Deeper Levels of Authentic Alignment

I’ve been a Broker in Charge for nearly ten years but until recently it was with a firm that I didn’t own.

That changed in November 2017 when McDermott Real Estate was born. It had become clear that staying with the prior firm wasn’t in alignment with my highest values and ideals, it wasn’t honoring my authentic self fully.

So, in yet another example of terrifying myself, I leapt and started my own real estate firm.

As much as it does terrify me, it’s also really exhilarating because it brings the opportunity to even more deeply align everything in my life with my heartfelt values: including honesty, integrity, respect, even humor.

I’ve found it to be true that when one major relationship shifts or ends (hey, divorce!) it brings to light a lot of other relationships for evaluation.

What I’ve also learned these past few years is that I can no longer stay small, dim myself, or sacrifice my values for the comfort or approval of anyone else. Above all else, I must stay true to me.

I don’t love sellers and listings. That may not be the “typical” real estate agent outlook but it’s mine. Aside from past buyer clients ready to sell and move up or downsize, I do not enjoy working with sellers. So I don’t have to.

I do LOVE connecting with people, listening to and learning about them, their goals and visions. Helping them achieve their home buying goals is a passion. As is empowering women throughout the home buying process whether those women are single, divorced or even married.

I’m passionate about empowering women in the home buying process. I’ve experienced it firsthand as a consumer seeing women (and their intuition and insight) not given enough/any credence.

Now that I fully get to align my business with my authentic self, I’m excited to blend empowering badassery and heartfelt connection with the home buying process even more deeply than ever before.

Onward and upward into 2018. May you enjoy a peaceful rest of this year and very Happy New Year!!!

All the Best,
