Comment On The Real Estate World
“Real Estate is the biggest sells and buys of people’s lives. Which means the transition and circumstances they are going through are typically super stressful. Whether good stress or bad or all of the above, it’s a huge deal. Having a background in extremely tough situations as a marine and police officer, I’ve got a unique way in advising clients through the thick of it, as frictionless as possible.”
