Kathryn SmithI joined National Agents Alliance head, heart, body and soul after the Raleigh Convention in January of 2011. After 25 years as a six figure income Realtor in Phoenix, Arizona,  in 2006 as the financial markets sputtered and crashed so did my beloved real estate career. That was just the beginning of my Job experience as the losses mounted  within that following year including a marriage, home, car, and retirement through theft. The IRS then showed up on my door  after my then husband had failed to pay taxes. I am happy to report that it took some time but I resolved that issue with IRS satisfactorily. However,  the worst was yet to come. My son, Robert, had been a naval pilot and then U.S. Customs pilot involved in fighting the drug wars and cartel in Mexico.  He was in pursuit of illegal drug activity on the El Paso/Juarez border when his chopper was brought down and we buried him on Memorial Day of 2008. Finding the will to live after that took some effort but with my faith in God and His strength I did. The three years after that though were just survival mode. I kept searching for a new career opportunity and path when I saw a Craigslist ad which I thankfully responded to and met Chad and Melanie Ray. That was the NAA opportunity this year. After the convention I literally floated home thanking God for having brought to me what I believe to be the greatest business opportunity and leadership offered in the country today.

I am so blessed to have been given not only a second chance at my life because of Andy Albright and National Agents Alliance but it is also with a new vision of really making a difference in someone else’s life. I know the pain of that unexpected life changing phone call and to know that at least I can prevent a second tragedy of financial loss gives me a new passion,  motivation and reason to live again. I thank God everyday for the NAA people that have poured themselves into my life. And especially I can’t thank Andy enough!  I am a better person for having this new association with the best of the best, NAA.
