Real estate has been something I’ve been interested in since high school. I can remember being in the car with my dad as we were on our way to San Antonio to get me moved in for college and telling him that I’d love to pursue real estate one day. It took me about 17 years to actually act on that interest though. I was working for a car dealership handling payroll for five of their lots. Hours were long, stress was high, and work was abundant. That’s when I decided to reach out to one of those childhood friends I mentioned earlier, Ashley Pena. She and I went to middle school together and to know Ashley is to love her. Even though life had taken us in different directions we always remained friends. I had been seeing her on social media living the real estate dream so I called her. We talked all evening and by the end of it I had signed up for my real estate classes and the rest is history.
