What is the biggest challenge in your job?
Not allowing emotions to get in the way; they cloud the issues. But I truly care about my clients and am fiercely protective of them throughout the entire buying or selling process. Clients usually tell us how professional, competent and trustworthy we are, while making the process fun. We love to have fun through what can be a daunting process. And our relationships with clients continue long after a deal closes; we are in this together for the long run.
What makes you different than others in your profession?
I continuously strive to be better. I go to conferences and read all the time, to stay at the forefront of the changing times and trends. Keeping up with the latest technology is vital. Most buyers use the internet to search for a home; having up-to-date information at your fingertips is a requirement with many of today’s buyers and sellers.
