How did you get started in real estate? I had a career in retailing for about 10 years, selling cosmetics, jewelry and shoes. I loved working with different types of people and helping them. Eventually I felt that if I could sell something with a higher price tag, such as cars or homes, I could earn a larger fee and also help people through one of the most important decisions of their life. I chose to get my real estate license.

How long have you been with the current company? This is my 22nd year in real estate, I left my present company for eight years to work with a manager I deeply respected. I returned to Weichert, Realtors upon her retirement.
