I grew up in a small South Central Kentucky town where I learned the value of a handshake meant your word, where lasting friendships were bonded over snowed in conditions, and that hard work meant, working until the job was done or until you ran out of daylight.
When I moved to California in the late 80's, I must admit that I was in culture shock. I have never had the experience of meeting so many people in such a short amount of time. Our little Kentucky town had a combined total of 7000 people. Being transplanted in North San Diego County was unnerving. I found a job, enrolled in Palomar College, and started to blend in...That is hard to do with a strong southern accent.
Most of my early twenties jobs were in various retail jobs, until I found myself working for a Husband/Wife real estate team as an administrative assistant in the early 90's. I found the non-routine aspect of Real Estate very inviting. They were very active in their Community, they knew the trends of their local market, had a flexible schedule, all the while making a good living for their family. I watched them as they grew their business and decided that was the type of career I wanted. No limitations with hard work. However, I wasn't ready to quit my "steady paycheck" Job. Years went by, while I watched my Aunt, and then both my Parents get into the Business. In 1998 I finally made the leap of faith, left my 7 year's with Wal-Mart, my steady paycheck, and my financial security behind. I enrolled in night school at Kaplan University to take my Real Estate Principles Course. For the next 19 years I sold Real Estate from Perris to El Cajon. Helping first time home buyers turn into first time home sellers. Weathered the Recession, and the changes to the Lending Industry, and finally a huge leap with a Move out of California. Now settled in a new state and working on Re-Inventing myself and my career. I am proud to say, I Have No Regrets. I love this Career! Hard work and a dedication to helping other's improve their lives is what it is all about for me. From humble beginnings to blessing's beyond measure. Life is Good!
