How did I get started in real estate, anyways?

Welcome to a tale of unexpected turns and thrilling real estate adventures. I'm Laurie, once an aspiring pediatrician, now a master of the real estate realm. This isn't just another career change story; it's a journey of finding passion in the most unexpected places.

So, medical school and I were like a mismatched pair of socks. I was all in for the excitement, the constant learning, even the stress. But, when it came down to the nitty-gritty – you know, the blood, the high stakes of life and death – I realized I might be barking up the wrong tree.

Enter real estate, stage left. I thought, "Hey, what's a more relaxing career change than the tranquil world of property dealings?" Oh, how little did I know. Turns out, real estate is less of a quiet stroll in the park and more like a high-speed chase through the city – and weirdly enough, that's exactly what I needed.

Instead of diagnosing illnesses, I'm now diagnosing property potential. Instead of surgical tools, I arm myself with market analyses and negotiation tactics. It's a different kind of thrill, one where the stakes are high, but in a “Will they love this quirky kitchen?” kind of way, not a “Please don’t pass out on me” way.

And you know what? This chaotic, unpredictable world of real estate fits me like a glove. It’s fast-paced, every day brings a new challenge, and the satisfaction of finding someone their perfect home is unbeatable.

So why did I become a real estate agent? Because sometimes, the best decisions are the ones you never saw coming. I found my passion in the chaos of contracts and closings, in the smiles of clients finding their dream homes, and in the satisfaction of turning a stressful process into a memorable journey.

If you're looking for someone who's not afraid to dive into the chaos to find your perfect home or get the best deal on your sale, I'm your Realtor. Let's navigate this wild real estate market together - with less blood and more coffee!
