Years in real estate: 25

What real estate associations or organizations are you a member of: CREW

How have you navigated obstacles to achieve success in your career: There are many different obstacles that I have encountered over the past 25 years in the commercial real estate business. I think some of the biggest obstacles I have encountered entail time management and learning how to balance my career with my family.  What has helped me the most over the years is the ability to lean on my family for support when things get tough and staying focused on my career and personal goals. 

How do you play your strengths to your advantage in your career: The business of commercial real estate is also the business of developing and building those relationships. I consider myself to be a “people person” and I really enjoy meeting new people and place a strong importance on the long-term relationships that I have built with my clients.
By providing your clients with a high level of customer service and consistency that they can count on will set you apart from your competition.  This is what I have always strived to accomplish. 

What do you do for fun? Travel has always been a passion that I share with my husband, Sergio, and sons Nico and Lucas.  Simply spending time with my family and friends is my favorite thing to do when I’m not working.
