Tell us a little bit about you and your background. How long have you been in the industry?
I’m originally from the Philippines. I was born there, but I came to the U.S. when I was three or four years old. I moved around a lot to different states but I always came back to Colorado. So I consider myself a Coloradan. I’ve been in the industry for about two-and-a-half years. Before that, I was a stay-at-home mom, and I ran a side business as a makeup artist. I had always wanted to do real estate, so took a leap of faith and pursued my dream- since then I’ve been at Peak, I’ve been very successful!
What drives you to be the best at what you do?
It’s the passion. I love helping families get into their homes – whether it’s a new lifestyle that they’re looking for to fit their needs or anything else that they desire. My passion in this industry is to help and serve.
Being a realtor means that you have someone dedicated to finding clients the right home, negotiating on their behalf, and making the process as easy as possible – because it’s one of the most stressful and emotional times you’ll have. I’m dedicated to making that process as easy and as streamlined as possible for them.
In today’s market, why is it important for a buyer or home seller to use a realtor to buy or sell a home?
People think that the home buying process is easy; they see shows on TV and think its straightforward. But, in actuality, it’s a lot more complicated than that. By having a realtor, they’re able to be much more educated on the home buying process. That makes things significantly smoother – because, again, it’s an emotional time. Anything we can do to streamline the process makes things easy.
Colorado is great! With mountains and city life; a lot of different people are moving here. and it’s growing so much, so new cultures and new people to meet everywhere.
What’s one fun thing about you?
So, I’m known as the “unicorn realtor” in Colorado! As I said, purchasing or selling a home is a big deal- whether they’re selling their home that they lived in for 30 years or they’re purchasing a new home for the first time. Everything is very emotional, my mission is to make it very smooth and seamless as possible. So I like to try to make the end of the process very fun for my clients – so I bring in a unicorn balloon to all of my closings to celebrate!
