I was never going to be a 9-5 person sitting at a desk. I wanted to love my job – walking hand in hand with people going through happy times – along with having a flexible schedule. Real estate has given me that opportunity!

Jessica Gilmore

Anniston, Alabama

I left the legal profession, knowing that I didn’t want to sit behind a desk the rest of my life, and I liked the thought of having flexibility with my children. A month into being an agent, I had my first contract, which really lit a fire under me to continue. I had that sense of fulfillment and that I was good at helping my clients. I love helping others.

Nicole Dudley

Southern Indiana/Kentucky

I left the corporate world because I was bored of the same routine day after day. My dream job was being able to give back to my community. Now, I’m getting families a roof over their head, and getting income, which is a bonus.
