Ans : I’m all about helping people finding a great home for the moments of their lives in ways that are convenient and fit their busy lifestyle.

Q2 : Kindly give us a brief description about yourself (it should include your brief educational or entrepreneurial background and list some of your major achievements).
Ans : I came from the world of Information technology. Specifically, I worked in Business Intelligence, helping executives develop metrics to measure an organization’s success. My biggest wins always had one thing in common, a strong bond between the developers and the users of the metrics. The success of everything has always been facilitated by the type of relationship I had and developed with whoever I was working with and it’s the same in Real Estate.
Q3 : What inspired you to (start a new business venture) or (to make significant changes in an existing business)? How did the idea for your business come about?
Ans : Information Technology experienced a gutting of monetary resources. I was not immune to budget cuts and outsourced to organizations that I could only interact through service level agreements. I was no longer developing and maintaining relationships with people, I was managing service level agreements.
