From a very early age, we spend our lives pondering and prodding over what we want to be when we "grow up". For most, it is a long journey with peaks and valleys and unexpected turns. We then think to ourselves, "I hope I am one of the lucky ones who is blessed with a career that fulfills me and makes me happy."...what a sad thought...
Since I was a Junior in high school, I knew I wanted to be an accountant. Exciting stuff...I know...My family has a history of being involved in business and finance so I thought, lets give this a go.... I graduated from Walsh University in 2010 with my Bachelors in Accounting, locked in my first role ( 6 months later) as a staff accountant for a Youngstown based accounting firm. I accepted this was going to be my life and I was happy. Six plus years crunching numbers and preparing tax returns, my "career gas tank" was far from full and I was wanting more out of every day life.
25 years old, finding my life dull, dismal and repetitive, I found myself extremely confused, a little lost, and unhappy. I would worry about, "What is my purpose in this life?" A very heavy question for anyone at any age...The only way I would find out was to pray about it and God delivered the answer in a very subtle way. The very quick version of the story is a friend suggested , as we were driving down Route 224, "You should try real estate?" Wow, what an idea and that is how it all started. A mere suggestion has evolved into almost a decade long journey and I have never been more excited to see what the future holds.
As most people know, a large part of my enjoyment comes from my career. A product of an Irish/Scottish/Hungarian make up, combined with being raised by a single mother, I really had no choice but to have a strong, unwavering work ethic and as cliche as it sounds, I had to be a strong independent woman. I would comfortably say, my work ethic defines a large part of who I am, and for that I am very proud.
My career in real estate has provided plenty of challenges and hard knock life lessons. However, it has greatly provided knowledge you would never learn in a classroom, friendships so strong I didn't know they existed, and an opportunity to help people. That is why I am here doing what I am doing. Finding a home is far more than nice counter tops and hardwood floors. Home is your sacred space to completely acknowledge your true self. Your ultimate safe space. I want to help you find your peaceful place, backed by a healthy financial investment.
