Why Did I Chose Real Estate ?
Real estate was not my first or second career. I started as a Registered Nurse and then a porcelain artist making custom ceramic pieces for designers, home owners and even agents to give as house warming gifts.
Then there was the accident...rear ended while driving. After sustaining a neck and back injury, the doctors recommended surgery. Since they would/could not guarantee the use of my hands, I refused.
They advised me not to lift more than five pounds. Are you kidding? My box of clay weighed 50 pounds..no more ceramics for awhile.
During this same time, I received a "cold" call from a former nurse asking if I wanted to sell my house?
Why would she be interested ?
Because she was now a Realtor® looking for listings.
I had been helping people write ads for their homes and finding houses in the area for friends. For that service, I got beautiful thank you notes.
This former nurse told me agents could get paid and she wanted my referrals.
That same week I signed up for Real Estate course to "tide" me over until I could get back to my love of clay.
That was back in 1990 and through the years, many of my former patients, nurses, doctors, artists and owners of my artwork became real estate clients.
It's rewarding finding a custom piece of my art in a home.
My nursing background, especially the psychology, has been invaluable
handling the stress of moving.
How fortunate to combine, nursing, ceramic art and the love of real estate.
And this answers...
