15 Mar Windermere Homes & Estates Welcomes Deanna Louise Walls
As a native SoCal resident, Deanna grew up in Escondido and enjoyed all the beautiful weather had to offer. From summers in the swimming pool to neighborhood basketball, soccer and softball, to say Deanna had a competitive edge would be an understatement!
Having early aspirations to excel in everything she did, Deanna used her endless energy to run and play sports as often as she could. Her unique passion has allowed her to trump most competitors she faced – even the guys.
Although Deanna attained her Masters in Elementary Education, she decided that her love for raising a family would exceed all, making her a stay at home mom having children only 19 months apart. She later went back to be a substitute teacher with every intention of going back to teaching full time.
After several months Deanna realized that her mother, Sandi Hadley, who had been a top producing North San Diego Real Estate agent for over 26 years, was going to retire. At that point, Deanna decided it was time to learn the business from a master mentor while she still had the chance.
Deanna fell in love with Real Estate, loving every minute of this new career. “It was the perfect change for me and I am so thankful that I got to be mentored by my mother before her unfortunate death this last November. I started in Oct. of 2015 and I feel so lucky to have grasped this wonderful opportunity to help homeowners with something so important and special in their lives. Thank you mom for everything you taught me.”
Deanna’s team, The Hadley Home Team went #1 Nationwide in 2016 for sales. In 2017, Deanna was Top 10 Nationwide for March, April and Oct. Deanna decided that with this momentum, she would begin her own Hadley Home Team and hope to follow in the footsteps of her inspiring mother, upholding her amazing reputation.
Now working out of Windermere’s Carlsbad Village office, Deanna gets to do what she loves right in her hometown.
“Deanna’s story is inspirational. To have achieved so much in so little time shows what a quick mind she has. The opportunity to learn from the best was a gift, and Deanna does her mother proud. That she’s chosen our Carlsbad Village office? That’s our own good fortune,” says Brian Gooding, co-owner of Windermere Homes & Estates.
