I grew up with parents who are actively involved in real estate and construction industry. I have childhood memories of working on a home or building after school and on the weekends in order to fix it up for the next tenant or to sell. It was called "family bonding time" at that point in my life; however, I have come to realize it was teaching me how the real estate industry and empower you to let your money work for you instead of working for your money.
I graduated from the University of Iowa with a BS in Computer Science. I went to work in Chicago for a major consulting firm in their R&D Department. While it was great flying everywhere and working with emerging technology, it wasn't really fulfilling. I went back to school and got my Masters Degree in Computer Information Systems, and I found the business classes to be of more interest. During this time, I also purchased my first condo in Chicago and what a rush! The year after, I purchased a second condo. Then the following year, I purchased another condo. I decided after the third condo to get my real estate license, and I am so glad I did. I enable me to begin my real estate career and gain a deeper insight into real estate and the many different options that are available. I am constantly learning of new opportunities and attending training sessions all the time to stay current on what is happening in the industry.
Today, I work in the commercial real estate market and the construction industry. What really drives me is helping businesses and investors succeed! There is nothing like it! It is what drives me. Knowing that I can help a company take the next step to financial security or help an investor start making his/her money work for him/her instead of working for their money. There is no feeling like it! I work hard for my clients because they work hard for their money and trust me to take care of them, and this is why I have over 90% repeat business and an extensive referral base.
