I got into real estate to try something new, and I stayed in real estate to effect change in the industry as a whole.
With a background of many years working in behavioral health, I see the world through a lens of wellbeing. When I started out in real estate I saw first-time home buyers get ushered into offers without the proper education or guidance. I met soon-to-be-clients at open houses who were house hunting but weren’t familiarized with the contract, nor the contingencies in it that protected them, nor how to utilize their resources and position to write winning offers.
I’ve since become passionate about providing this education and guidance to my clients and do frequently still work with first-time home buyers even as my clientele has broadened to include all kinds of buyers and sellers over the years. It’s important to me to play a more thorough role as a realtor, shifting the energy from being sales-focused to being people-focused. Believing that people come far before commissions, my business and I inevitably grew alongside my clients and I’ve come to mentor new agents to do the same.
Over the years I have refined my approach to my work: I integrate a mindful, heart-centered perspective with strong, grounded, and realistic expertise to deliver my clients with the best service and support I can offer. I hold space at every part of the process as a professional educator, negotiator, advocate, and guide.
