5 Reasons to Own a Home
Welcome to My DFW Home
Hello! Is a pleasure that you are here. Let me introduce myself so you know a little bit of me and how I got where I am. I am starting this new stage in my life and I am really happy that you are part of it. My name is Marilyn, I come from Puerto Rico and arrived in Texas in Autumn 2015, searching for better opportunities along with my family.
Born in Carolina, Puerto Rico and raised in Loiza, Puerto Rico, I come from a small but close family. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Forensic Psychology from the University of Puerto Rico. After I graduated in 2015 I had to take the hard decision to relocate to United States, looking for me and my son’s well-being. It wasn’t an easy decision, and the first few months here in Texas were really hard. A lot of times I wanted to go back, but eventually decided to stay. Starting all over with no family or friends is one of the hardest things to do.
My arrival in Texas
I initially decided to live in Dallas. I stayed there for a couple of months while I settled and found a job. Eventually decided to move to North Richland Hills, because I felt it was the better option for my family at the moment. In October 2017, my life changed. My mother got sick in Puerto Rico, and needed my help. I had to bring her to Texas with me, so almost all of my family is close to me now. Due to her illness, I needed to take action. I needed to find a bigger place to live, so decided the moment to buy a house was then. You can read about my home-buying process here.
In my free time I enjoy watching Netflix, cooking or playing board games with my son. I love to try different food places, and I am lucky that I have my sidekick -my son- to go with me. I also love to study and everything that helps me be a better person and professional. Also I enjoy making soaps and some beauty products in my spare time, and learning about natural remedies.
How I became a Real Estate Agent
I would have never imagined I was going to become a Real Estate Agent. When I arrived in Texas, my intention was to develop my Forensic Psychology career and eventually obtain my Master’s Degree. I found this career, almost as a coincidence, but since I always liked to help others, decided to give it a try, not knowing I was going to become passionate about it. I have a vast experience in Customer Service, which helps me now to understand how to do better.
One of the reasons that made me decide to become a REALTOR®, is because I understood there’s more than 1 way to help, and a lot of people have the same questions and doubts when they are trying to decide the next step for their family. Sometimes they just need someone that listens and understands their needs, or just encouragement when they don’t know if they are making the right decision.
I selected Lilly Garcia Realtors as my brokerage, because is a small company that genuinely lives up to their values. My broker Lilly Garcia really enjoys helping people as much as I do, so I feel that’s what really matters.
