Secretary: Patricia Ayling

Patricia Ayling has been in sales and sales management for over 20 years and has sold a variety of different products or services that she has been extremely passionate about, one of those being computer training. What a rush to sell a service so desperately needed just as PCs became mainstream! But in 2003 she found her true niche and began selling real estate. Originally part of the Pete Reeser Team at Keller Williams Edmond, she eventually moved to the Keller Williams Northwest office to be more centrally located.
