Ms. Desiree is the owner and principal decorator here at EIGHT18 Studio, currently living in Charlotte, North Carolina. She is also a NC REALTOR at Coldwell Banker.
Ms. Desiree started her real estate career officially as a temp worker in May 2013. 3 months later, she became a sales associate with a Builder and in less than 90 days was promoted to a New Home Sales Counselor in Nov. 2013. In an otherwise slow time for the industry, Ms. Desiree sold 4 homes in the remaining half of November and finished off the year with another 8, totaling 12. This set up the momentum for an unexpected prosperous new year.
That next year (2014), Ms. Desiree sold 60 homes, won Top Sales 8 out of 12 months and ended the year with 42 closings. The following year, she won Rookie Sales Professional of the Year.
Unfortunately, a knee injury slowed down her pace and she only sold 39 homes by the end of the year. During this slow period, real estate colleagues began to ask her for different decorating and design suggestions, as they knew she had an eye for interiors. As a result, Ms. Desiree decided to combine both her passion for helping people and love for decorating and designing to form the hybrid that we know today as Eight18 Studio!
