"The act of helping others is at the core of who I am. Initially, I had dreams of becoming a mental health counselor to impact the ever growing statistic of individuals with mental health needs. This desire to give back pushed me to study psychology, psychotherapy, counseling, and personality disorders for a lengthy 7 years. It was when I started practicing the art of counseling that I discovered I am designed to help others in a different capacity. Being a counselor/therapist is a career that requires a great deal of empathy, understanding, communication, perspective, and so on. Unfortunately for me, this career has many restrictions on how I was able to help others and often found myself frustrated as I became over-invested in my clients and couldn't help them the way I felt was best. With that being said, I took a step back and thought about how I could use my skill set to help others in a different way. Redesigned and refocused, I casually fell into the Real Estate field. You need an agent who can negotiate offers and contracts on your behalf while keeping your interests a top priority, help you understand the legalities and other facets of buying/selling your home, and exceed your communication standards throughout the home buying process. Oh, and it doesn't hurt that I have 5+ years experience in home renovation and residential construction. Buying/selling a home can either be a very stressful or exciting experience. I do my very best to provide clients with my genuine, transparent interest in helping them, as they are people (just like me) and not a number or a transaction."
