What do you like best about working in Real Estate?
Real Estate is a fun and fulfilling business – you get to meet new people and help them find their forever/dream home. It’s really great seeing people take the keys at closing – they’ve achieved a goal, a dream, and it’s fulfilling to play a role in those achievements.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced in the business?
Marketing myself as a new agent has been challenging. There are a lot of well-known, old pro’s out there and gaining my ground against these real estate “staples” has been a challenge.
What advice would you give someone that is thinking about venturing into Real Estate?
Do it! There are a lot of bridges to cross – class time, exam, finding a good broker, and gaining your ground as a new agent. However, with the support of of good broker/staff, you have the ability to grow a solid business for yourself, all while maintaining flexibility, time for your family, and the opportunity to help people achieve their home goals.
How many years have you been in the business?
This is my first year in the business, although I have been exposed to the Real Estate industry since birth. My dad has been a Broker with Loss since I was little and I have always taken an interest.
Do you have any advice for First Time Home Buyers?
Know what you can afford. Get your finances together, get pre-approved. You will be able to specify your search results to something that fits your budget and is affordable for you and your family. There is nothing worse than looking at a house, falling in love with it, and finding out that it is slightly out of your price range.
When you aren’t working, what do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
When I am not working, I am running after my two-year old daughter. She is full of life and energy and keeps my husband and on our toes!
What’s your favorite part of this area and why?
I’m really in love with the downtown/riverfront Perrysburg area. There is nothing better than being able to walk to dinner, to grab coffee, or to do a little shopping all while enjoying the view of the river. It’s an awesome place for raising children and there is so much charm.
What areas do you service?
I service all areas of Northwest Ohio.
