Good morning Tony. I wrote in my high school yearbook that I plan on going into the real estate business. It was a no brainer for me.

Real estate is also what brought me into the mortgage business.

When I was married, my husband and I thought about doing some fix n flips.  While I was in school, it sounded like a fun career choice, and could make more than I did in Corporate life.   The rest is history!
