Hello! I am Tina Lester, proud wife of a retired Army Master Diver, mother of two beautiful children, Alexis and Isaiah, and a fur baby named Lucy.
After 20 years working in ophthalmology, real estate was introduced to me by Shannon French. I hadn’t given it much thought, however, was always intrigued by the field. Something about helping people find a place to call “home” just seemed so rewarding to me.
After talking with Shannon about it over coffee, I signed up for real estate school the next day and have been hooked on it ever since. After completing real estate school, I completed the courses that I needed to become a certified home stager and redesigner. I wanted to offer an incentive for using me as their realtor, so I offer free home staging to all of my listing clients.
I will admit that there is a lot of work and a lot of hours that go into working in this field, but I love every second of it. Even during those times when things don’t necessarily go your way, I use those moments to help me grow and become an even better Realtor. I am a blessed individual and I give thanks to God every day for being able to do what I love to do and to be around such wonderful people as I am at Southern Trade Realty.
