SONOMA INDEX-TRIBUNE -- “I’ve always enjoyed helping people so I thought between helping people find and sell their house and then working with beautiful homes, it was kind of the perfect match for me,” said Woebcke.
Despite this realization and the determination that followed, Woebcke was discouraged by a high school teacher. He was told he was too young to pursue real estate right after high school, so when he graduated in 1998, he headed to San Francisco State University to pursue a degree in speech communications, and became the first person in his family to graduate from college. He then used his degree to go into banking and finance. While this wasn’t exactly what he wanted to do, looking back, he sees how his experiences post-college contributed to his current career and his drive to pursue his real estate goals.
