CandysDirt.com: So, where are you from?

CD: So, how did you get into real estate? What’s your specialty?
KB: I graduated with a degree in Graphic Design, then went back to school for insurance sales, and then computer information systems technology. I dabbled in jobs such as insurance claims processing, pharmacy technician, customer service management, payroll administration, insurance sales, and marketing/advertising for various companies. It was after all of this, that I realized that while I had a passion for sales/marketing/advertising, I needed to find a job that would allow me to combine all of this into one. So I decided to study and become a licensed real estate agent so that I could continue to use my experience.

KB: I don’t tell any one client the same thing over and over again. I am a down-to-earth, realistic, to-the-point kind of person. I am honest with my clients, and tell them the facts, not necessarily what they want to hear. “Do unto others as you would have them unto you,” right?
