I often think what significance do I have on this earth? The biggest significance you can have is by helping people! I have the mindset there is a solution to every problem! This has fueled my passions in bettering the lives of others; it allows me to get up each morning feeling empowered knowing the positive impact I can have!
I'm a former graduate of Radford University College of Business and Economics and obtained a bachelors degree in business. I was fortunate enough to learn a great deal about real estate in my past career working for Wells Fargo and First Citizens Bank. I began my career consulting with thousands of people that had difficultly paying their debt; it became a very rewarding career due to the fact I was able to save many from going into foreclosure or fling bankruptcy.
Outside of the bank, my hobbies in Real Estate started at the age of 22. I bought my first foreclosure and was able to flip the property making a good amount of money. I had spent a great deal of time studying the housing market in each specific location I wanted to buy in. I used those funds to purchase a second then third property, always focusing on the best market location first then finding the bargains within those locations second. This has lead me to Specialize in real estate investing opportunities such as foreclosure sales, flipping properties, and purchasing of long term and short term investment/rental properties for income purposes!
In the years in banking, I managed several branches focusing on improving the financial situation for both small businesses and people. I consulted with customers and managed their debts and retirement assets; many times I was able to have a huge impact saving customers hundreds of thousands of dollars! I hired, coached, and trained employees these same concepts which lead me to an Assistant Vice President role at First Citizens Bank. I was able to use my experience and education to help the lives of many and further stimulating the local economy.This further gained my knowledge and understanding on commercial leasing and purchasing.
I am now a full time agent serving buyers and sellers in Charleston, Hilton Head, and Bluffton, SC. I also belong to a national network of realtors and lenders and I can help people before they decide to move or sell their home nationwide! My experiences have given me the skills and awareness on where to buy properties with instant equity for both residential and commercial real estate. In my role as a Real Estate agent, I am completely responsible for best assisting the customer; turning the biggest expense of peoples live's to a well sought out investment is what I do!!! It also takes knowing the underlying facts prior to negotiation, this allows me to be great at negotiating and a top realtor!
