Small Business Partner - Golden Rule Real Estate

April Strickland of Golden Rule Real Estate

1.        Tell us about your business; and what is your business philosophy?

At Golden Rule Real Estate, we are all about bringing back old school customer service and caring and at the same time we are determined to give customers another option for their property management and real estate needs, a different option than the industry norms. 

2.         Why are you passionate about your commitment to United Way’s Community Investment Fund?

In keeping with the "Golden Rule" we want to help others as we hope we would be helped if we needed it. We love that it stays locally and really helps those that need it. 

3.         What is something interesting or surprising that most people don’t know about you?

I took 4 years of American Sign Language and have now adopted a deaf dog and we are teaching her sign language. 

4.         What would your older self tell your younger self?

To trust in the path, you need both the ups and downs in life to get where you need to be.
