What do you do now and what are you planning for the future?

How do you unwind from a busy day in real estate? I like to cook, read and spend time in my pool or yard, but the most important thing to me is to spend time with my family –   my husband Doug, my daughter Jaymi, my son DJ and my 5 year old granddaughter Rhyan. 

Favorite book or author:  Janet Evanovich – her Stephanie Plum series makes me laugh out loud. I love to read but I like light, fun reading.

Rules to live by in business:  “There is no substitute for hard work,”  Thomas Edison

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead) who would it be and where would you go?   (I don’t have a response to this one..)

What is your dream job? My dream job would be to not have to work and be independently wealthy but since I don’t foresee that in my future, I think I’ve already found my dream job – I’ve been at SWBR for 33 years so it must be pretty great!
