Let's get real.

When people ask how I got into real estate, I like to joke that I'm the "typical 9-5'er who though she could do it better". But, there's a bit more to the story than that. 

 

As the US economy bottomed out amidst the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, I was accepting a full-time position at a top Fortune 500 wealth management firm. 

 

In 2011, you couldn't ask for more than a spot at one of the baddest firms on the Street, complete with a healthy 401k match, benefits, and all the potential of a high-powered finance career.

 

To me, I thought I made it. My circumstances, on paper at least, seemed like THE definition of  "success". 

After a few years, though, that shiny corporate-ladder began to feel like a slippery slope towards a life lacking fulfillment, passion, and a sense of freedom that I desperately longed for. 

My then-boyfriend-now-hunky-husband, Bryce, was beginning to question his place in corporate finance, too. And after a lot of soul searching, we found a new beginning in real estate. 

 

We didn't even look before we leaped. After our two weeks' notice, we launched our real estate business together in 2015 and never looked back. 

Currently, our days look like this...

Jetting around town as we serve our clients within our top 1% producing real estate team here in sunny Arizona.

 

All the while, I'm constantly finding new ways to share what we are learning on the ground to help lift up other real estate pros across the country. I am obsessed with helping real estate agents position themselves in such a way in their business and market that they can earn more money, work with the best clients, and love their lives while they're at it. 

 

This industry has offered us a life that I could never have dreamed of...but I remember how isolating, overwhelming, and scary it can be when you're going it alone.

When I can help other agents feel heard, understood, and empowered...
I know I've done my job.
