First job outside of real estate: I have always worked within real estate-related industries.

How do you unwind from a busy day in real estate? I never fully detach, just idling on the off hours. Time at home is critical to my success and I make sure the family has dinner together and time spent talking. All smart phones are off!

One word to describe your work environment: Organized-chaos

Rules to live by in business: Don’t take risks that will sink your ship, only those that are above the water line.

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead, but not related to you) who would it be and where would you go? My 16 year old daughter would want me to say Harry Styles. So I will. And we would go anywhere just so she can talk to him. Everything for your children.
