What do you love most about the industry?

There’s an indescribable feeling of fulfillment in guiding individuals and families through one of the most significant decisions of their lives: buying a home. The real estate market is dynamic, always keeping me on my toes. Every day brings a new challenge, a new opportunity. It’s like solving a complex puzzle that requires knowledge, instinct and perseverance. Each property is a piece of art with its own character and charm. Whether it’s a sleek modern condo or a quaint Victorian house, I love discovering and showcasing the unique beauty of each home. Real estate allows me to be my own boss. I have the freedom to set my own goals, create my own schedule, and chart my own path.

What is the most difficult aspect of your job?

As a Realtor, managing the emotional highs and lows of clients can be challenging. It’s heartbreaking to see a client fall in love with a property only to lose it in a bidding war, or to see a sale fall through due to unforeseen circumstances. The market can be unpredictable, and despite all the research and analysis, there are no guarantees. Striking a balance between personal life and professional commitments can be tough.
