How did you get here?
I started my career in real estate as a leasing agent for Campus Lodge in Tampa, FL, which was one of the largest apartment communities for the University of South Florida Students. From there, I transitioned to the luxury multifamily market as a leasing professional for almost two years. Upon mastering the role as a leasing professional, I sought out management opportunities and became a property manager with one of the top, private-owned, property management companies in South Tampa. Over the course of my career, I gained a lot of peers within the real estate industry, from residential to commercial. Two of my good friends worked in the commercial real estate industry, and they provided me with a wealth of knowledge and insight in CRE, which piqued my interest very much. As I was completing my bachelor's degree in Marketing, I also obtained my real estate license in Florida. For a short period of time I worked in residential sales, before deciding that I wanted to pursue a career in CRE. As I did more research on the industry, the top brokerages, and spoke more with people within those industries, I was sold! Upon achieving my bachelor's degree, I applied to work in the CRE field, and here I am today!
Tell us something we didn't know about you?
I have eight siblings, four brothers and four sisters. I was the baby for a long time, until this little guy (who I love dearly) came along and stole my shine. I no longer receive the baby-girl treatment.
