyond.

Q: How do you measure business success?

A: Goal setting is crucial when measuring success. I strive to help as many families and individuals as possible with their dreams of homeownership. I have the business sense and life experience to guide my clients through the entire real estate process—from buying their first home to upsizing, investing and downsizing. The truest vote of confidence, trust and success is when previous clients ask me to help a friend or colleague.

Q: What do you look forward to when you go to work every day?

A: Spending time with my clients! Of course, that looks different in this current climate, as we navigate the COVID-19 crisis, but I’m taking advantage of Zoom and FaceTime and ensuring that all CDC guidelines are followed when touring homes and at settlement. This will be the new normal for a while, however, I’m grateful that my job still allows me to meet and help so many interesting people. What a joy!
