Lisa Thomas | Owner of LPT Group
, We asked Lisa to share FIVE fun facts in order to get to KNOW her better:
She has an International Real Estate License from the National Association of Realtors of which there are only three thousand people who hold that certification in the WORLD.
Due to having an International Real Estate license, she can assist clients in finding properties all over the world… In addition, she holds an “affiliate realtor” certification in five countries in Central America.
Her family makes a line of Gourmet Cooking and/or “Specialty” sauces, such as a BBQ sauce, steak marinade, etc… distributed in Specialty Food Stores, which have pictures of both of her grandparents on the labels.
She lived in Palm Springs for a while, where she participated in “Celebrity Grand Openings” for several Resort Hotels, as well as Resort Golf Courses… and has lots of funny stories about some of the celebrities she met during that time.
She has ridden an elephant…. and also swam with sharks and stingrays in Belize. It was both terrifying as well as exhilarating… all at the same time.
