The Fredericksburg Area Association of REALTORS® Member Spotlight feature allows members of the community to get to know each other before working with each other in a transaction. Each member answers a series of questions to reveal more about themselves as people.  It is FAAR’s hope that learning about an individual may spark connections that blossom via email, phone conversations or in-person meetings at events and classes.

Why do you love working in real estate?
I love making new connections and witnessing the joy my clients have when they step foot in their future home. Real estate is more than just selling and buying homes, it’s also about the memories and the friends you make along the way.

Favorite Work Story 
I was showing a client a home and on the listing it said “pets are friendly” I was thinking a dog maybe a cat. Well I pull up to the house and FaceTime my clients (it was a virtual showing) and we start in the front yard and make our way to the back yard to look at the pool and different fenced in areas around the property. Once we got past the pool I see a big round thing walking towards the gate. I say pretty loudly “is that a pig?” I have never seen a pig before. My client was rolling laughing watching me run on FaceTime to a gate full of joy over a pig. Overall the house wasn’t for my client but its the memories along the way that make the journey worth while.

What are you most proud of in your career?
Im most proud that I was able to become a realtor. It has been a dream come true to pass that test and join this association to get the title Realtor. My dad was a Realtor and my mom was a leasing agent. Also passing the test on my first try was the cherry on top.

Fun Fact
I love fishing, that’s no secret. However last year I entered into a fishing tournament and won biggest catfish. Another fun fact is for about one year I lived in San Jose California, and for about two and a half years I lived in Bismarck North Dakota. That is where I became addicted to fishing.
