Found these photos from another life, circa 1987. Remnants of an interim modeling job—a time between being a mostly stay at home mom with part-time teaching gigs and a single mom needing to bring home real bacon. How did I get into Real Estate as a career? I met a guy…(not Brian) through modeling and commercial work who suggested I look into Real Estate as a career. It was attractive to me because I didn’t want to be around just kids all the time (teaching) and I thought it would be flexible so I could still be a good mom. I also had extensive moving experience with the former Mr. and thought I could bring that to the table. The craziest part was that I had moved to Seattle with no friends or family—except the three kiddos. I got my license in one month—taking classes every night. My new Managing Principal Broker took a huge chance on me succeeding in sales because I had NO network in the area, but I turned out to have a knack and did very well. My kids might say the flexibility part was a bad assumption and I’m pretty sure they thought the phone had merged with my ear. They still have a flinch reflex when they see me on the phone.
Why did you decide on real estate as a career?
