I grew up in a town of 600. I could call everyone by name. Lee Maine is in the woods with brooks, streams, lakes and trees . Summer was laughing called “the 4th of July” because it was so short. Winters were long and cold with lots of snow. I loved the outdoors.
I was an outdoorsy person and played all of the sports.

When I was a little girl people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I am sure you were asked the same thing.
I went to college for one year to be a medical secretary. I failed typing which is the only thing I have every used since then. I took my test on a manual typewriter. I’ll blame that.

my old real estate firm.
It was much easier to get a license then. We were also allowed to do appraisals and work as a loan officer.
I fell in love with selling raw land, camps on lakes and the people I was able to make their dreams come true. Sure, I sold houses, too, but it was really in my heart to be in the woods.

|The life of the Palm Tree|
Pure luck –I got a job at a mortgage loan processor at $600 a month. I knew nothing about processing loans but I am a good faker. (About like the time I thought it would be a good time to be a bartender. Another story ).
I got my mortgage license and over the next 30 years I vacillated between mortgages and real estate. What a rich background for my business.
Life happens again. My husband and I followed our daughter to AMARILLO Texas. Seriously? The beaches of Florida to treeless and waterless AMARILLO?
|Moving to Texas|
We moved here and the prices of houses seemed like Amarillo was just giving the houses away.
I got my mortgage license and my real estate license and played around with it some. My husband and I rehabbed a few houses and bought some rentals but I was being pulled back into “the game”.
Although I still have my mortgage license, I turned to real estate and HERE I AM! At the best company in the world with the best training and education ever. My fellow Realtors at Keller Williams are amazing to work with and with my finance background I have been able to help families get into houses that they may never have been able to otherwise.
So that is about me. I have lists of classes I have taken and certificates and awards and you name it. But who cares about that. What you need is someone that knows what they are doing.
Would love to talk to you.
