Why Do You Love Real Estate?

I love people, architecture, landscaping, and design. Real Estate has all of that.

Most Unique Thing You've Seen In Real Estate:

While my parents were house hunting they randomly drove by a place for sale. When they got home, my mom looked it up in the MLS book on Friday, went to go see it Saturday, and bought it Sunday. It was a partially converted hundred year old church. We moved in and proceeded to remodel/renovate it. I took off a semester of college to help and boy was it a lot of work. My room was in the choir loft and my bathroom was in the steeple. I can honestly say I used to fall asleep in church every day.
