What was your most interesting job before going into real estate?

My most interesting job before becoming an agent was as a paralegal working on foreclosures. I got to know the owners and saw their hardships during the process. I learned valuable lessons about this process and felt inspired to work on the other side of it as a real estate agent. When the crisis of 2008 came along, I was very educated in foreclosures and short sales and was able to assist my buyers and sellers.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up on the South Shore of Long Island in an area called Five Towns.

Growing up, what did you want to be?

I knew I wanted to be in some area of law and business, but I didn’t have a specific profession in mind.

What do you do to relax when you’re stressed?

I can’t resist a good book and enjoy unwinding with my readings. I also love watching Netflix and being outdoors.

If you could meet any well-known figure (living or not), who would it be and why?

Since I enjoy music, I would want to meet all the members of the Beatles! Princess Diana is another well-known figure I would have liked to meet.

What is the most difficult aspect of your job?

There is a lot of multi-tasking that comes with this career. I would say this is difficult at times, but it also helps me grow in my field.

In 10 words or less, what is your advice for someone new to the industry?

Know your market, be punctual, respond quickly and be available; this is not a part-time job.
