"As a Realtor, I am involved with helping people make some of the most important decisions of their life. The lessons I learned from working with people from all walks of life, has enabled me to have a better understanding of others.  Being a Realtor has helped me understand that no matter what your profession, you have to continue to learn and stay tuned in to what is going on all around you because that also impacts what we do and how we do it."


"Most importantly, I believe that our lives should have the following order of things: You have to have Faith, then dedication to Family (blood or chosen) and then to Profession.  We must do all things with Respect and Honesty, only then can you earn the trust of others."
