Nora has been in the real estate industry for over 35 years. She started as an investor, landlord, homeowner, and flipper both in Florida and Georgia until she became a real estate associate working for an office with more than 1,500 agents. In August of 2018, she became a broker. Previous ownership of three companies in diverse fields gave her extensive experience in management, accounting, team building, marketing, and sales.
Nora is also an educator, and it has instilled in her the patience and knowledge needed to train our incoming agents.
Ralph, just like Nora, has over 35 years of experience in the real estate business—first for himself and then as a real estate associate. He is an army veteran and a retired educator with nearly 31 years of service and cares for our youth.
As an educator, Ralph trained students in everything from industry certification, teamwork, and job interview to investing, money management, professionalism, and the ability to adapt to the ever-changing world. With this, he was able to help them meet the needs of the employment industries. Ralph is a people person, a team player, and a great team builder and motivator.
