1991: the beginning of my real estate career.
I had the opportunity to work fall parade and was very successful as I sold 7 new builds.
Instantly I found my passion! I proceeded to take every new construction class available, diligently studied floor plans and blueprints, and with the knowledge I became a new construction specialist. Tkaczik Construction was my 1st builder, where I learned the entire building process. I transferred to Pierce Construction in the mid 90’s to learn the ins and outs to a higher end build job. Under Pierce, I trained for the (then) upcoming energy star programs. Learning the importance of tightening down a home and the value of an air exchanger—all the way to a blower door test. When Pierce decided to build only log homes, I chose to stay with my passion of framed homes and started working for Semler Homes in the late 90’s until 2007.
By this time, I have designed, construction cleaned, completed plans and specs meetings, final walk-thru’s and was even entrusted to sign for the builder at closings. My specialty during my time with Semler Homes was doing all model selections/designing and then decorating/staging for sale. It furthered my knowledge of the construction industry and being able to assist my clients thru this process with the least amount of frustration.
I know and understand the importance of a model being open and am faithful with the hours chosen. With my wealth of knowledge in the new construction industry, I am an asset to a builder in our current market conditions, being able to bring in a buyer, contract them, and assist them thru the entire building process.
