Best part of the job: I love helping with our clients’ journeys to buy a new home or sell a home, whether for happy reasons or at difficult junctures in their lives. I love helping our managers, corporate staff and agents achieve their goals of professional success. And I love all the aspects of running and growing our company.
Stress-buster at work: A conversation with one of my 27-yearold twin kids can be a very nice moment in the day. Jumping in the car to get a good coffee or special snack is a great way to get a break!
