Q: How did you hear about AHFA programs?
A: I first heard about the Step Up program from a great loan officer in the area, Diane McAlister. I have been encouraging clients to discuss all of their options with their lender since I first found out about the programs you offer.
Q: What do you think is the biggest benefit of Step Up?
A: The best benefit from the programs is the extra buying power my clients receive. In some cases, my clients might not have had a chance to buy a home without the programs offered by AHFA.
Q: What do you enjoy most about your job?
A: I enjoy helping my clients overcome obstacles and achieving their homeownership goals. The most rewarding aspect of my job is handing the keys to a new home to clients who thought that they would never have their own home.
Q: What do you think makes you stand out from other Realtors?
A: I have great resources and a great company to work with. I believe knowledge is power in this business. I enjoy learning new things and trying new software. With today's market changing daily, a Realtor must adapt and learn to better educate our clients. I feel you are doing a disservice to your clients if you don't. Realtors are teachers and guides to helping clients with one of the most important investments of their life. I take that very seriously.
