Why was joining White Diamond Realty the right next step in your career?
As soon as I met Melissa, I knew there was no other brokerage option for me. At first, as a brand new agent just barely learning the ropes, I felt scared and uncertain. Quickly I realized I was surrounded by the best support system and knew that, with this team, I would be successful in my journey.

I’m very personable and determined. The biggest reward is to know I’ve made my clients experience something they will remember in a positive way.
What is the most common hurdle you see buyers encounter, and how do you help them with it?
