Spokane Realtor, Patricia Linford, has a less than traditional path to her current career, but it has helped her become a better, more dedicated Haven Real Estate Agent in the long run. Many of our professional Realtors are thriving with us because of a major career change. Patricia is a textbook example of this process coming full circle for the benefit of her clients in Spokane. Let’s start at the beginning:
Patricia Linford was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada with her eight brothers and sisters. As an adult, she had children and started looking for a place to live that would be perfect to raise a family. She looked around and landed in beautiful Spokane. A small town city with a country feel and tight-knit community, Spokane quickly felt like home for her and her boys.
Growing up, Patricia had always felt strongly about helping others. She decided that this charitable spirit would make her a perfect fit in a nursing field, so she went to school to become an RN. As she soon found out, though, going to college as a single mom raising two kids and working in restaurants wasn’t easy. She realized that she wasn’t spending enough time with her family, so she quit her program and re-evaluated her career path.
She decided that she wanted a better work-life balance than nursing could offer, and when a friend introduced her to real estate, it seemed like fate. To have a rewarding career where she could help people find their dream homes while still having a flexible schedule and plenty of time to spend with her boys was a dream come true.
She had a ladder to climb in the industry, but Spokane Realtor Patricia Linford never backed down. Starting as a listing coordinator and becoming a licensed agent a few months later, she worked for about a year before deciding to set off on her own in a career as a real estate agent.
Patricia and the Haven Real Estate team found each other in a mutually beneficial situation. She wanted an established home for her clients, and Haven wanted a tireless worker who would always do right by everyone she worked with and for. Says Patricia “Nothing gives me greater joy than helping someone through their home buying process and seeing the excitement as they get the keys to their new home. Not to mention the relationships you build throughout.
