If you ask my mom, I sold my first home when I was 4. I pitched a tantrum and wouldn't leave an open house until my Aunt swore she was going to move in.
My first real job was in the '80s as a Wilhelmina model in New York. Food was not an option so after too many carrots I moved on to acting with a stint on Miami Vice, some B films and a Neil Simon play. I took a break in California to go skiing and eat good Mexican food and ended up in Sacramento, where I had a wonderful family and a 20+ year career in the luxury automotive business.
When I told my kids I wanted to make a career change, my oldest son said, “Mom, all you do is drag us around to open houses… even when we’re on vacation! Why don’t you just sell real estate?” So, I did and the rest is history!
