What advice would you offer someone just starting out in your profession?
I recommend new agents work for a more experienced agent before going out on their own. They get exposure to more deals and learn more. Contracts are complicated, as are transactions themselves, so having a trusted mentor to guide you is invaluable.
What brings you the most satisfaction in your work?
I love to “win” for my clients. By “win” I mean getting buyers the house they want or sellers the best price and terms for their home. I was a collegiate swimmer and I guess you could say I am still chasing that feeling of a personal best.
What is the one thing that your clients should know about you?
I grew up in this business. My mom was a successful agent for 40 years, 15 of which she was my partner. I remember days when clients would call our home phone during dinner and my mom would have to run out and get signatures on a contract at all hours. You could say real estate is in my blood.
What are your interests outside of real estate?
I took up tennis a few years back. It’s a challenge— and frustrating at times. But I like having a goal and working hard at getting better. I now play on my club team and in USTA matches. I also love watching my daughter, Georgia, 10, play lacrosse. She is so determined—the game face is priceless—but smiling ear to ear between plays. I love that she has found something that lights her up like that. I think we all strive for that feeling.
