It all started when I was a teenager, sneaking out the family car before I had my driver’s license. My escape from the house enabled me to see how others lived with my frequent visits to neighborhood open houses.
When I became more adventurous (and driver’s license in hand!), I would drive to San Francisco to see the more affluent, vibrant neighborhood open houses in areas that greatly appealed to me. Seeing homes that belonged to successful, affluent people gave me incentive to achieve more for myself. As soon as I turned 18, I was already working on getting my real estate license and soon after that, I was working as a loan agent. (I had to fib about my age to get the job — Come on, would YOU want a 19-year old doing YOUR home loan?)
Fast-forward to today, when I am in the stage of life where I need to give myself incentive to work harder by buying a too-big-for-me house.
Back to work now…
