Where do I begin with real estate? I guess we can go back to college. I started off wanting to only “Fix and Flip” properties. The crazy part about that, you have to have money $$$ and lots of it. Right out of college I had very little. During my internship with Sears Real Estate I found out that real estate is so much more than making money. It is about assisting other in their own story. I have been able to help people start chapters in their life and unfortunately close some of those chapters too. I have learned that the emotions in buying property include tears of joy, tears of sorrow and also the feeling of thinking about business only. My goal is to help others get into their first home, a bigger home a smaller home, buying a rental home and their final home.
