When I first got my real estate license when I was just 22-years old, I truly didn't know what I was in for. All I remember is my parents looking at me with raised eyebrows, a little shake of the head (still not sure if it was a good shake or bad shake) and saying, "Real estate can be tough."
And - imagine this - they were right!
My real estate career started in 2017 and the first two years started out slow. I was working four jobs until 2019, when I decided to turn real estate into my full-time gig. By the end of 2019, I was asked to join the #1 Team in Rockland County as the Marketing Director and Junior Sales Associate. The skills I picked up and sharpened during my time there gave me the confidence to grow my business as an independent agent.
Starting real estate at such a young age came with its challenges. However, each of those challenges came with an important lesson which I was lucky to learn in the early part of my career. In 2020 and just three years into the business, I was the youngest agent in our New City office of over one hundred agents to reach award level, and then in 2021 I was the youngest to do it again.
Since 2017, I've always made sure my business focused around one thing: educating my clients so they have the competitive edge they need whether they're buying or selling their home. My customized marketing plans for sellers has allowed me to successfully market properties in a unique light and target the ideal buyer. Homes that list with me spend a median of just 24-days on the market and close on average at 101% of asking price.
I pride myself on staying well-connected to my clients to ensure they feel comfortable and confident throughout the sometimes daunting real estate process. I'm so fortunate for the clients I've met so far who have trusted me with one of the most important things in their life - their home.
