Tell us about you! Where were you born, and what do you enjoy in your free time?
I was born in the panhandle of Florida in a small town called Fort Walton Beach. My father served in the Air Force so my younger sister and I grew up moving all around the country. My husband, Matthew, and I will be married for 6 years in April. In my free time, I love cooking and baking and enjoying the outdoors with our dog.
When and how did you become a part of Mark Spain Real Estate?
Matthew and I moved up to the Alpharetta area from Florida, and we joined MSRE in the fall of 2018. I actually started out in our Client Acquisition Department as an Inside Sales Associate. Over the years I have also contributed to the restructuring of our Agent Referral Department as well as established and evolved our Talent Acquisition Department.
How long have you been involved in real estate and where?
I’ve been involved in the real estate industry going on 10 years now, both in Florida and now in Georgia. I’ve had my hand in photography, field service, data input, transaction coordinating, event planning, inside sales, and recruiting.
Why Mark Spain Real Estate?
MSRE has a culture that is unmatched – the way we take care of and prioritize our people is a personal value that I am proud to say the company matches. Our firm does an amazing job of staying ahead of the trends in our industry. I have complete faith in Mark and John that we will continue to blaze trails in the years to come – and I can’t wait to be a part of the growth and opportunity!
What have you learned the most from working at Mark Spain Real Estate?
What I’ve learned the most from working at Mark Spain Real Estate is that it’s never too late to work on yourself. I have read more books in the last couple of years and taken an immense interest in bettering myself not only personally, but professionally as well. MSRE gives you the opportunity to participate in development and mentor programs, you just need to apply yourself to their resources!
What are your passions in life outside of work?
My passions in life outside of work are anything that fuels my body; whether that’s getting outside soaking up the sun, reading an interesting book, trying out a new restaurant, or spending quality time with friends and family. I’m fueled by the people and environment that I surround myself with every day.
Who inspires you in life?
My mother inspires me the most; she is the most selfless human being I know. Growing up, my father was deployed a lot and she never skipped a beat to make sure we had what we needed in addition to working a full-time job, not missing a horseback riding lesson, and keeping up with everything around the house. She always gives grace, puts others’ needs above her own, and serves herself last. I hope to be half the mother to my children as she has been to us.
Tell us about the friendships you’ve made at Mark Spain Real Estate.
The people that I’ve met at MSRE have been nothing short of amazing. There is something to be said for surrounding yourself with diverse and hard-working coworkers. I haven’t met anyone at this company that isn’t dedicated to providing an unparalleled experience to our clients and that overflows into friendships, too. It’s refreshing to be able to have people to reach out to collaborate with to bounce new ideas, grab a coffee, or try a new lunch spot.
What are you looking forward to this year?
We are expecting our first child in May this year – we are having a boy and couldn’t be more excited for this next chapter of our lives!
