I have been involved in the Real Estate Industry off and on for 20+ years. I earned my license in 1992 and worked as a full-time agent until 1996. I had the urge to travel and thought that getting paid to do it was the way to go, so I took a few years to work as a flight attendant. I really enjoyed working in the travel industry, but real estate is in my blood and I came back to it for good in 1999.
I currently work in the "family business". My mother, Tish Lloyd, is a Broker Associate with Wilmington Real Estate 4U. I handle the paperwork, scheduling, marketing, photographing and general schlepping around for her. She's a great Mom, and a so-so Boss. Notice I capitalized that -- she'll be reading this and she's big on titles!
I'm kidding. We have a good time, we both love helping families buy or sell their properties. It's fun and rewarding. Getting to do something you love, in a place you love, is a pretty great way to earn a living!
I have a 7 year old daughter and I spend a lot of time volunteering at her school. If someone had told me I would one day be a PTA Mom I would have fallen over laughing. But it turns out, I like it. I like giving back to my community in many different ways, and being able to help children is one of my favorites. Plus, I think being around all those kids keeps me young, they are so much fun and I learn just as much from them as they do from me. It's really a great way to spend a few hours a week.
