Q. One unique thing about you someone wouldn't learn until they got you know you.
Wemmy: I used to be a Flight Attendant.
Q. Where would you build your dream home, and why?
Wemmy: Oh San Diego. I love the ocean, weather and people. I actually have my house picked out in La Jolla already. Just waiting on my husband to win the lottery so he can buy it for me.
Kim: Miami Beach. I'm a beach girl at heart. Believe it or not I grew up just a few blocks from the beach in New York. Miami's weather is a lot more conducive to beach living.

Wemmy: 8 years and counting
Kim: Since 2007
Q. How did you get your start in Real Estate?
Wemmy: The airline I worked for went bankrupt. That would do it
Kim: I sold a condo I owned without the use of a realtor at the age of 22. Real estate came very natural to me so figured I'd try my at real estate as a career.
Q. What do you enjoy most about the real estate business?
Wemmy: I call myself a "home matchmaker". I love matching my clients with the right home or investors the right deal. Some of them actually cry when I make that magic happen. Ofcourse I love meeting new people as well. Most of my clients end up becoming friends.
Kim: I love meeting new people from all over the world. I have a lot of international clients and have been invited to India, South Africa, Austria and Mexico.
Q. Why Assist2Sell?
Wemmy: I really liked the model
Kim: I feel flat fees are the future and want to be ahead of the curve. Assist-2-Sell has an attractive model that I feel will work well in my market. I also was impressed with the support the franchise offers.
Q. What area are you opening your office in?
Q. The value piece of real estate advise you received?
Wemmy: Pay your taxes!
Kim: A client once told me "A good deal is a deal that is fair to both parties." This has helped me become a less rigid negotiator.
