Last December, Brittani Firestone turned in her police badge to embark on a career in real estate. The JP & Associates Realtor hasn’t looked back since.
“I’m really enjoying it. Every now and then, especially in the beginning, it’s been a little bit scary, but the business is coming along” she said. “I’ve gotten a lot of referrals from police friends and family, so that’s actually been quite nice.”
The idea of going into real estate has always been in the back of her mind. Firestone’s family has a construction business so she grew up around new homes. She also has a brother-in-law and a cousin in real estate well as an aunt who retired from it. Her wife is in commercial real estate, and has helped her immensely as she was getting started.
“I think overall it was an easier transition just because I did have someone at home to help me with questions and things like that,” she said.
