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 a woman with experience in your profession and ask if she’ll be your mentor. 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: The truest vote of confidence and trust is when past clients ask me to help a friend or colleague. Helping as many people as possible achieve their dreams of home ownership or move on to the next phase of their lives is my goal. I have the business and life experience to guide my clients through the entire real estate process—from buying their first home to upsizing, downsizing or investing.

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

A: Staying on top of the market, advising my clients, problem-solving and, most of all, meeting so many interesting people! There are critical things for buyers to consider that aren’t always intuitive and many strategies for preparing a home for the market. Add to that the challenges of selling and buying at the same time and a continually changing housing market! I have a robust “tool kit” of ideas and approaches that give my clients the edge—in any market.
