Real Estate Broker and Owner of Pepine Realty
Real estate has not always been a part of Betsy’s life. After being educated in business at Duke University and receiving her MBA in marketing from The Wharton School of Business, Betsy worked in pharmaceutical marketing. However, she said, “I’ve always had an interest in real estate…[and] the impact housing can have on a family.” In order to pursue a job in real estate, Betsy had to overcome the stigma that she would be “stepping down” in her career. Convincing her family that she was making the right choice was a challenge. Now, Betsy owns Pepine Realty, where is able to incorporate her passion for real estate alongside her passion for volunteer work. “I have always been an active volunteer in every community I’ve been a part of,” Pepine said. Pepine Realty organized at least one service project a month based on the interest of her staff. Betsy also believes its important to have mentors in your professional, spiritual and financial life. She said it is crucial to “pick out role models you are willing to emulate.”
