I chose to be a REALTOR® because this career allowed me to set my own destiny. The possibilities are endless when you are a REALTOR®. Some people are happy selling 3 houses a year, others are happy selling 50 houses a year. So yes, it is a good life which is why I have been a REALTOR® for 19+ years. I really cannot imagine myself doing anything else.
The reason I have been with Coldwell Banker Bain for so many years is because the education they provide is superb and this is the only company that provides the Real Estate Guide insert that goes into the Saturday Tacoma News Tribune.
Before that, I was an Office Administrator for Chassis Components, a race car shop. As owners of the shop, my husband and I facilitated the building of the race cars, and I helped create the manual for the crew.
When I’m not helping my sellers or buyers, I love to garden. I enjoy planting new flowers and watch them come back up again next year. I also volunteer at a retirement center, taking seniors to their doctor appointments and to the grocery store so they don’t have to pay for public transportation.
I find that going into the office every day and feeling the energizing atmosphere is the greatest motivation that keeps me on the move. It really motivates me to help my clients buy and sell their homes!
