What was your most interesting job before going into real estate?
Being a mama of 3 – most interesting and most rewarding! Working in an orphanage for special needs children in Carmen Serdan, Mexico.
A mom and homemaker. I also dreamed of working in the ER but when I realized it was nothing like Grey’s Anatomy I was no longer interested.
Get outside, spend time being silly with my kids, look for ways to help and bless others, meet friends at local coffee shops, hiking in Sedona, spa day at the Fairmont Princess, BBQ by the pool … better yet the lake, try a new recipe from one of my cookbooks, enjoy a glass of pinot or cucumber mint cocktail, plant beautiful plants that I am guaranteed to kill … but hey, I keep trying.
Being well known is great and all, but honestly, now as an adult, I would like to see my Sicilian great-grandfather again and ask him about his childhood and what it was like coming to America.
I would never disclose a secret like that … but Defalco’s Italian Deli is hands down a forever fave.
I love this community, and getting to serve its families brings my heart so much joy. Especially in this market, people need an advocate to help them navigate their options. I also appreciate the diversity it offers. There truly is no ceiling to what you can accomplish and where you can take your business. That is extremely motivating. Continuing to grow as a business to include a wide variety of real estate knowledge and services is what keeps things evolving and interesting. I also love the freedom it gives me to pick my kids up early from school to go get ice cream as often as possible. Being an available mom while pursuing my career goals is truly my definition of “Living the Dream”.
I believe I can outwork anyone when it comes to getting the job done. I believe every client, no matter the price point, deserves my full focus and attention until the job is completed. I believe in treating everyone like family and giving them the same quality of care I would expect. I aim to take such good care of every client that they, and their families, come to me with all their real estate needs for life!
Leverage your sphere of influence. You don’t need to be a good “salesperson.” Be a GOOD person, and do GOOD business. Love those in your community genuinely and know your market. Be authentic, and share your business authentically with your sphere and the right business will come to you naturally. Then be a great agent and bless their socks off! If you do a good job with each client that is put in front of you, word will spread organically.

During a showing, my buyers and I walked into the family room to find a nearly floor-to-ceiling aquarium full of thousands of cockroaches. Why?
I never imagined I would be a Realtor. I always dreamed I’d be a homemaker. However, when I found myself suddenly needing to provide for myself and three tiny incredible humans, I signed up for real estate and business school. I built a successful real estate career while being a full-time single mamma. If I can do it, so can you. It’s a fantastic career.
