Earlier this year my life took a turn that I didn’t expect. My wife and I, along with other family members here in the US had to evacuate my parents from the Democratic Republic of The Congo due to safety reasons. The experience caused many other changes in both our personal and professional lives. I left my job at Inman News and returned to CENTURY 21 Redwood Realty because I felt as if the rug of my life was pulled right out from underneath me, and I needed to regain my balance. I am thankful that Redwood has been that constant in my life.
I have spent almost four years at Redwood - as an agent and staff member - working and pouring out my very best into everything. I have witnessed the tremendous growth of the company and the fact that it remained laser-focused on its mission to serve its agents and provide them with everything they would need to build a viable real estate business. I stood and celebrated our agents' successes. I have mourned with agents. I have been the beneficiary of more blessings through Redwood than I could count. And when my world felt like it was crashing down, CENTURY 21 Redwood Realty was there, once again, to see me through. This company gave me a shot at a better life for myself and my family. My gratitude, love, and respect for this brokerage will always endure.
It will come as a surprise to many, but I have decided to step down from my position at Redwood, for the simple reason that it is time for me to pursue a new growth opportunity for myself. Sometimes taking the time to pause, and assess your life and journey will lead you to ask some tough questions, and make some hard discoveries about yourself.
