Backorders Moved Me Forward
 
“My path to become a realtor began at an early age.  I remember the words of my father, “Don’t work for someone else if you can work for yourself.”  His advice about the importance of being independent drew me to commission sales.  I loved the sales process identifying client’s needs and then going about the process of satisfying them.  Unfortunately, in my chosen industry of medical sales this process involved more time dealing with product backorders than selling.  When I discovered that in real estate there are no backorders, I thought I’d died and gone to heaven.  The fact that I could help the client with their most important purchase of their life added to my delight.  What lights me up about this work is knowing that I can really make a meaningful difference in people’s lives."
