Shortly after I graduated from college I inherited a small sum from my grandmother. With this unexpected windfall I made what is, to this day, one of the best decisions of my life. I decided to use the money as a down payment on my own place, a 525 sqft. studio apartment.
At the time I was working as a department manager at the area’s premiere health and fitness club. Over the 9 years I spent there, I continuously developed: communication skills, management of consumer expectations, staff scheduling, education of clients, coordination of internal and external communications, troubleshooting, meeting and exceeding upper management’s goals, organizing and creating systems for the department’s continued growth, maintaining and creating web based and traditional marketing strategies.
As my family grew and the equity in my studio increased, I thought about what I was going to do. We needed a bigger place. This is the time I really became interested in real estate, as an investment. I ended up keeping my studio and renting it out. Following a few chance meetings with other investors, a real estate 101 class, and a NYS home inspector license earned, I was well on my way to my love of real estate and my next career.
It wasn’t until 2011 with the prospect of moving out of the TriState area to the DMV, Mid- Atlantic area that I committed to residential real estate, as a sales associate and the role’s unique opportunity to facilitate others goals of home ownership. I went on to obtain my broker licenses in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC and Florida. Now in my 12th year, I continue to utilize past and current experiences, constant continuing education and market knowledge to prepare and position my clients to take advantage of what real estate has to offer. Creation of a home, an investment and a way to build wealth.
