I grew up around the real estate business. My mother has been a local REALTOR® association executive for more than 30 years. I’ve watched other people in the business my entire life, and I knew at an early age that I have what it takes to be successful. I measure success by my reputation, giving back to my community, happy customers, professionalism, and, of course, my sales. There is great reward in helping someone sell or purchase a home. I’m also highly involved in both my local and state REALTOR® associations. And since 2014, I’ve served on the board of directors for Family Promise of Gainesville, a local nonprofit that provides homeless families with compassionate care, case management, education, housing, meals, and transportation until they can transition to a home of their own.
