Say hello to Yanina Reinoso who joined the Mountain Realty Group team January 22, 2020. Yanina tells us a bit about herself as we interview her about her background and her life and loves!
Did you grow up in the Smokies? If not, where are you from?
I was born in South Argentina. I moved to the USA when I was 12 years old. We originally moved to Miami, Florida. My family used to vacation here in the Smokies every year because it was similar to the landscape and weather where we grew up in Argentina. Then, four years ago my parents decided to move to the area, and after discussing with my husband, we decided to move to this area as well.
What drew you to wanting to work as a Real Estate Agent in the Smokies, focusing on the valley area with Mountain Realty Group?
The Mountain Realty Group team is a wonderful group. One of the steps in the hiring process was getting in touch with all the agents in the office for approval. I learned they are all close to each other and they feel like they are one big family and I am so excited to now be part of that family.
Have you had previous careers?
I am currently an ESL teacher for Sevier County High School.
Do you have a good short story you could tell us about living in the Smokies, or working in Real Estate?
I just got my license so I am very new to this career. I do love hiking the Smoky Mountains.
What is your advice to someone who may be thinking or moving to the Smokies or maybe having a second home here?
Well, I have convinced two of my friends already to move to this location from Miami and to buy homes instead of renting! I love the inner peace you get from waking up in the morning and be able to hear the birds and smell nature.
I live up in a mountain in Pigeon Forge and I love waking up on weekends and drinking my coffee on my deck, looking at the mountains, even when it is freezing cold and I need 3-4 jackets! Although school keeps me busy throughout the week, I never miss or tire of the Smoky Mountain sunrise and sunset.
