WHAT IS THE #1 WAY YOU SUPPORT YOUR CLIENTS?
“I evaluate their goals and then determine the best way to get them there. From financial/credit challenges to finding the right home … and then being there after closing, because inevitably something always comes up. I hope they continue relying on me for support for many years!”
TELL US ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF PRACTICING THE GOLDEN RULE IN BUSINESS.
“I don’t know if it was my upbringing or the 12 years of Catholic school, but this has been instilled in me from a very young age. I’ve been very blessed with people who have helped me along the way, and this is a way of paying it forward. My job is about helping people, and I truly believe that you reap what you sow. It will always come around.”
WHICH PERSONALITY TRAITS ARE MOST IMPORTANT TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN YOUR FIELD?
“Being a good listener. We have to truly understand the needs of our clients to best serve them and know how to direct them. Also communicating with them in an honest and meaningful way is paramount. I tend to be a little direct in my approach, but I also know how and when to soften things up to make my client feel nurtured and protected.”
HAS MOTHERHOOD MADE YOU A BETTER ENTREPRENEUR?
“Absolutely! In fact, being a mom of a daughter and having been a single mom for a while has driven me to set an example for her to be strong and fearless and to be able to rely on herself. I tried to set an example that hard work pays off—not just financially but it has emotional rewards as well.”
TELL US ABOUT YOUR IDEAL DAY OFF.
“They are few and far between—I’m a workaholic beyond a doubt. But the one thing I love is spending time with my husband and my family, even if it’s just hanging out and having a barbe-cue. It doesn’t take much to make me happy!”
