A: I have been in Real Estate since July ’22. The reason I became an agent was to be my own boss, Have a life worth living, a legacy worth building, and provide for my family.

It allows for a higher purpose for me, as an individual.

There are so many myths going around within Real Estate and I’d like to shed light on ways to get around those said myths. The way I embody this within my community is by being active on social media by giving tips and educating.
