What do you love most about the industry?
Helping people. Nothing is more gratifying to me than seeing their smiles and energy at the closing table. Knowing that I was part of finding their dream home, selling it or assisting in their investment purchase makes me all smiles.
What is the most difficult aspect of your job?
My fellow colleagues that don’t know what they’re doing or clients that are not educated well and make the process more difficult than what it should be. I always try and educate them but some just don’t want to listen.

That I’ve been an active Realtor for almost two decades.
What’s your favorite vacation spot and why?
Italy. The food, wine, its people and its history. In the U.S., by far New Orleans. The food and culture is awesome. It’s history too is just mind blowing. Love its character and all the music it provides. Southern hospitality.
