Growing older but not up… a simple philosophy I have attempted to follow throughout my life, while still functioning as the ever-required adult.
“So let the winds of change blow over my head, I’d rather die while I’m living than live while I’m dead”
No truer words were ever written. Just because you’re getting old doesn’t mean you have to act old.
Spending as much time as possible during my teenage years on the white sands of the “Redneck Riviera” (otherwise known as the white sand beaches of Alabama and the Florida panhandle on the Gulf of Mexico), the sand, the saltwater, the lifestyle and especially the music became a huge part of who I am. I was a Parrothead (a rabid fan of Jimmy Buffett) long before that descriptive name ever existed, and I have embraced the laidback philosophy of the beach in the personal areas of my life.
Other tidbits about me… I am a Christian; married for 26 years; one son, not married yet but soon; two daughters with good husbands and only one grandson so far (need a granddaughter too) …and yes, grandchildren are the rewards for raising your children!
Why Real Estate? I had considered getting into Real Estate 20 years ago, but, doors closed to that possibility, so I pursued other things. Recent situations in life have offered me the opportunity to enter a new career and it came to me one day that perhaps I should revisit something that I have been interested in since I was a child…homes. I collected house plans, bought magazines about house plans and loved to explore homes as they were being built. So, I thought it was time to explore Real Estate again and here I am… excited at what the future holds for me. My personal integrity is important to me and applying that to this profession is also exciting and hopefully… profitable!
