After 35 years in real estate, 3O of which was spent training real estate professionals, I get to retire. Just think, I have lived every woman’s fantasy: I have been paid to talk for the past 30 years! Now it is time to do some other things, like kayaking, sailing, painting and spending more time with family. What I am doing now besides my leisure activities are some special projects, writing, one off speaking engagements ... and, so that I don’t lose touch with you – my contact information is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I consider myself extremely lucky that I have been able to do what I absolutely love - train real estate professionals. I truly appreciate your help, support, friendship and laughter. What fun! Thank you sincerely for a wonderful career.
