As an Instructor, I have a passion for inspiring others to excel, and a teaching style that creates positive energy in the classroom. I believe that education + preparation = readiness for success. The topics I teach include required continuing education classes, the 60 hours pre-licensing classes for salesperson, the 135 hours pre-licensing classes for brokers, seminars for Professional Development and Designation, as well as teaching NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). I can make difficult topics easy to understand as I break down the material into smaller components and relate the subject to real life experiences that is relevant and current for my students to comprehend.
I earned a B.S. from the University of Maryland at College Park in Human Resource Management with a double major in Transportation and Logistics. I pursued my studies; in 1999 I received a Master of Divinity and in 2005 a Doctorate in Ministry from the Howard University School of Divinity. In 2010, I earned a Master of Arts in Pastoral Counseling from Loyola University. I am a graduate of Leadership Academy from Maryland REALTORS. I am also the president and founder of Nani House, a non-profit that helps the homeless, poor, elderly and children with the basic needs in life. If that isn’t enough, I am also a licensed therapist and ordained pastor. The states I am licensed in include MD, DC, VA, DEL, NC, and FL. I also serve on several committees on the local and state level.
I am a native of Georgetown, Guyana and have lived in the Washington, DC area since age ten. In June 1985, I received my real estate license and shortly after became a broker with countless designations. In 2014, I was inspired by the saying, “She believed she could, so she did,” and opened my own boutique real estate company, Living In Style Real Estate. In 2016, I “believed” again and opened a real estate school, Reed Training Center. I started my career in real estate in my early 20’s when my sister was looking for a 4-unit building in DC. Through that process I found out I could make money doing something I love!
