I came to Real Estate by a circuitous route. I graduated with a degree in Economics from the University of Wisconsin, taught economics at Gateway Technical College for many years. After living in Germany with my husband and sons upon returning to the US I simultaneously enrolled in the Real Estate licensing courses and embarked on obtaining a degree in Interior Design. I never had any intention of pursuing a career in Real Estate. (Famous last words.) But little by little I was drawn into Real Estate and found I loved it. It combined many of my favorite things…people, homes, the opportunity to “improve” upon a home as it currently exists, and the crucial factors of supply and demand coupled with an understanding of money and banking involved in obtaining a mortgage. My love of this business has lead to tremendous success but for me the best success has always been knowing that I have happy clients.
So why do I say “circuitous”? My father and grandfather were both in Real Estate so in a sense I was raised in the business. The business has morphed many times since my grandfather got his license in 1919 or so. They would never recognize today’s world of real estate. I have always tried to keep up with the those changes as they come. There are more changes on the horizon and we will be incorporating those changes as they come.
My experience began as a teenager helping my dad with his contracting work – painting, nailing shingles, laying tile, steadying 2×4’s, and doing whatever he needed – he was a carpenter. I noticed his eye for detail and his efforts to complete the job with excellence. From the family’s work experience, I employed the work ethic I learned at home in the lawyer’s office where I worked as an Intellectual Property Paralegal. Again, the eye to detail, meeting deadlines and effective communication were all a necessary part of the profession.
