What qualities should a successful real estate agent have?
A Realtor should have a thick skin and be tenacious, approachable, calm, honest, tactful and strong. You need to connect with people, understand their needs and deliver for them. You’ve got to be hungry to learn and offer clients the most up-to-date technology and marketing. Realtors must fight for their clients without alienating the other side of the transaction. Mutual respect makes transactions go smoothly.
What was a major turning point in your life/career?
I’ve been lucky. My career has had so many cool turning points. I’ve been a professional dancer, a Pilates trainer for NFL, MLB and MLS players, and a small business owner. Growing up with a Realtor mom inspired my passion for real estate. After my oldest went to college and my youngest was in high school, the time was right. Helping people find their new home is the best.
