I grew up in real estate in southern California. My parents were brokers and professional flippers. I started working on their homes at age 14, doing things such as painting, wallpapering, flooring, etc. I also learned how to stage homes and to effectively hold open houses. I have 12 years experience in pest control; I was a licensed applicator for sales, pests, and termites. I also have five years experience in construction, doing everything from demolition, plumbing, kitchen and bath, roofing, and drywall installation. I can do anything in or out of a house. Add to that ten years experience in landscaping, including ownership and operations of Alternative Landscaping Company in Albuquerque. Finally, here in New Mexico, I'm proud to boast over fifteen years of real estate experience.

WHY I LEFT THE BIG BOX COMPANIES:
When the real estate market bottomed out in 2008 and so many families were hurting, I chose to help my clients any way I could. Sometimes that meant not selling them a home or not selling their home, as it was not always in their best interest. When companies like Eclipse Aviation shut down and people had to relocate in a hurry, I sold their homes for a small fee to help them during this very rough time. Big box companies frowned upon staff not making full commissions and reprimanded them instead of praising them. As times got tougher, fees I paid to franchise companies became larger.
