These last few years have been filled with excitement! I earned my real estate license in 2013 and have experienced amazing growth in business since I started practicing full time in 2014. I attribute my hard work, networking efforts, and the generous referrals from my friends, family, and clients to my success. I am very happy with this progress, but my journey to get here really began over twenty years ago.
From 15 years working as a legal assistant for law firms in San Francisco, Contra Costa, Sacramento, and Solano Counties, to five years of full-time, long-term substitute teaching with the Vacaville Unified School District, I have continued to actualize my career while raising three children to adulthood. After teaching, I enjoyed two years serving clients with nationwide financial institutions as an inside sales consultant with a local print broker, two years serving as executive assistant with The Children’s Network of Solano County, and then over a year conducting an extensive statewide research assignment with the California Research Bureau to inform our state legislators on career education opportunities in public schools. I then was hired to carry out the Vacaville City Council’s Municipal Code for public nuisance abatement, enacted due to the Housing Crisis, to fight blight from abandoned homes. When that mission was accomplished, I went over to the Vacaville Housing Authority to work with the federal Section 8 Housing Assistance Program. In 2011, when Governor Brown eliminated redevelopment funding and Vacaville experienced budget cuts, I began working with a reputable broker in Solano County as transaction coordinator. She was a fantastic mentor and that is when I really became interested and driven toward real estate sales.
I studied throughout 2012 and passed the real estate broker’s exam in January, 2013. As soon as I finished an assignment with the California Department of Education, I immediately launched my real estate business. That was in the second quarter of 2014.
