Besides Real Estate, I can honestly say that golf is my passion. When you work 12 hours a day like I do, the phone constantly ringing, it's necessary to give yourself time for a hobby or an outlet. Outlet malls are good... but for me golf is my favorite kind of outlet.
Golf is the time that I'm able to spend time as close to nature as possible. I can experience lush green grass, beautiful flowers, trees, and wildlife. While golfing, I have seen everything from herons to llamas, and coyotes as well as a goose giving birth on the golf course. Golf is the time I can laugh with my friends, and spend quality time with my husband. Golf is also the time I can be without a phone, Lastly, golf is the time I even get some level of exercise and have fun doing it.
The game is both challenging and frustrating at the same time. If you get to know me, you will know that I love challenges. Just like I enjoy finding the perfect home for each of my clients or selling a home in the shortest amount of time for the highest price, I love the challenge to develop the perfect, consistent swing. Unfortunately I'm far from that level now.
