A former active duty Marine, I take extreme pride in bringing our core values from the USMC into my real estate practice every day. If you ever want to understand how a Marine thinks and acts, the 3 most important words are Honor, Courage, and Commitment. How that translates to business is this: The most important part of Honor is living by an uncompromising code of Integrity. Courage speaks to mental and moral strength to do what is right. Commitment to excellence and mastery of our craft, and profession.
