Now in the second and best half of my life, I have become a Real Estate Sales Representative. I don’t just help people buy and sell homes, I connect with people to provide a unique service. I love the role I play in their lives. My current focus is Women who want to buy, sell or invest in properties.

“I always knew that I was interested in real estate, but I took a roundabout way of getting there. Real estate to me connect people to their dreams of home ownership, and I knew that I wanted to be a part of it.”  – Charlene Williams
