My JOURNEY started four years ago…
Four years ago, I was in a horrible accident. I was stuck under my car for two hours. In those moments, I had a lot of time to think, ponder, pray and of course, scream for help. In that moment, I remember praying to my Aunt (my angel). I said, “Please let me live, I have so much to do with my life. I promise to make a list and do it all. My baby needs his mom.” After three cars passed me, two girls heard me screaming and stopped and called 9-1-1 and my dad. I was relieved. I thought I was paralyzed, luckily I was not. I was life flighted and I ended up with a broken spine, spliced liver and spleen, broken wrist and many, many scrapes and bruises were the extent of my injuries.
After coming home after this horrible accident, I spent most of my time recovering and going to rehab, but I still had sat down and made the list of all the things I wanted to accomplish in life. I still have a long way to go, but the top three get my real estate license, buy my dream building, and spend more time with my child.
I started selling real estate three years ago. I love everything about real estate — the excitement, the learning, the get up and go life. EVERYTHING. I love helping buyers, sellers, renters, and investors find their homes. It is such an enlightening experience and every situation is a different one. I enjoy navigating the challenges, wins, losses for my clients, but mostly wins. This career is challenging, but so, so rewarding.
In fact, my love for real estate inspired me to make a BIG decision. If you know me well, you may have already heard that I purchased an old building in my hometown. If you haven’t heard and want to be on this journey with me, PLEASE join me, through this blog. It’s 215 Main in Wellington. It’s a warehouse space that served as an old dairy store, a bakery, and so much more. Some people in my community didn’t have high hopes for the space and it sat vacant for a long time. I just couldn’t sit back and watch that happen, so I bought it and it’s my goal to strengthen the heartbeat of downtown by pouring into it, and watching it grow all over again. With a little (okay, a lot) of elbow grease and a big vision for this small-town gem, I have been working every spare moment I have into reforming this property into what I KNOW it is capable of. In between showings, you can find me there knocking down walls, selling old antiques, and uniting other small shops in the community through hard work.
This year, I am a homeschool mom. I think we chose to homeschool this year because of the unknown. It has been a journey with a lot of laughs and some tears. I am a mother, first. Keeping my son at home was not an easy choice. As a work from home mom, he has adjusted quite well. Some days are more challenging than others, but Bean is an independent learner and it has been exciting to see him grow.
