In 1993, Vinda got her real estate license. One morning she was sitting at the dining room table when her husband, Larry, walked in. He took one look at her and said, “Gee, you’re deep in thought. What are you thinking about?” She explained that they had come across some really good Realtors and they’d come across some she felt were really bad. What kind of a Realtor was she going to make? He asked her what she liked about the good ones. She had quite a list of things. They followed up; they told her the truth whether it was what she wanted to hear or not; they were willing to go the extra mile; they weren’t afraid to say they didn’t know but they would find out and the list went on. He then asked what she didn’t like about some Realtors and she had quite a list there also. When finished, he said, “Well, it sounds to me as though you’ve answered your question.” To this day, when there is a question about how to go about something or what should be done, Vinda goes back to that discussion. What would she want a Realtor to do if it was her? It’s never let her down.
Vinda had been a court reporter for 25 years. She came across lots of real estate cases. Every single one had something in common – the people were unhappy, hurt, disillusioned, or had some kind of complaint. There wasn’t one transaction that had gone smoothly. Listening to these court cases, Vinda saw some similar themes. Someone had let the ball down somewhere along the line – they hadn’t disclosed something or they hadn’t done their due diligence or they hadn’t followed up on something. Bottom line, most real estate cases just didn’t need to turn out as a negative experience.
Vinda felt that buying and selling real estate should create positive results in people’s finances and/or lifestyles or both. For this to happen there were two requirements. First you had to have the facts and know what they meant. Secondly, you had to have a good team of experts to guide you on market trends, availability and potential outcomes.
Now as a Realtor for many years, Vinda’s mission is to help people make the best possible decisions for themselves and their families.
