I love being a Realtor. Often families never believed they can own a home, so when I am able to explain the possibilities it motivates them to --REACH! Helping with either the first purchase or working with experienced buyers or sellers is a pleasure ---people just need someone they can trust. I've been blessed to learn a lot through education & training, but mostly trials-by-fire! First, I have professional experience as a "subject matter expert" for several professional licenses with the Dept. of Business & Professional Regulation. There, I learned that my personality and character are those of an entrepreneur. I was given the difficult task of dealing with difficult people, so being an effective communicator is tantamount in resolving problems without intimidation especially whereas money and livelihood is concerned. Simply put, "I Care". As a single mom, I developed a talent of recognizing opportunity and creating money making ideas in a matter of seconds. I am very passionate when I set my heart toward an expected end --quitting is not an option. I am not afraid to take risk and when I believe in my efforts because hard work is not conditional, it is my way of life. I raised two children alone, worked and completed college while they were in elementary school --so self-belief and discipline is my personal banner. It’s not bad to have respectable pride --so once I was only hopeful they would finish high school and get a job. Now, both have Masters Degrees! -God Really is Very Good! But, my life does not stop there! I also serve as the Business Development Specialist at Florida A & M University, Cooperative Extension Programs Office as Extension Agent. With more than 25 years of experience in program development, small business education, financial management, business plan writing, and consultant I've been successful in helping clients write business plans or obtain licenses to start or expand a business. *Certified Network for Teaching Entrepreneurs (NFTE) Instructor, and or Boards for Havana Community Development Corporation and Havana Main Street; and Graduate of Leadership Gadsden Class - 7; and Epsilon Sigma Phi Extension Professional Organization Member Ask me, I’ll answer!
