I hold two Florida licenses: broker and instructor and have owned and managed 3 real estate offices. My most challenging training assignment was in 1987 when I worked for an International maritime company and was sent to South America to teach the new office staff and sales associates how to use a “CRT”. The catch was that I had to use a Portuguese interpreter during the training sessions as no one in the office spoke English!
There is no other industry that I would rather be in than real estate. My entire career prior to getting my first real estate license always revolved around training and management. In fact, my degree in teaching was my first step to becoming an effective and respected real estate broker and instructor as my primary job now is to educate buyers, sellers, and real estate licenses about the business and the transactional process. My personal motto: “If you do the right thing, the rest takes care of itself” demonstrates a tireless commitment to always focus on making decisions which serve my customers and co-workers honorable and morally. That doesn’t mean that I haven’t had challenges, but I can say that I don’t worry about having to face anyone with whom I have done business.
I’ve had the awesome privilege and responsibility to change people’s lives positively and never underestimate the impact of my actions as a Realtor®.
I was recently awarded 2018 Educator of the Year by our local board.
A few of my favorite things: my children, otters, and being a volunteer for Community Hospice.
