My experience as Chapter Newsletter Editor
hen the President-Elect of Chapter 52 first asked me to
consider taking over the newsletter, I had no idea what I was
getting myself into. But soon, I found myself in the middle of
one of the best IRWA experiences I've ever had.
I started in real estate thanks to my father, who always had an interest in the
field and encouraged me to become a realtor. While I found real estate work
intriguing, it didn’t take long for me to realize that being a realtor was not for
me. I wasn’t, however, quite ready to give up on real estate; I enjoyed working
with mortgage companies and law offices to prepare real estate documents for
closings. That became my focus for over 10 years.
