I never realized how fulfilling it could be to help someone in what is one of the most important choices of their life. Whether it is buying or selling, I always keep my clients needs in mind. I focus on all wants and needs and work diligently to find a way to successfully blend the two. I forget about me and focus on the client because they are what is important. Yes that means working lots of hours (10-14/day) and often 6-7 days a week. But it is so worth it to me when I see the light in my clients eyes when they know the right decision has been made and I know I played a part in helping them.
That is who I am and who I always want to be, the REALTOR who makes a difference! There can be no greater reward than knowing you have made a difference in someone's life. I bring to my career a background as a Professional Stager. I use this background to help clients who are selling to stage their home and bring it to its peak condition and I help buyers to envision the potential of the homes we are visiting. Also having sold my own home (as a FSBO) in Tennessee, I can help both buyers and sellers from the client perspective and keep it real for them because I have been there.
I am diligent, hard working and yet have a zest for life that I bring to each and every client that I meet. Each client is an opportunity for me to make a new friend and to build another lifelong relationship. I keep reminding myself to stay focused and yet have fun and keep the stress from building. I know buying or selling a home can be stressful, so keeping it fun and keeping it light is a major part of what I do for my clients. Often, we stop for ice cream cones, a milk shake, play with the dog or even stop to see the rain. Whatever it takes to relieve the overwhelming feelings. Again, I can make a difference and I do!
Since beginning my career in Real Estate in 2007 I have helped more than 20 military personnel and families buy or sell a home in Eastern NC. I am proud that I am able to help make a difference in the lives of these amazing people who give their lives to protect our country and our freedoms.
