It was all a dream: I used to read Gazette Magazine

As the market changed from the early 2000’s, I was sometimes asked “Are you still doing real estate?”.  I don’t blame them for asking. Many agents came in at the height and were gone within a couple years. Becoming a Real Estate Agent was the best ‘accident’ I’ve ever made.

The day before I started at RE/MAX in 2002, I accepted a job at a plastic surgeon’s office. I knew that wasn’t for me-so I frantically skimmed through the Gazette Newspaper that day sitting at my parent’s kitchen table in Rockville. There was an ad for an administrative assistant position so I called right away to set up a meeting. The guy answered and said he’d check with his partner and get back to me. I said okay and we hung up. A few minutes went by and I called him again. Can I please come in for an interview TODAY?? Sure, he said, and asked if I could be there in 20 min.  I put on my new biz suit, hopped in my car, and headed down the road! 

The two agents I interviewed with, Todd Wood and Jeremy Lichtenstein hired me later that day. They helped me to learn the Real Estate business from meeting with first time home buyers to reading and writing contracts. I’m so thankful for those few years with them that allowed me to gain the confidence to go out on my own as a full time licensed Realtor. Now the questions I am asked have shifted from “Are you still in real estate?” to 

I’m thinking of selling/buying, will you help us?

2016 marked my best year yet, making the Top Sales list at RE/MAX Realty Services!! Thank you to my wonderful clients, friends, my family, and my work family! Thank you for seeking my advice and real estate knowledge to have smooth and successful moves for you and your families. I’m here to stay!

Until next time…xoxo
