Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?

Realtors have the tendency to leave their phones on 24/7. My recommendation, if you want to be taken seriously be professional like a doctor or a lawyer have your set hours. Be available for your family after those hours and switch your phones off at night.

None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

My husband has always been my biggest advocate and greatest fan he’s always supported my choices throughout my career. A big thank you to my husband Antony.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

Not everyone gets to buy a house or can afford a home. People who have saved for many years for a down payment on their first home are the best clients. I am always so happy to help because they are the most grateful and the joy on their faces when they get to open their front door to their new home is the most rewarding.

Do you have a favorite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

“If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else” ~ Booker T. Washington.
Be kind and treat everyone you meet from the janitor to the CEO with respect.
My first job I had been working at a bank for a few years and the executive director Mr. Terry Power had seen me, a junior receptionist, he noticed something in me that not even I had realized. Before he retired he recommended me to a position way above my receptionist position which was dealing with people and helping charities by donating the banks funds. He saw that I would be great with people.

Anything specific you’d like to have mentioned in the article? 

Mindset is everything when it comes to your success and happiness. A strong mindset is the foundation to making the most out of life so that you can achieve real success.
Real success requires relentless positivity, a strong sense of determination, and self-confidence. Because you’ll absolutely experience failure. And you’ll have to face your fears and doubts head-on.
The only way to do all of this is by cultivating a growth mindset and that is exactly why mindset is everything. It all starts there.
