First, let me say I am thrilled to finally be a member of Active Rain!! I have heard so much about this site from a few of my co-workers and now that I am actually apart of this community makes extremely excited!!
Let me tell you a little about myself. I am a 28 year woman that recently wed my college sweetheart:) I currently reside in Los Angeles County where I have lived my entire life. I attended Cal State Northridge where I earned my B.A. in Psychology. After I graduated instead of using my degree I decided to take a different route and headed into the Real Estate Industry. I guess you can say its in my blood. My father is an active Real Estate Broker, my aunt is a Real Estate Agent, and my uncle is Real Estate Investor so many of my friends thought it was no surprise that I follow the footsteps paved before me. I started working as a Loan Processor for my father my first year out of undergrad and I'm sure if anyone has ever worked for an immediate family member you can relate when I say it is a job in itself:) I understand they want the most from you and nothing more which why they push so that you can reach your full potential. I learned a great deal working with my dad but I wanted to go out and show him I could take what I learned from him and improve on it. Sure, I could stay where the money was good but proving that I could make a name for myself in the industry without "daddy" was important to me. So, right out the gate I landed a great job as an Account Manager where I had more responsibilities and was rewarded generously. I started as an Account Manager for about 2 years before I made a choice of testing the waters as a Loan Officer. This was the most challenging position for me because now I had to build my clientele from scratch or I wouldn't eat! I dabbled with being a Loan Officer for about a year and a half before trying my hand in actively selling real estate. I worked closely with a top real estate agent about a year before the industry took a turn for the worst. I wasn't down and out but I was down. Real Estate in where my heart is so there was no way I would just walk away as so many of my friends did when the market continued to take a massive nosedive. Luckily I was able to get a position still working in real estate but now working with Title where I am currently working to this day. I used the down time in the real estate industry to my advantage which is why I decided to become a Notary. I figured becoming a notary can be another accomplishment I could be proud of. I am happy to say that after the classes and vigorous background checks I have earned the official title of Notary Public/Loan Signer.
