Year that you entered your current field? 2009
How did you get your start in your current field?
Right after graduating college with an accounting degree, I got a great job at Deloitte in their real estate practice. It was there that I noticed my passion for commercial real estate. But I didn’t want to stay at an accounting firm. I didn’t want to count other people’s money, I wanted to make my own money! So, I went into brokerage… and I am glad I made that decision!
Who or what do you attribute to your success?
My commitment to help others – this is huge! I genuinely love helping people succeed. Its been a pulling force in my life. Especially in my business, I think that’s my competitive advantage. From buyers to sellers to other brokers at my firm. And, here’s the thing – my personal investment in others has always returned to me tenfold.
