Arrow Academy of Excellence


This may be a sound on moment 😂.

I went to Arrow Academy of Excellence!! I spoke to K-5 students about the weather & storm safety.

Usually the tornado in a bottle is Trevor Birchett ABC24’s thing. It’s harder than it looks lol BUT I nailed it and the crowd went wild, unprovoked too 😂😂.
We’re Closed!!

4 closings in two days and 3 Monday!!

I’m so thankful for the opportunity to serve my community.

Thanks to all of my clients for entrusting me to help them secure their dream home.

And thanks to Arrow Academy of Excellence for thinking enough of me to invite me to speak to their children on Career Day!

Thanks to my realtor partners for making this possible!! Preferred Title & Escrow, LLC, Guardian Title, LLC & Grant & Sain, Attorneys at Law…
