To be successful in any field you have to be committed to being a lifelong learner. That applies especially to real estate as we have to adjust to the constant changing conditions. Being a minority woman in this field not only takes a lot of thick skin but it takes going to extra mile and really understanding, having knowledge and the willingness to put in the hard work to be successful.
