“Once I discovered my knack for sales, real estate was the obvious choice. I love how it combines a sales-oriented approach with a mission to provide real, meaningful service to my clients. Whether I am helping them buy a dream home or sell a property, a sale for me doesn’t have an expiry, because my relationship with my client doesn’t end on closing date.”
