Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
The Ferguson Group is a property management company specializing in the greater Placer County area. We work with a multitude of people – from real estate investors who own several income properties to homeowners who have decided to rent their primary homes for a variety of different reasons. I developed an interest in real estate years ago and became licensed with the intent to help people buy and sell homes. The property management part came later; I guess you could call it a happy accident. We enjoy our work and never have a dull moment.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
Our number one accomplishment is our amazing daughter Madelyn. Beyond that, my husband and I both put ourselves through college and while it was very challenging at times and we are still paying off the student loans, having our degrees is something we’re both very proud of.
Where do you go when the going gets tough?
We have always loved going to Lake Tahoe. One of the best reasons to live in this area is the proximity to one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever seen, and now we get to take our daughter with us.
What’s your biggest job perk?
The flexibility of our schedule – we don’t have to ask our boss if we need to go to a doctor’s appointment or run an errand. Of course, it’s also the biggest drawback. We often work seven days a week, and it’s not uncommon for us to get home in the evening and then head back out for late showings of rental properties.
And finally, customer service is…?
It’s as simple as treating everyone you meet as you’d like to be treated. Doing the routine things, such as returning phone calls in a timely manner or showing up on time for appointments, are the little things that people really appreciate.
