Realtor®, Christmarr Properties
Number of Years in the Industry
Why do you love working in real estate?
My family has been in real estate my entire life. My father and uncle run a construction company so I have had a chance to see the entire real estate process from development, building, to closing. To me it is incredible to see how many moving parts there are and all the individuals involved. We all make a living just on a portion of the timeline. From builder, to contractors, to lenders, to settlement companies, and so many more. But what I love the most (from being on the residential side) is you get to be a part of the purchasing journey for your clients. They have worked years to get to this point and you get the chance to make it happen for them.
Favorite Work Story
My favorite story happened this year. I joined the Young Professionals Network this year and got to meet some incredible people from REALTORS® to the team at the Association. Myself being the listing agent I got to work with the current chair of YPN who represented the buyers. It was the first time I worked across the table with an agent I knew. Needless to say, the transaction went very smoothly and both parties are very happy.
What are you most proud of in your career?
It was probably my first transaction which was a rental property. It was also my first listing and was in North Stafford. I probably called my broker every day to make sure I was doing and saying the right thing. But that transaction gave me the confidence on the next ones. And that even if you jumping into a new industry, product type, or area there is always a way to figure it out.
Went to my first Washington Nationals game earlier this year.
