How I got into my current profession: I was a college graduate looking for my first full- time job in 1983. While on my third interview for an appraiser trainee position at a local appraisal company, I made an offer to the owner to work for $100 a week for the opportunity to prove myself. The owner of the appraisal company said “You’re hired!” Ten years later I started my own company.
