Like. You Know. Me. 

 

What a fun way to get members to open up and write about themselves and show off the areas where they reside. I enjoyed pulling from past memories, wishes and dreams while appreciating being present. Enjoy!

 

1. What was your first job and what did you learn from it?

I was a self-starter, mowing lawns at 10 years of age. Learned a solid work ethic and gained the rewards of a job well done.

 

2. How long have you been in the real estate or related service industry? 

I have been in the industry for 20 years. Started out as an Assistant Director of Advertising and Marketing for a large home builder. 


3. What is your biggest fear and what have you done to try to conquer it?

Public speaking. Joined organizations where I had to speak. I prefer small, intimate gatherings or being another person in the crowd.

 

4. What would you do if you knew you would not fail?

Succeed!

 

5. What is a habit you would love to eliminate or change?

Trusting that other people share the same, straightforward work ethic.

 

 

6. What is your favorite meal (forget about calories or what you shouldn’t eat)?

Eating grilled lobster with melted butter cooked by Chef Michael.

 

7. What is something you wish you’d done?

Work for Hallmark Greeting card company. It is no longer a desire though, am where intended!


8. Who has been most influential in your life? 

When younger, my grandpa Henry. Currently, my husband. He has always supported and encouraged me to succeed!

 
9. What are your favorite business-related books?

Who moved my cheese? How to Win Friends and Influence People

 
10. Other than business books what are your favorite things to read?

Humor infused books, Thrillers, Children's books to the Grandbabies

 
11. What are your top 5 favorite movies?

White Christmas, Fried Green Tomatoes, The Green Mile, Some Like it Hot, Steel Magnolias

 

 

12. If I came to visit your city for one day what is the one thing I must do or see? 

Visit or Hike a State or National Park

 
13. If I came to your city to visit for one day what is the one restaurant you would recommend?

Capelletti's in downtown St. George

 
14. If I was going to relocate to your area what advice would you give me that is unique to the area?

Take advantage of the great outdoors year 'round. There's something for everyone!

 
15. Do you have any special talents? 

I dance like no one's watching and create the designs for all my greeting cards for business and special occasions!

 
16. Do you have any quirks?

Left handed, ambidextrous and geographically challenged


17. What is your best character trait? 

Honesty 


18. Have you ever done anything you would never do again because it was too hard or too dangerous? 

Turn off the truck to save gas and almost run off a cliff because it had automatic steering & brakes that worked when the engine was running, not so much when off.

 

 

19. What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?

Spend time in the garden with My Honey, golf with My Honey and enjoy music at the Silo with family and friends

 

20. If you could live anywhere in the world where would you want to live?

Right here, where we have created beautiful garden spaces and turned a grain silo into an outdoor entertainment area complete with stage for live bands. We have been stay-cationing for several years.

 

21. What is something that we don’t know about you that would surprise us? 

I was in a few television commercials for a local Napa Auto Parts store in Glenwood Springs, Colorado in my 20's.

Am also loyal and love with the important people in life, with all my heart, Brian England. Once someone intentionally breaks my trust, it is really sad...for them!

It is my favorite Nina Hollander, Broker! The chicken piccata is a-m-a-z-i-n-g, not on the menu and made occasionally. My Honey is a good cook as well!

It probably did have something to do with it Eileen Burns. We were Michael Waltrip fans prior to becoming Kyle Busch fans...vroom...vroom!

Learning  about each other is always interesting!  I'm not surprised you wanted to work for Hallmark to design greeting cards - after all, you do a great job now!  You have so much abundance around you that it's easy to see you enjoying your spaces and places with "your honey!"   Great entry :)

Hi Wanda loved reading your post!  This is so you!

You were already famous - WOW!  That was a surprise!  And one of these days I'll get up there to experience that infamous silo too!  Girl - you so rock it out!  Love ya!

Where did you live Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker? We must have passed one another a few times way back then! Loved my time there but moved after having children. Would love to see you here and we'd treat you and Gary, well!

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker

I lived in Eagle and Edwards and my office was in Eagle. I went to Glenwood typically about 2 to 4 times a week to play racquetball and swim.  I lived there a total of about 5 years and then we moved to Phoenix.  I know that for sure my dear - very well! As we'll do for you when you're in town!

May 09, 2022 03:50 PM
Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can!

Been there and I lived in GWS from 1982 - 1995. Loved it there, never thought I'd move, took an advertising job in SLC and then transitioned here. Best decision I ever made! ☺️

May 09, 2022 06:00 PM
Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker

Wow we were there at the same time! I was there 81 to 85!  Woo Woo! We probably did run into each other!

I love you too BB. As a teen, my dad let me borrow his truck only if I promised to replace the gas that was used. We went way up onto the canyon to a kegger, then I turned it off to save gas, Candice A. Donofrio! LOL
