"I remember one hot August day as a young boarding school teacher/coach, welcoming young men to football camp with their families. One mother had tears in her eyes when she whispered to me, "Take care of my boy" before getting in her car and driving away. It was at that moment that I realized how much trust these parents placed in my hands, and how important I was in the lives of their sons and daughters. I view my role as a Realtor® the same way: I am entrusted not only with the most important financial decision in most peoples' lives, but also with helping individuals and families find the right home, and ensuring that every part of the process goes smoothly. For me, real estate, too, is a noble profession."
