When talking about David, Yadira said: “He means the world to me, and encourages and supports all I do, no matter what. I am extremely blessed to have the family that I have!”

Yadira was asked a few personal, and fun questions. Below are her responses.

What made you want to be a REALTOR? 

My good friend Dory thought it would be a good idea, and suggested it to me! My favorite thing about being a Realtor is when I show homes…especially when they are not in well condition.   I can see the possibilities from the moment I walk in. I see what CAN be beautiful.  My parents taught me this as we restored homes throughout my early years, and they showed me how to envision what could be rather than picture only what my physical eyes could see.   

 What would you say is your passion? 

My passion is to make DREAMS come true. 

What do you enjoy doing when you are not selling Real Estate? 

 I enjoy spending time with my family the most.  I also like creating things, gardening, teaching and speaking Spanish!

What is your favorite movie or TV show?

Korean Dramas are my favorite.

Do you have any hobbies? 

I enjoy using my Silhouette to make “stuff” and I enjoy working on “projects”…  Any kind of project.  I make cakes and piñatas for my kids birthdays. I like to paint on walls, canvas, rocks, frames, or anything you can imagine…even sticks!  All in all there is never a dull moment in my life, and art makes me happy.

Why did you choose to be part of Homes for Heroes? 

Why not?…I am a daughter of a Hero, married a Hero, and I am a Hero myself!
