Living on Campus

          The summer I spent learning to be an amazing ESL teacher at Oxford University was so much fun, and I learned a lot about modern technology that I use almost every day. The image above is of Exeter College where we lived and had classes. It was considered part of my Dartmouth College degree for students who obtained recommendations from our Professors. We were able to use these classes as credit toward our degree.  

          Many of the skills required to succeed as a teacher directly correlate to real estate. One of the most important parts of this job is being able to explain complex information in a way that's easily understood. Listening is a crucial part of this. There is no use having knowledge of all of the properties if you aren't listening to what your client wants. Your job is to make THEM happy.

          Working as an ESL teacher was extremely rewarding look, but the love I have for viewing, staging and finding that perfect home for a family is so fun that I ultimately took the plunge and followed in my friend Christie's footsteps. I absolutely love everything about real estate: analyzing housing trends, staging homes, composing fun quizzes to narrow down a person's preferences... and the passion that I have comes out in my work. I love what I do. I provide the same work ethic as a realtor that I did as a student.
