Chiquita Lemus | Pro 100 Real Estate Agent | Joplin MO


Unlike most real estate agents, my interest in the field started when I was younger.  I first wanted to be an architect; I loved to draw and thought I was somewhat good but soon realized I might not be as creative as I thought for that field.  I also loved technology and took quickly to computers.  In college I decided to major in Information Technology (IT) hoping to earn a minor in real estate, but the two fields did not match well together (at that time).  I went on to earn both a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Information Technology, never getting the minor in real estate.

Fast forward several years later to 2014 when my family found ourselves relocating to Joplin for my husband’s job.  After a few hiccups with my IT job (being laid off and commuting over an hour to work) I decided to move forward with getting my real estate license and fulfill a career path that had been put off for too long.
