“Both my mother and I have always wanted to pursue real estate, but it wasn’t until a ‘mid-life crisis’ jarred me into a new career path that we left our nursing careers and joined forces to pursue our dream of working and serving in the real estate world. We are both very different, which is great, because we complement each other very nicely. I love the dance between property and paper.
