RE/MAX Top 100 Achievers – March 2018

I still can’t believe this…found out I’m in the top 100 for RE/MAX Western Canada in the category of Residential-Individuals MTD for March 2018 from BC to Manitoba. I had set specific goals in the last 2 yrs & 4 months when I decided go on my own after learning exponentially from 2 different top producing teams in our office for combined 8 yrs. This particular achievement, whether MTD or YTD, was never in my sights. I’m grateful to my mentors, professional and personal coaches, friends, my kids for being my cheerleaders and my managing broker husband. Most of all, thank you to my clients, some of you who I have not even met in person. Thank you for your unconditional trust, the friendships and business relationships that we have developed by working together. Thank you for the privilege of working with you to assist you, in achieving your goals.
