Why did you choose to pursue a career in real estate?
I was on independent study during high school attending the Mendocino college for additional credits and working on my general ed classes to get my associates degree starting at 15 years old. While looking into their offerings and what was available knowing I would be great at some avenue of business/entrepreneurship, I decided to look into real estate. In no rush to finish the classes I took all the courses they had to offer between 15-18. I knew I didn’t want to do school for much longer, and real estate seemed like the ideal career for me. I loved the flexibility, the unlimited potential, and loved the idea of being able to see houses. As a kid I moved over 15 times before I turned 18, I would beg my mom to take me to open houses and beg them to move when we found a house with a window bench (they were my favorite).
How have you adapted your marketing/business during the era of Coronavirus (COVID-19)?:
Pre-covid, one of my main advertising avenues was hosting events. Everything from first friday art walks, a downtown favorite in Ukiah to craft nights. I love ‘event planning’ and being able to spoil my clients with fun parties! I can’t wait to start doing those again. I have always been very active on social media and I made sure to dig deeper into those relationships and make more meaningful connections with my ‘followers’
