I've invested in Real Estate since 1997, but decided to take a more active role as a Realtor in 2006. I am a WHC (workforce housing certified) agent that works directly with civil servants and those in entry level jobs to help them reach their goal of home ownership. I'm certified through the National Association of Realtors as a short sale and foreclosure resource (SFR). Recently obtaining my CDRS (Certified Default Resolution Specialist) which helps those who may possibly be facing foreclosure. I have always chosen careers that are directly related to helping the community. Before real estate I loved working in the dental field for over 20 years. As a Realtor you MUST love people and be willing to, many times, put their interests before your own. As a wife and mother I know all too well the importance of both.
