Sometimes we just have to start over. When going back into real estate a few months ago, I joined a “team” where I thought I would comfortable. I thought I would be just selling homes and strictly working with buyers. I love all of it, but working with people is the best part of real estate. You get to meet people from all walks of life.
I am a happy, but calm person and loud explanations just don’t resonate well with me. I discovered that discussions in this manner no longer worked in my life, so I have taken off the hat of a team, pictured above and moved on to do my own thing in my own happy and calm manner.
The umbrella is gone and I am going to have a great time “out in the rain” growing my real estate and interior design business. Hopefully people will understand and appreciate the benefits that come from working with not only an experienced real estate broker with high ethical standards, but with a professionally experienced interior designer.
Having designed and built four homes for myself and as spec homes, I understand the process of building and construction. Having designed those homes from the ground up I know what it takes to make a space work. Teaching for eight years at The Art Institute of Seattle helped me learn how to share knowledge with other people. Publishing a book taught me organizational skills beyond the norm. (Please check out “Drafting for Interior Design” at Amazon and many other sources.) Working with clients the first thing I always remember is listen to what they want, not what I want.
Not only as an interior designer, but as an artist the proper use of color fascinates me and would love to help my clients work beyond the colors you see in so many homes to one that sings to them.
So here I go and here is the first post card I will be sending out to anyone and everyone I can think of. Please send your address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be on my mailing list.
Cheers to new beginnings!
And by the way every client buying or selling a property with me will receive a original hand drawn for you from your favorite angle of your new or old home so you have it for loving memories. Here is one I recently sent to Australia.
