I was in land development and homebuilding from graduating high school until the crash of 2007. Many people think the crash was in October 2008, but real estate and development crashed in August 2007 and happened overnight. On a whim, I opened up a clothing store because, at that point, only the real estate market was hit. Shopping online was new, so it was taboo for clothing manufacturers to sell to online retailers. I taught myself how to build a website and was the first eCommerce store in Michigan selling women’s and children’s clothing. In 2014, I decided to get a real estate license.
Clinton Township, Michigan.
I wanted to be a veterinarian.
I like to cook, but if I’m really stressed, I love to listen to guided meditations.
It would be Tony Robbins. It’s been a long-running joke among friends that I was meant to have drinks with him because I’ve seen him twice.
Greek Islands Taverna in Fort Lauderdale. It’s Greek, but it’s a favorite among Italians (Greeks are Italians inside out).
I love the camaraderie among professional Realtors. When you work with an agent who takes the profession seriously, it’s like you ran a marathon together and formed a bond.
There are a lot of misconceptions about real estate agents. For some reason, it’s a profession that is often disrespected because people don’t realize how much work it requires.
Utilizing social media platforms is an amazing way to generate new leads.

The Versace Mansion in Miami is gorgeous.
I have so many! I called social services after showing a house because I was positive that a dead body was in it and a baby was living there. I found out that the smell was cat pee. I actually did a TikTok on that.
For some reason, people find it surprising that my parents were Italian immigrants. I guess I don’t look Italian.
Sedona, Arizona. There is just something magical about it. I am dying to go to Cuba as well.
