I'm sure that many real estate professionals call real estate their "passion", but what does that mean? Many years ago, I was passionate about working on houses, transforming them into a vision that I had in my head. It was hands on and the changes were visible and almost immediate. Being an associate broker is a different side of the same coin. There are no hammers, drills or paint brushes. They are replaced by emails, scans and digital signatures. I am driven to build relationships that last for years by educating, advocating for and in some cases, protecting my cients from the black holes that can crop up in what may appear to be an ordinary real estate transaction.
