Occupation: Pharmaceutical Sales Representative, Real Estate Agent; Ekk and Hamilton Realty
Quote from nomination:
“Dedra manages dual careers for more than 5 years (Sales Reps/ Real Estate). She loves to rehab homes on the weekend. She purchases foreclosures, fixed them up and turned them into successful rental homes. Often times, she is the only female/minority at the County Court House bidding on properties. Her favorite quote “Some people dream of great accomplishments, while others stay awake and do them,” is framed on her home office desk as a reminder of how hard work and dedication can lead to your ultimate goals. Dedra would love to share her accomplishments and happiness with someone special. And a family would make all her dreams come there!”
