Never turn down a free lunch because it may end up finding you the career of your dreams. I have been in the Real Estate industry for almost 24 years now. I actually started in Real Estate as a Realtor when I was 19 years old. I had the stars in my eyes and thought that it would be so fun to sit in a house, serve juice and cookies, and sell houses all day long. I laugh out loud every time I think about how naïve I was back then and how hard it must have been for people to take me seriously at that age. 😊 I have so much respect for every Realtor I know because it is not easy and they deserve some serious props! I knew I was hooked on Real Estate, but this was not my niche.
When I realized that I needed to find another way to work in Real Estate that fit me better, I was lucky enough to get invited to a lunch meeting with the in-house mortgage company in my Real Estate office. They were looking for a new loan officer for their branch and offered me a position in the same office I was working in already and to teach me everything I needed to know. Let’s just put this into perspective here: The only thing I knew about a “Mortgage” before I went to Real Estate school was when you flipped over your property card in Monopoly, you got Money from the bank. This is why I always tell my clients that “there are NO stupid questions”. I’m sure I’ve had them all myself.
I feel very lucky to have gotten that opportunity dropped in my lap at such a perfect time. I entered the Mortgage business when rates were high, and believe it or not, people were still buying houses! In a more difficult market, I quickly learned the value of relationships and making the mortgage experience second to none for all of my clients. I pride myself on being accessible, knowledgeable, and understanding of the needs of my clients and referral partners. I always aim to help people with compassion, kindness, and respect.
There is nothing else I would rather be doing than helping as many families as I can realize the dream of homeownership and making sure that they are in the best financial position possible. Helping people, in any aspect of life, is who I am at the core and having the ability to do just that, every day, is amazing. I can’t wait to help you, and everyone you know, make your homeownership dreams a reality.
