A real estate transaction is likely the largest sale or purchase of anyone's lifetime. It is important to have someone who understands this significance and who will advocate for your best interests. As a homeowner and real estate professional, I personally understand the time, process, and importance of investing in yourself and owning a home. Here's why I hope you'll allow me the honor of consulting, negotiating, and overseeing the details of your real estate transaction:
My family has been the foundation and guiding force for me as a person and professional by instilling important morals and values. They have taught me the value of building relationships, hard work, resourcefulness, and persistence. I was born and raised in Topeka, Kansas. My father worked for the state before changing careers to become a realtor. My mother is a homemaker and was largely responsible teaching her kids to be resilient and to treat others the way we wanted to be treated. My sister is an extremely bright person who I look up to for the example she sets as a person.
From an early age, I realized obstacles were things you needed to overcome. Baseball has always been a passion of mine, however, others would tell me I wasn't good enough to compete. I was cut completely off of my high school team as a freshman. I offered to be a manager for the JV team picking up equipment and filling in when an extra person was needed. Proving my worth, three days later, I was added to the team's roster. I didn't get a chance to play regularly until I was a junior and I had made the varsity team. Those next two years I earned All-City and All-League honors.
I graduated from Washburn University and earned my Bachelors of Business Administration with a concentration in Management and Finance. While enrolled, I played baseball and earned 2nd Team All-Conference honors as a starting pitcher. Being a student-athlete was challenging and taught me how to prioritize tasks and manage my time wisely. I graduating college in the midst of a down economy. After not finding a position I desired to fulfill my personal and professional needs I accepted a job as a teller at a local bank. I was determined to work hard and earn the trust and respect of my coworkers. Within five months I had been promoted twice to a commercial credit analyst.
In 2012, I accepted a position as an accountant and moved to the Denver area. I rented an apartment for three years before purchasing my own home. During my buying process, I worked with the Paisano team that I am now so fortunate to be a part of. They got to know me and my needs and were attentive and prepared enough to adjust to the market. Let me put the tutelage I have gained to work for you.
