I had worked in customer service and sales for 25+ years, I also taught fitness classes for 13 years. I’ve always loved helping people with milestones in their lives. From weddings to losing weight and getting healthy. One of my students kept telling me I should get into real estate. How she thought I would be good at it since I loved helping people so much. I never considered it before. I started thinking more and more about it. As I was getting older I knew I couldn’t keep jumping around like I was a crazy person teaching fitness classes. 

I hadn’t been in school in a long time so that was very fearful for me and held me back for a while. Until one day in a discussion with my husband, I made the decision to go for it. Why not? Why couldn’t I do it? I knew if I gave it my all I could be successful. I decided to go for it. 

It seemed once I made the decision to go for it everything else around me fell apart. The location where I was teaching my fitness classes caught on fire and I had nowhere to teach. As that was my bread and butter at the time. I panicked. I had to find another location to teach so real estate had to wait. About 6 months went by with little time to study but I was able to complete the class. I still didn’t feel confident enough to take the state test so I allowed more time to go by. Almost 1 year later I did it. I went in for the state test and passed. I remember sitting in my car in joyful happy tears. I started to doubt my real estate journey. But that day at that moment. I knew this was for me to help others with this new career ahead. 

I had already met with my broker and knew where I wanted to work. I'm Not about big names. It was more important to be somewhere that would teach me to be the best real estate agent I could be. Being the best and putting my clients first. After I passed my test I went to every class possible. Some classes I took 4 times. I wanted to learn everything I could. I was so excited to learn and get started. I remember working my first open house and meeting my first client John. I was so nervous and so excited. I found him a beautiful condo and had a great 1st transaction.  

Since then I have started a team of like-minded agents who love to help people and have a passion for real estate. We work very hard for our clients. You don’t hire one of us, you hire all of us. Feel secure knowing that you have a team with collective decades of real estate experience in your corner. We know our market inside and outside and have successfully helped numerous clients upgrade to the home of their dreams. We strive to be responsive and being available when needed is important to us. We work together to make sure our clients receive concierge service.

I myself love assisting families in upsizing their houses. Whether you are moving into something larger for space purposes. Your family is growing, or two families coming together. My H2H process will allow us to have a stress-free journey together. Let my team and I work for you. We’re here to match your heart to home.
