What are you afraid of? Gosh, so many things. The dark. Flying. Running over a person with my car (this probably fits in the “what makes me weird” category).
Funniest thing to happen during a home showing/tour? I opened the front door of a vacant house and a dead, dried up frog fell on my head. I screamed and jumped.
What is your favorite vacation of all time? Dominican Republic because it opened my eyes to the benefit of travel and going to other countries. It changed my life.

If you weren’t selling real estate you would be…… ...Yoga mom. Gym all morning, afternoons cooking and hanging with my kids.
Your worst job ever: ***censored because they are still in business*** I hate, hate, hated working there. I was 18 or 19 and quit after they paid me to cut old calendars in pieces before throwing them away so no one would go dumpster diving for their old, expired calendars. I just couldn’t wrap my mind around why someone would pay someone to do that. It was the last straw…the work environment was poor at best.
