Navigating a career change can be a daunting leap of faith for most. But when the decision comes from a place of both passion and purpose, it starts to look and feel more like an evolution than a change. A little more than a year ago, Jaime Bach made the decision to build upon her Business Management degree and more than 20 years of professional experience — most recently in the planning and zoning department for the City of Mount Dora — and become a Lake County-based Realtor®. Raising two children in the community and her knowledge of the amenities that make Lake so special has paid off, having achieved a sold/pending volume of nearly $8.5 million in her first full year. Her strategic relationship with Kevco Builders, serving as the exclusive listing agent for Lake County’s #1 custom home builder, as well as her “Luxury Homes” Certification, provide additional value to her customers, particularly those who need the unique assistance both selling their existing home and building their custom dream home.
Like any good business woman who starts up a professional endeavor, there are lessons to be learned. Jaime bet that buyers and sellers would be drawn to her personal commitment and attention, knowing that it will always be her name, face and reputation that serves as the foundation for all of her real estate and community relationships.
