Growing up I have always had an interest in property. My dad is the type of person to have 100 projects going on at all times, building new pens, adding on little additions for a pool table or wood stove, making a decorative fence around a circle drive all just to dress a piece of land up. We spent so much time clearing brush on new lots and filling roll away bins full of trash to clean a place up.
I have seen some very cool transformations on land and what can be done, it is always so interesting to see two different looks/styles from two different people on the same house. That is probably why I like to watch all the home makeover shows like “Fixer Upper.” I have just always had an interest in land and that is why I wanted to get into real estate, I cannot buy all the places for myself unfortunately, so I want to help others get into their new homes and make them their own. I cannot think of a better thing to do than help people find the property in which they will create so many lifetime memories.
