Position Held in 2017: Director
Have you always been involved in real estate?
No, I have had several other jobs. Waitress, bartender, nanny, and caterer. I have always been interested in real estate but did not jump in until 2009. Best decision ever!
Why did you get involved at NEAR?
My broker, Linda Early, suggested that it would be a great way to meet other REALTORS®. I quickly discovered that I was able to learn from a larger selection of professionals that have been in the business longer than I. It has presented me with an opportunity to create lasting relationships with some amazing people. My business has grown as a result and I have a deeper understanding of what it means to support and be a REALTOR®.
What’s your coolest career experience to date?
I would say that every day presents a "cool experience". Any time my client is able to secure a home when they are up against several other offers is a wonderful thing. If I had to narrow it down to one cool experience, I would say that helping Tom Bergeron sell his childhood home in Haverhill would make it to the top 5 list.
What do you wish you had known earlier in your career?
To not allow yourself to reach burn out before bringing on others to help you. An assistant is the best, first step you can take to prevent burn out and help increase your business.
Fun fact about you?
I was one of REALTOR® Magazine's Class of 2014, 30 Under 30 and was chosen to be on the cover of the magazine.
