What was the best business advice you ever received?

Always do the right thing for the customer and everything else will fall in place.

If you could choose another profession, what would it be?

I can't think of anything else I'd rather do than being in real-estate. I enjoy it every day.

What's the biggest risk you have taken in your career?

The biggest risk I took was leaving my medical sales career to stay home with the kids for a couple of years. Then, the doors opened and I started commercial real-estate and have enjoyed it ever since.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?

Sarasota/Bradenton, as we have some of the world's most beautiful beaches. The second place would be Seville, Spain, where my mother's family is from.
