What made you decide to become a real estate agent?
"I decided to become a real estate agent many years ago. I recently (2017) had a talk with my baby sister Tawanda about doing something that involves in helping others. I couldn’t attend the required classes until Jan. 2018. I attended Martin and Fellows Real Estate School. I completed the class in March 2018. I went to take the state real estate exam in April and passed it. (What an exciting day that was!!) Then decided to join Camelot Properties with Dustin Woodley.???????"
