Growing up, what did you want to be? It was my goal to be in the news entertainment field. I was fortunate enough to work in television for nearly a decade. I produced the late night news in Palm Springs, Calif. and Richhmond, Va.
If you could have lunch with a well-known figure (living or not), who would it be? Bill Gates, a man who is phenomenally so successful yet so humble and thoughtful of others. This is someone we could all learn a thing or two from.

What is the most difficult aspect of your job? Managing the different personalities that can be involved in a transaction and making sure everyone works together for the ultimate goal of a successful closing with happy buyers and sellers.
Where do you go to network and meet new clients? The people who live in your community can be your best source of referrals. I make it a point to go on daily walks and talk to all my neighbors.
