From Preacher to Teacher to Real Estate Agent - The Journey
Hello! Here’s a little bit about myself.
I was born here in Michigan , in South Detroit. I attended School in Detroit for kindergarten and 1st grade. We moved to Warren when I started 2nd grade. When I started middle school we moved to West Bloomfield. I moved quite a bit. I made friends pretty easily and learned a lot with each move we made.
My grandparents came from overseas. My Grandfather's family was from Scotland and England. My grandmother's family is from Ireland. Even though it was mainly my mother and I growing up, business seems to run in the family. My mother was a paralegal for 48 years. Later in life I discovered that I have 6 half brothers and sisters. My father was Palestinian and they were all raised Muslim. Interestingly enough all of them have a background in big sales and banking. I find it funny how much you can be like someone you don’t know.
I have a diverse background and education. I have a bachelor's in Social Work & Human Services. I emphasized working with children and adults with special needs, in fact I still teach in the mornings. After taking a small break from school, I decided it was time to go back to church.. Later I became a Lutheran missionary and served as a missionary in Israel, Egypt, & Cuba. I received my Master's in Theology while living in Ohio. After that I served as a youth pastor for 18 years. I moved back to Michigan and I decided I needed a change of pace.
I'm a certified teacher, and I started teaching. I became the Education Director of a school.
My life changed, so I reached out to learn real estate, but I felt intimidated by the
all the studying for it. I wound up passing my exam the first time, and started working in real estate. I joined Pretty Home Realty. I felt like they were persistent in encouraging me'
.They provided the training I needed. Many agencies don't have the things you really need to be successful.
I love that we all work together as a team, there's no competition. I have support. We all work together to make things happen with a common goal of helping our clients. This helps me help my clients feel heard. My clients goals are my goals! I want them to achieve their goal of home ownership.
I’m from Detroit, I lived in Warren, West Bloomfield, and now I live in Troy. I know these areas. These are popular areas people like to look in, and I know these areas well. I know the market well. Tell me your goals! Let me help you achieve them. Let's do what we need to get you ready!
Give me a call or text me! I want to help your dreams come true. Let's make it happen! I teach in the morning, but text me anytime! We all have crazy schedules so let me work with you when you're available. I always make time for you because your are important to me.
