rn: Thankful For All 3 Careers - 11/06/18 11:58 AM
 
As many of you know, real estate was not my first career.

 
The first started many years ago when my goal was to be a nurse. And I filled that goal, became a Pediatric RN and then a head nurse. Loved it.
Nursing actually prepared me for life. And it was probably the best at teaching me how to sell. Think about it. If one can convince a patient, especially a child, to take a yucky tasting medication or even an injection because it is going to make them feel better...that is a kind of selling.
If one can deal with the stress of … (18 comments)

rn: How Did You Get Into Real Estate? - 07/01/18 06:52 PM
 
When meeting up with a friend from high school, I was asked to share my journey of becoming a Realtor® 
 
Real estate was not my first or second career.
 I started as a Registered Nurse and then a porcelain artist making custom ceramic pieces for designers, home owners and even agents to give as house warming gifts.
 
 
Then there was a car accident... I was rear ended while driving and told not to lift more than five pounds. Since a box of clay weighed 50 pounds.. there would be no more ceramics for awhile. 
 
 
Someone suggested a real estate course and  I signed up...just to
"tide me over"
until I … (8 comments)

rn: Don't Say Anything - 01/03/18 08:51 PM
 
 
Received a call this week from a  potential client who was careful about answering any of my questions.
When I mentioned that whatever we spoke about was confidential...this person was at ease and able to open up.
 
 
They did not have to ask 
 
 'Please Keep This Confidential.'
 
 
 
 
As a former Registered Nurse, I take confidentiality serious. 
Not too long ago, a friend of mine was quite upset  because I did not let her know that her family member had purchased a property with me.
  My response to my angry friend.
It was not my place to share that confidence. 
 
No, I did not sign … (10 comments)

rn: Please Keep This Confidential. You Don't Have To Ask! - 07/26/14 12:36 AM
Please Keep This Confidential
 
You Don't Have To Ask!
 
A call received this morning was a referral from a mutual friend. This potential client was guarding her words not wanting to share any information and asking... 'Please Keep This Confidential.'
 

 
As a former Registered Nurse, I take confidentiality serious. You don't have to ask.

Not too long ago, a friend of mine was quite upset  because I did not let her know that her family member had purchased a property with me.
Her niece and I worked together.  My response to my angry friend. It … (64 comments)

Do You Have Any Designations?
 
 
Do you have enough to make alphabet soup?
 
                                                             The alphabet soup after my name can be confusing but 
there are a couple of letters you do not see. They  refer to part of my life that influenced who I am today and how I work with my clients. Those letters are…R.N.                                                                                                    In a previous life I was a Registered Pediatric Head Nurse at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore.     The skills I learned in my nursing career are at the core of who I am today.

Why I Chose Real Estate...It Really Was an Accident!
 
As a little girl, I only wanted to be a nurse so I could take care of my daddy. My mom worked 7 days a week in our restaurant but I spent most of my time with my dad. He was a diabetic, among other things, and I used to give him his insulin shots. Now this doesn't sound like a big deal but you have to understand he passed away before my ninth birthday. See if I was a nurse, I could have saved him. We used to go for … (29 comments)

Many of you know that I was a Registered Head Nurse in one of my former lives. Two Letters You Don’t See 
This is not my story but one I did want to share with as many people as possible. Even though you have read this, it is worth reading again and sending to your family, friends and clients. I think we may be able to save a few lives by getting this nurse's experience out to our community.

rn: Triumphant Survivors - 02/02/09 02:18 AM
Many years ago I was privileged to hear a speaker who made an impact on me. Ann Kaiser Sterns is the author of numerous books, including Coming Back: Rebuilding Lives after Crisis and Loss, published in 1989. She worked with a large group of people who had been through tragedies ranging from death, divorce, and illness, to many other life time events. Each one went through their horrible event, grieved, mourned, and experienced all the other emotions of a devastating situation. And each had a personal outcome that Sterns used to sort them into three separate groups.
The first group went through the tragedy … (37 comments)

rn: My Best Close Ever and Forever - 08/03/08 01:24 AM
This is a love story… so how do I relate it to blogging and real estate? I guess you could call this the “take away close.”
When I was very young and very single I was working at the hospital with a friend named Sandy, who was very bright and very cute. She too was a registered nurse just like me. Sandy came in one day and said “I’ve got someone really special that you have got to go out with.”
Well I had a policy back then: No Blind Dates. My social calendar was full. I said to Sandy, "If he’s such … (99 comments)

rn: Lightning Speed Listing...Type E Style - 08/10/07 01:18 AM
Some days it just all comes together, and it feels soooo good! A couple of days ago I got a call from an agent who works at a retirement community in Florida. She was hoping to improve a situation for sellers who are moving into the community down there. This agent has always referred to someone else in the Baltimore area, but these sellers were not impressed by his service and lack of follow up - the house had already been on the market for 92 days. The agent in Florida found me on the internet, I think because of my … (18 comments)

That alphabet soup after my name can be confusing, and we’ll get to sorting the letters in a moment.
