Mothers’ Day is coming up, so we wanted to check in with some of our Sibcy Cline moms to find out how motherhood and real estate fit together in their lives. What kind of flexibility does a career in real estate offer and does it allow them to be the moms they want to be? Here’s what they had to say.
Maura Black, Sibcy Cline Western Hills
There’s no question that this kind of work allows you significantly more flexibility than some other career paths. This year I have a kindergartner and I block off one morning a month where I help in the classroom. It’s an “appointment” I wouldn’t miss for the world!
I can’t remember a time when real estate was not a part of my family’s life. I grew up in a family that owned a construction company. Our weekends consisted of car rides and visiting dad’s job sites to check on them. As I got older, I helped courier blueprints across town for allowance money! Being around that taught me that it was good family time and that there was a way I could integrate my family life into my work. I watched people make big deals and that kind of risk-taking was normalized for me.
There’s no question that this kind of work allows you significantly more flexibility than some other career paths. This year I have a kindergartner and I block off one morning a month where I help in their classroom. It’s an “appointment “ I wouldn’t miss for the world! Also, I’m very active on the PTA and I’m so glad I can help the school, AND it has also led to some work-related opportunities for me. Doing good is good for business, too! I also think it’s good for my boys to see that I work hard and observe how to present yourself professionally with clients.
Sherry Powell, Sibcy Cline Fairfield
Real Estate has helped me to be the mother that I want to be because I want my children, especially my daughter, to know that women can have it ALL, family and career. It allows me to show my children that whatever you put your mind to and work hard to accomplish, it can be done!
The opportunity to work around my family life was definitely part of my decision to pursue real estate. My family is everything to me and it is so important for me to be a parent that is PRESENT. I am intentional about building memories with my family. I have three sisters and I am blessed to have both of my parents around so we usually get together to celebrate, especially Sunday dinners at my parents’ house after church. My church family is important to me as well! Real Estate allows me the flexibility to be present at milestones and family events.
Real Estate has helped me to be the mother that I want to be because I want my children, especially my daughter, to know that women can have it ALL, family and career. It allows me to show my children that whatever you put your mind to and work hard to accomplish, it can be done! Real Estate doesn’t feel like work to me because I love helping others pursue their dreams. It is important to live not a balanced life, but a life of harmony where career and personal life don’t compete. I think Mary Kay Ash said it best: “The real success of our personal lives and careers can best be measured by the relationships we have with the people most dear to us — our family, friends, and coworkers. If we fail in this aspect of our lives, no matter how vast our worldly possessions or how high on the corporate ladder we climb, we will have achieved very little.”
Tiffany Allen-Zeuch, Sibcy Cline West Chester
Being my own boss and running a business shows my daughters that girl bosses rock and you can achieve anything if you put in the work.
I obtained my real estate license prior to being married, so I definitely didn’t get into real estate to accommodate my family life. Later I got married and then had two daughters, so I learned how to be flexible and become better at time management once adding kids into the mix with this career.
Being a real estate agent has allowed me many opportunities to be the best mom as possible. Having a flexible schedule has allowed me to go to important events at school. As my kids have gotten older, it has allowed me the flexibility to travel for sporting events. My flexible schedule also allows me to drive my kids to and from school, which is awesome one-on-one time with my kids during the day. Being my own boss and running a business shows my daughters that girl bosses rock and you can achieve anything if you put in the work.
Lauren Ashley Scallon, Sibcy Cline Kenwood
Do I miss meals occasionally? Yes. Have my children learned that I’m not always available? Yes. Do I have to bring home ice cream after late showings? Absolutely.
The opportunity to build my career around my family life was a big part of my decision to pursue real estate, but balance is a “choose your own adventure” in this career. I’m learning to use “no” as a complete sentence. If I can’t, I can’t, and I will refer someone who can. Time is valuable and I have had to reset a few times. Sometimes ambition and family life struggle for middle earth, but my children have agreed to let me represent them in future real estate transactions. So, you could say I’m farming leads from within my own home.
Working in real estate gives me the opportunity to take on something outside of motherhood. It allows me to use my creativity and negotiating skills for things above and beyond finding ways to get a toddler to put on shoes. Do I miss meals occasionally? Yes. Have my children learned that I’m not always available? Yes. Do I have to bring home ice cream after late showings? Absolutely.
Annie Rusche, Sibcy Cline Hyde Park
Real estate has made me a more patient and positive mom. Closing a deal requires patience and problem-solving, just like getting an infant to sleep through the night or teaching a toddler to eat with a fork.
A lot of the skills that come with being a mom of infant twins and a two-year-old are important to the success of my real estate career: patience, multitasking, answering questions and concerns, communication, and more. Being a real estate agent isn’t just touring pretty houses and writing effortless contracts. It takes a lot of hard work to get from A-Z and you have to continue to help keep your clients positive when you hit bumps in the road. The same goes for raising kids!
Real estate has made me a more patient and positive mom. Closing a deal requires patience and problem-solving, just like getting an infant to sleep through the night or teaching a toddler to eat with a fork. As a mom, I hope to always be a teacher and caregiver for my kids and working as a real estate agent enhances those skills.
Being a real estate agent allows me to work and spend as much time with my kids as possible. I don’t have to miss all those special moments because I’m at an office or work a typical work schedule. I get to help clients make one of the most important purchases of their lifetime and attend that important holiday-themed gym class all on the same day. Life is so good as a REALTOR® Mom!
Jessica Frazier, Sibcy Cline Western Hills
This is a lucrative career that allows me to make memories with my daughter, properly care for her when she’s sick, and pay attention to her wants, needs and desires. I can do all of this without the stress and anxiety of losing my career because I’m taking care of my family.
My decision to pursue real estate was absolutely about the opportunity to work around my daughter. This is a lucrative career that allows me to make memories with my daughter, properly care for her when she’s sick, and pay attention to her wants, needs and desires. I can do all of this without the stress and anxiety of losing my career because I’m taking care of my family.
As a single parent, any career choice can be quite challenging. However, becoming a realtor has allowed me to be the best mom because I run the show! This career option allows me to make an impact on the community, help others realize their dream of home ownership, volunteer for school activities, and be home to cook meals and spend quality time with my daughter. I can attend her performances and pickup/dropoff to school everyday, all while doing what I love! In this tough market, it’s easy to lose sight of time and get too busy. so setting boundaries is extremely important to being the best mom and keeping a healthy work-life balance.
Regina Hamilton, Sibcy Cline Harrison
We had to put a lot of time and dedication into our business while our children were young and unfortunately, that meant missing out on sports events and other moments. While it was hard, there were many parts of life that were a complete blessing. Our children saw us work hard for our family and were taught at a very young age nothing comes without hard work.
I first started real estate to make extra income. After about 3 years, my husband Gary’s company closed and he started helping me. The dynamic worked and we never looked back. We are an extremely tight-knit family and have been able to balance work and family life.
Working in real estate has presented it challenges. We had to put a lot of time and dedication into our business while our children were young and unfortunately, that meant missing out on sports events and other moments. While it was hard, there were many parts of life that were a complete blessing. Our children saw us work hard for our family and were taught at a very young age nothing comes without hard work. While our oldest two children pursued other careers, our youngest son Jesse is now part of Team Hamilton as a real estate agent. Building a family business that one of our children can be a part of has been worth all the hard work and dedication!
Stacy Rickert, Sibcy Cline Montgomery
I can volunteer at school, attend their events and functions while creating a real estate network within mom life. My kids are a part of my business and my business includes my kids. I wouldn’t want it any other way!
I started in real estate before I had kids, but a family was definitely on my mind. I had no idea at the time what an important role this career choice would play as a busy mom.
A career in real estate has allowed me to be the mother I want to be by being able to be present and involved in my kids activities and day to day life. I can volunteer at school, attend their events and functions while creating a real estate network within mom life. My kids are a part of my business and my business includes my kids. I wouldn’t want it any other way!
Libby Paulinelli, Sibcy Cline Montgomery
Being a real estate agent allows me to be the Mom I want to be in many ways. It is so important to me to be present every minute I get with Daniel.
Even though I started real estate before I became a mother, the flexibility to work around family life was a big deciding factor. My mom always said it worked well for her when we were little, and now that I’m able to experience it firsthand, I’m SO glad I did.
Being a real estate agent allows me to be the Mom I want to be in many ways. It is so important to me to be present every minute I get with Daniel. It took a few months to figure out with an unpredictable schedule, but we’ve created what works best for us. He even enjoys coming to showings with me sometimes!
Kas Winkler, Sibcy Cline Northeast
As a single mom my job allows me the flexibility I need in the daily grind. I also know with the right mindset and consistency that the possibilities are endless.
Having made a lot of life changes in the past few years this one seemed to be one of the next chapters of my book. As a single mom, my job allows me the flexibility I need in the daily grind. I also know with the right mindset and consistency that the possibilities are endless. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
Making the change to become a real estate agent was something I worked hard to achieve. I think my daughter can see how hard I work at my job but also how much I love it.

When is it time for ice cream? Anytime! Spring, however, is known as the start of “soft-serve ice cream season”. Many small-business ice cream shops are re-opening their doors at this time to sell their tasty treats. Most call them “creamy whip”, “whippy dip” or “dairy whip” and that just means it’s soft-serve style ice cream swirled into a cone or cup.
Be sure to try a local creamy whip or two this spring and summer. Add a chocolate dip top, sprinkles, flavored syrup, flavor bursts – or enjoy a simple cone.
