As I write this chapter of my journey, I reflect on the twists and turns that have brought me here.
It all started when I had to close my beloved home healthcare business.
I felt like a failure, asking myself, "What's next?"
With a 3-year-old son who rarely saw me, I craved a better work-life balance and financial stability.
In April 2016, I obtained my Realtor license, setting off on a path to help others find their dream homes.
I worked with a diverse clientele, exploring various real estate strategies.
But it was a particular family that ignited my passion for what I do today.
Meet Jake and Cara, a young couple with two kids, navigating the challenges of the COVID era.
The world of buying and selling homes shifted from in-person to virtual.
A year before they approached me, Jake had graduated from college and started his career.
He and Cara had bought a small first home, and they were bursting at the seams.
The kids' rooms were cramped. Storage was a joke.
There was no space for Jake's work-from-home setup or Cara's creative projects.
Every inch counted.
Their dream of harmony between work and home life seemed distant.
Their new life beckoned them toward a larger, more modern home.
But the competitive market made them hesitant.
