About Lois Hancock

It’s been said that all our experiences, good or bad, are learning experiences leading us to where we are meant to go.  In reflection I find that to be true in my case.

I had always wanted to travel and after graduating from high school I went to Europe.  After many unexpected adventures I found myself in Britain studying at Southampton University, Teacher’s College.  From there teaching middle school in London.  This is where I realized I really LOVE helping people, young or old, learn new and exciting things.

After 15 years, and many more adventures, I returned home and took a good job that I really liked, BUT American businesses aren’t keen on you taking a month (or two) off to travel!  I Realized I couldn’t keep quitting jobs to travel.  I decided to get training and opened my own travel business selling trips to Africa and international golf trips.  I LOVE helping people realize their dream whether an African safari or playing golf at St. Andrews Old Course and much more.  And guess what, I HAD to travel with my job!  But seriously I also realized, I am a detail-orientated person who enjoys the nuts and bolts required to be sure everyone had the time of their life.  I enjoyed the satisfaction of a job well done!  Then came 911 and the travel industry turned upside down.  I haven't abandoned travel but ..

Through happenstance, I looked into real estate and decided this is would be a great new adventure.  But, as luck would have it, I entered just as the world’s economy turned upside down and real estate suffered greatly.  Fortunately, it was a good time to buckle down and learn as much as I could about this industry.  I realized I LOVE helping people find and buy a new home, I LOVE helping people sell and move on to greener pastures.

So, for me the experiences I have had with people, teaching them the ins and outs of buying or selling a home.  The attention to detail to be sure everything goes smoothly.  The knowledge I continuously am gaining as our world never ceases to change.  If I put this all together -- my reward?  The pleasure I get when handing a happy client keys to their new home or enabling them to move on to another.

So, for me everything, good or bad in the past or currently lets me say --- I’m still here and ready to help you!
