For approximately 15 years, I worked (part time) in real estate with Coldwell Banker, The Hatcher Agency, and WilPro, Inc. I was a multi-million dollar real estate producer and held real estate licenses in Florida and Alabama. In 2008, I became a notary public. This designation allows me to notarize wills, real estate transactions, health documents, and perform marriage ceremonies. To sum it up, no regrets and no complaints! It's been a good ride so far.
