As a sales person for the past 40 years, I have sold everything from candles to cars. I know that helping people to pick out what best shows their personality is the key to a happy client, whether it is their favorite scent or the overstuffed chair that will have a home in the family room for many years to come. I carry with me the experience and challenge of making sure every client feels at home.
I chose Real Estate as a career as it combines my affinity for people, homes and the process of bringing the two of them together. With a natural love of form and function, color and texture and the ability to see things for what they can be, I find it easy to combine my talents to help my clients find the home they've been dreaming of or helping those that wish to sell their homes and move on to their next adventure.
While this is not the career I started in, I feel like I have been doing this my whole life. And, it feels new every day at the same time. It's simple, I love what I do.
I am not sure that some would consider my business philosophy a business philosophy but more like a life philosophy. People first. I can honestly say that there is nothing more gratifying than a satisfied person, couple, family. And taking the time to find out exactly what will accomplish that is the first order of business.
If you take care of people, the business will be there. Reputation is everything and a recommendation from a customer is the highest of compliments.
