I was a real estate broker in Hawaii and Washington for quite a number of years. I enjoyed the creativity and client collaboration that the real estate business provided.
I directly participated in the many facets of real estate: property valuation, sales preparation, marketing, advertising, and coordinating with the many professionals involved in every sale. Part of my job was creating flyers, postcards and other direct mailing to present the property in its best light.
I became seriously interested in web design as a career in about 2009. For some years before that, I had been updating my own real estate website, which had been designed by a professional. I decided I wanted to build websites myself.
