It’s been 16 years since we first started our careers as Realtors©- and it has been an incredible ride so far. Real estate is a unique industry in that you become a professional as you gain experience in the field, live! Most other professions, you go to college and graduate school to gain the expertise to even begin to practice your craft.
Well, we’ve learned a lot, helped hundreds of families and practiced, practiced, practiced and practiced our craft to become the very best that we can be as Realtors©. We see our work pay off every day as we help families into their new homes, build dynamic new relationships and grow personally and professionally.
There’s a lot of work that goes into being a true professional. We strive constantly and consistently to stay ahead of the massive changes in the real estate ecosystem. We really have to think bigger, bring our A-game, stay ahead of technology and implement with training that will allow us to change and stay in front of the rest of the industry.
We believe that you can really master real estate, so we’re always studying and with that studying comes designations. We take courses to continue our Realtor® license every two years. We also went on to gain the coveted CRS (Council of Residential Specialist) and CIPS (Certified International Property Specialist) designations. The CIPS designation is one that only 3500 Realtors® have worldwide. Members of our team even hold the esteemed ‘Brokers’ designation, which requires even more advanced studies and continued training in real estate, finance, ethics and contract law.
It’s no small feat to accomplish these goals, but we love what we do, from the smallest tasks to the biggest decisions. People around us rarely ever see what’s the behind-the-scenes and all the hard work and dedication it takes to do what we do, yet every once in a while – someone notices.
We’ve Been Noticed!

The winners are published in the July issue of D Magazine and we always look forward to making the Best D Realtor list.
