Previous to entering the Real Estate Industry, I was in the Travel Industry for over 20 years. I arrranged corporate travel, family vacations, honeymoons, luxury travel, cruises, tours, groups - you name it, I arranged it. I decided to retire from the travel business when I was afforded the opportunity to open my own business, a Subway Restaurant Franchise. It was a difficult decision because I loved what I was doing and I was at the top of my game. My Subway Restaurant became an instant success and kept growing and growing. When I was approaced by a current Subway owner to purchase my location, again it was a very difficult decision to make; however, in the end, I decided to sell my franchise. Now what was I going to do? I wanted something with flexibility that would allow me to continue my contact with the public. I thought a lot about my strengths, and how I could best utilize them. I excelled at arranging the right trips for the right people at the right price so why not take my skills to find the right home for the right person at the right price. So I decided to bring my excellent customer service and negotiation skills to Real Estate. And Here I Am, At Your Service. Call Me For All Your Real Estate Needs.
When I decided Real Estate was my next turn in life, I wanted to acquire as much education and background as possible. I completed 120 classroom hours in Real Estate APPRAISING (which included 15 classroom course on USPAP). And thus, I am proud to say, I hold my Real Estate Appraiser Trainee License (although I am not active as an appraiser). I then completed the Long & Foster Principle and Practices Class (the prerequisite to obtaining your Real Estate Salesperson License). I immediately took the Maryland PSI State Real Estate Exam and passed on first take. I am currently enrolled in the Graduate Realtor Institute in order to obtain my GRI Designation. I continually attend seminars and workshops in order to keep up to date with this complex industry. I am confident working as both a buyer's agent or a listing agent.
