What was the first thing you wrote on your to-do list for today?:
Calendar remaining events, and productivity hours for the remainder of December.
Why did you decide to pursue a career in real estate?:
Since I was young, my father always instilled understating the value of investing in real estate. My family owns a number of rental properties and through middle and high school I would help with the maintenance of the properties as well as organizing the books at the beginning of each month. Along with that, my job throughout high school and college was an assistant to a real estate broker and from that, I gained a lot of knowledge in the career and loved the feeling of being part of someone’s biggest investment and seeing the joy it brought to people at the end of the transaction. I always knew I was going to delve into something having to do with real estate because of my family background, but while I was in college getting my degree in Business Management, I just knew my passion was going to be in real estate, so I simultaneously got my real estate license and degree.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?:
