rgalesfbcardWhat do you love about your business?
There is nothing quite like Real Estate. It is a business where you can make your own hours, meet people on a daily basis, make peoples dreams come and turn Clients into Friends and Friends into Clients. I love that feeling of knowing I am there to help on what is for most the largest investment they will ever make.

What do you get out of being a member of YPN?
