Vicksburg resident Lucy Derrossette is the newest member of the Vicksburg-Warren County Board of Realtors.
Derrossette, who has worked for the Vicksburg-Warren School District for the past 30 years as a teacher and at the central office as the Director of Innovation, is ready to start her new side job of helping individuals find a home.
“I am super excited because interest rates are so low that people can get houses for a lot less and loans will be available for them,” Derrossette said.
The Board of Realtors members are all certified and licensed to sell homes. For someone to become a realtor, they must pass a state and national exam.
Derrossette began taking classes in June while the COVID-19 pandemic was interrupting her job at the school district when everyone, including students, was sent home, so she was able to finish three months later. This is her second time to become a realtor; she first started 20 years ago.
Derrossette always had a passion for houses so being a realtor with Keller-Williams is a calling and not just a job.
“I always loved houses and people,” Derrossette said. “I think it is a great investment for anyone, especially teachers because they can get special loans up to $6,000 for teaching in the Vicksburg area for three years without having to pay the money back.”
Derrossette will continue working for the Vicksburg-Warren School District while also working as a realtor. She will be doing two things that she loves: selling houses and helping children.
