At the age of twenty-one in Euclid, Ohio, I was told that I didn’t have the ‘right personality’ for a Real Estate career. Now I’m a successful Realtor® in Las Vegas, Nevada fueled 100% by word-of-mouth referrals from happy clients.
How did I go from Euclid, Ohio to the City of Las Vegas with a population of two million? After a 20-year career as a paralegal in Ohio, a change in personal circumstances prompted a move to Las Vegas. I worked as a paralegal for a Fortune 500 company, handling International Patents and Trademarks.
But a curve in the road led me to a new career. I passed my Real Estate Salesperson’s exam on the first try and never looked back. When I became a Realtor® to help people find their forever home, I found my forever career; and my voice as an advocate for homeowners and property rights.
My paralegal career prepared me perfectly for my second career. In today’s litigious society, it’s imperative to be diligent in handling the legal paperwork generated by a real estate transaction. I can read body language, and I know by the tone of voice or expression when my clients fall in love with a home. When they’ve found ‘the one,’ that’s when I change from being their matchmaker to their wedding planner and ensure that their transaction proceeds without a hitch!
A trade mission to Dubai gave me the opportunity to take my dream trip. I jumped at the opportunity to go back a year later as one of Nevada’s Ambassador to Dubai. Today, I help people find the ‘one’ whether it is residential or investment property locally in Las Vegas, in another state, or across the globe.
Clients love that I’m a good listener, that I have integrity, and understand confidentiality. They know they can trust me to get things handled – like the time I waited three hours for a local locksmith for my client, who was in another State.
I love to work, and to learn. I’ve earned many professional designations and I’ve developed strong professional relationships domestically and internationally that enhance the services I provide to clients. (See below).
Spending time with my grandchildren is my favorite way to unwind. I’m very much a sports fan – with the Cleveland Browns, Indians and the CAVS top of my list. And of course our very own Golden Knights Hockey Team here in Las Vegas!
