About two years ago, I bought a small house in Arch Cape, Oregon with some of my dear friends.
It quickly became my refuge; I spent several months walking up and down the beach, pictured above, reflecting on my life and my future. Thinking back on it now, I realize that I wasn’t just walking, I was searching. I was searching for the answers to some tough questions about my career. I love the law, but after 20 years of practice, my Teflon has been worn thin by exposure to the most trying experiences of my clients’ lives.
Fortunately, my partners let me take a sabbatical over the summer – for which I am eternally grateful. I put many more miles on that beach, and I pushed myself by traveling alone to India.
This midlife soul-searching brought new clarity and perspective. I read books for pleasure, I slept in once in a while, I lost weight by walking 10,000 steps a day, and I spent time connecting with my family. I also made some decisions about my future.
My career as an engineer and lawyer has been fulfilling, constructive and challenging. But at this moment in my life, act III brings it all together – my love for people, analytics, sales, and problem-solving. Being an attorney thrusts me into my clients’ lives during their worst experiences. My goal as your real estate broker is to help you through one of your best experiences.
