Business Philosophy

For many Agents, real estate is not the primary means of support for their household. Many have a husband or wife who is the primary breadwinner or real estate might be their second job. In essence, real estate is something they dabble in or is a way to make a little extra spending money.

Real estate is not my second job. It is my first job. I am a full-time Realtor. I support my family through my efforts as a Realtor and I am dead serious about it. If I do not work hard for you, my mortgage does not get paid and my children do not eat. That motivates me to do more each day.
