How did you get started in real estate? I decided to make a complete career/lifestyle change after the birth of my son. Prior to that, I had a successful corporate marketing career and served as principal of a marketing consulting firm, which required a fair amount of travel and long hours. Initially, I was lured to the real estate profession because I could have a more flexible work schedule that allowed for more family time. Second, I had a genuine interest. My husband and I began investing in real estate and doing condo conversions. Lastly, the timing was right. The market was on the upswing, and I saw an opportunity to leverage my extensive marketing experience, general business knowledge and professional networks.
