I should have known having a career in real estate was inevitable.
I have always had a passion for serving others and putting my best foot forward. In fact, these two traits are always in my top results when I take any type of aptitude test. I believe these traits aren't learned ones but part of who I am and why I do what I do.
When I serve those around me by; making treats and delivering them to my neighbors, donating to the local coat drives, thanking veterans for their service by donation or attending local events to honor them, making a meal for a family in need, and donating my time to other charities and organizations, I find myself most alive. It has been said, "The best way to find your self is to lose yourself in the service of others." Secondly, the "best foot forward" approach reminds me of my elementary school days when I would always redo my homework or projects until they were just right before I turned them in. Another favorite saying of my mine is, "good, better, best, never quit until your good is better than your best."
Serving others and putting my "best foot forward" has followed me right into the world of real estate. When it comes to helping my clients I approach the task with the same passion and work ethic. I obtained a Finance degree from Tennessee Tech in 2008 and use this knowledge to help my clients succeed in achieving their real estate goals. In the past year, I have helped over 40 families with their real estate needs the Upper Cumberland area. Because I am a member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR), I am held to a higher standard of ethics and code of conduct that allows me to provide quality service to my clients. In 2017, I was awarded the Award of Excellence by the Upper Cumberland Association of Realtors. I am a designated pricing strategy advisor (PSA), which means I have the tools and ability to help my clients determine property values based on factual data. I am also advocate for equal housing opportunities.
But most of all, I am passionate about serving my clients with professional service, experience, and a drive to meet all their real estate needs.
