Recruiting New Real Estate Team Members!

A little about me and the Home & Ranch Team...

I have been selling real estate throughout Ventura County since 2002. I actually stumbled into the business. My father died in 1999 leaving behind a very large antique collection. After some reflection, I decided to quit my stable career to become an antiques dealer.  People thought I was crazy!

I had never really thought about selling anything before jumping intp the antiques business. It was a temporary move, as I knew I would not want to sell antiques as a long-term occupation. 

Surprisingly, selling antiques was fun but not really a career. Once the collection was liquidated I opted to get my real estate license. A top Realtor in my local market said I should start walking neighborhoods to meet perspective clients. Looking back, I realize how insane that was! I was literally handing out real estate magnets on doorsteps and at high school football games. 

I specifically had no Plan B. I somehow knew that starting in real estate would likely not be easy, and if I had a Plan B I would want to fall back on it when the going got tough. There was no option other than to succeed at what I had started. Going back to my old career would feel like a failure. 

Now, with nearly 18 years in the business I understand and appreciate what it takes to make it. There is absolutely no reason why you should have to struggle the way I did.
