Going Through Flatiron School

My First Attempt at Artificial Intelligence

Ok, its Tic Tac Toe - calm down, but it sure is fun to talk like that. :)

My path to programming . . .

For the past 5 years, I have been building my real estate business. The majority of my business is working as a licensed real estate agent, representing buyers and sellers in their home purchases and sales. I also have begun flipping properties. I initially got into real estate at the suggestion of my father-in-law and had decent success right away. Most things have come pretty easy to me, and this seemed to be no exception. A couple years in, I was definitely questioning whether or not I was in the right profession. I do thoroughly enjoy helping people find their home, because it is such a big moment in most people’s lives, and I consider it an honor to be a part of that process. The problem with real estate for me is the lack of mental challenge and stimulation. The majority of my work is calling or emailing the appropriate parties to handle tasks relevant to my transactions. There are occasions where I get to do some problem solving, such as finding ways out of severely financially distressed properties for my clients, however even these cases are more just about grunt work than they are about problem-solving. I also flip properties, which I do enjoy, especially the design aspect. Reconfiguring room spaces and choosing finishing materials is something a lot of people enjoy (hence why HGTV design shows are so popular).
