My name is Josephine, I'm a cradle Catholic of Hispanic and Native American desent, but I'm often mistaken for Greek or Italian. I have one child, who is 20, and I'm marrierd tp the same man going on 25 years. Im a Certified Catechist through the Archdiocese of Chicago. I've been a Religion Teacher for 14 years, and I enjoy it. I enjoy reading, walking and seeing God's handy work, music, being with family and friends, a good laugh, among other things. I'm also a certified Reiki Master.
My professional background is in Real Estate. I am a Licensed Realtor in the state of Illinois. I've been involved in the Real Estate world since my junior year in high school through the work program at Chicago Title & Trust. I enjoy working with people helping them find their dream home. In today's economy that's not too difficult to do as there are alot of properties to choose from. The challenge is in the financial apsect. Can one qualify for the loan? Will their job be out-sourced to another location/country? Will their company go belly up? Will our next President truly help our country get better financially? These and other quesitons are a constant worry for Buyers, Sellers, people in the lending end of deals and yes, me and may other Realtors across the country, not to mention everyone else.
I pray that we as a nation are guided by our Creator to choose the best candidate to help these United States of America and it's people move forward and be in a better financial situation that we've been in these past years. I pray that we can put these past years as a learning experience not only for the common man, but for our politicans as well. A learnaing experience that we NOT get into a situation as we've had again.
We are all made in our Creator's image. A we need to realize that our Creator has many different images, skin color, ideas, and traditions. As I'm always saying to my students - "Find the similarities iwith everyone you meet and compare the differences. Ask questons and explain why there are some difference. Celebrate the similarities and realize that no one is better than the other."
