Why did you choose to pursue a career in real estate?
Vicki: There isn’t a limit as to how much money I can make; 2. Real estate is always changing….no chance of boredom; 3. A real estate career provides flexibility to fit any size goal I desire.
Rob: After my law enforcement career, I felt my best skill set was connecting with all sorts of people groups and helping them with some of the challenges they face. Real estate sales seemed to match-up perfectly with that in my opinion…plus I get to work with Vicki…she’s pretty cute.
Melissa: I always knew I wanted to be self-employed. After trying some business ventures, I kept coming back to real estate. Growing up in a real estate family, it made sense to take the leap and join the family team.
Chad: Growing up in a real estate family definitely influenced me. After graduating from college with a finance degree, I decided to join the family team.
