Tell Us a Little Bit About Yourself?
I was born in Wales, UK, and moved to the East Coast with my family when I was 13 years old. My family eventually moved back but I headed West over 20 years ago after graduating from the University of Massachusetts Business School with a BA in Marketing. I initially started my career in the advertising world in San Diego, it was really fun and exciting. I got to work on a wide variety of accounts including WD-40 (headquartered in San Diego), the San Diego Zoo, Del Mar Racetrack, and home builders and community developers.
I am extremely personable and would describe myself as an extrovert. I am a very sharp and motivated professional, not only have I run my own businesses but I have helped others in their start-up phase. I have a real passion for helping people and sharing my knowledge and skills. Whenever I meet new people, both professionally and personally, I approach with an attitude of "how can I help" and "what can I bring to the table."
How Did You Get Started in Real Estate?
I purchased my first home in San Diego at the age of 21. My father has a background in commercial and residential real estate and built our first home in Wales as well as my grandparent's and aunt's home. My Father understands the importance of investing in real estate and encouraged me to purchase property as soon as I could. I developed a true passion for real estate and worked as a marketing consultant for a well-known, successful luxury real estate team and new home builders earlier in my marketing career.
What Do You Like About Working on the De Legge Team?
Sue and Gina share the same values and business approach that I do. They are both very genuine, honest and hardworking. They have a lot of integrity and professionalism, Sue and Gina know what they are doing and they do it very well. They provide an exceptional amount of value to their clients with their strong negotiation skills, accountability, and communication every step of the way. On top of that, they are great to be around, we laugh a lot in and out of the office, always encourage each other and respect each other for the unique aspects we each bring to the team.
