6 months at a Boutique Brokerage and all is well

After working for a large national Brokerage for 14 years, I must admit the move was scary for me. It was all I knew. I had planned and prepared for the worse case scenario as the result of my move. 


I have always been taught it's not the brokerage brand but the person who our clients go to. My move is proof positive this is a true statement. 


Local first has always been my passion, where my heart sets and holds steady. So I am thrilled that with my move not only can I fulfill this passion, but at the same time still give all the same services and customer care I always have and not miss a beat. 


I like when my Broker says “rubber to the road” as this is how we work at our small brokerage- we just keep working and doing what we do, but no outside pressure for other things - this has really released me to do what I love, help my clients find a home for the next stage in their life. 

What i have learned 


Sometimes less is more 

Do not sweat the small things 

Keeping focus on why you do what you do is very important 

Sometimes going back to basics takes you 3 steps forward 

Making time to enjoy life makes you better at your professional life
