Who is your role model?
Ruth Bader Ginsburg is one of them. She defied all odds in so many walks of life and held strong to her beliefs about fairness and equality.
What organizations do you enjoy contributing to?
I am extremely passionate about banning assault rifles, and I’m involved in several groups to help people and communities affected by mass shootings, like HP Strong. I also believe mental health is grossly neglected in our country and that has to change.
What are your greatest wins?
Every single client leaves a tremendous and unique impact on me. I treasure that our bond extends far beyond the sale. I am proud that I was able to successfully persuade two different homeowners to sell their unlisted homes, in such a limited inventory market, to my grateful buyers.
What is your best networking advice?
Networking is crucial in any business but especially in real estate. Today’s realtors are expected to be highly resourceful and able to provide trusted vendor recommendations. You have to get to know local businesses and vendors to understand their range of services and the quality of their work.
What advice would you give to future Power Women?
Always be kind, stay humble, and keep learning. Knowledge really is power.
