Where did you grow up?  Various states, including New York, New Jersey, California, Nevada, Florida and Mexico City, Mexico. My father liked to travel and change our residence every year. It taught me to adapt to all circumstances and made it comfortable for me to meet and work with a diverse group of people. It is a big part of what I enjoy about working in real estate, I get to meet interesting new people all of the time. I also was able to learn Spanish fluently, for which I am grateful.

What is the most difficult aspect of your job? In certain cases, coming to a meeting of the minds, but it is very rewarding when this is achieved

Where do you go to network and meet new clients? Since almost every person owns or rents a home or condo, every day presents opportunities to meet buyers and sellers. I also network on the internet through various outlets and get a lot of customer referrals and repeat clients.
