What do you do best?

I have a great ability to form strong and trusting relationships with all different types of personalities. I understand people well and make them feel comfortable around me.


What makes you the best?

My attention to detail, honesty, and ability to listen. Additionally, my sense of humor allows me to have fun with my clients throughout an often stressful process.


How will you stay the best?

By keeping myself educated, pushing myself beyond my comfort zones, and learning from each new experience. It’s also important not to compare yourself to others and stay focused on your goals.


Biggest success?

This is a tough question. I would say completing my first marathon, because I proved to myself I can do anything I set my mind to. I cried tears of joy when I crossed the finish line.


What are your aspirations?

Personal: To have a well-balanced, happy and healthy life, and to keep learning.  I love traveling and experiencing new things, I think it keeps your perspective grounded.


Business: Any agent’s goal is to continue building their business, but beyond that, I would like to keep building strong and lasting relationships with my client’s as well as maintain a solid reputation among my peers.


Most challenging moment?

This brings me back to the former question of what is your biggest success. The last 4-5 miles of a marathon are the most challenging moments I have yet to experience.


What fascinates you?

People who take risks to follow their dreams, it’s a trait I thoroughly admire.
