I Love My Community: Luisa Renwick

By  0 Comments

Luisa Renwick, a real estate agent in the greater Stockton area, sat down with HERLIFE Magazine recently to share her dedication to family and community.

HLM: How long have you lived here? What do you love most?
LR: I’m from beautiful Oaxaca, Mexico, but I have lived in Stockton for 31 years. I love so many things about Stockton; the one thing that stands out is the diversity of people, including the different cultures, religions and backgrounds. After 31 years here, I still learn new things about the people and always seem to find new friends. Stockton has been my home since I came to the United States and of course I love everything it has to offer from the gorgeous Delta to the beautiful Lincoln Shopping Center. This city never bores me and I have adopted it as my home town.

HLM: How is your heart inspired to serve the community?
LR: I am inspired to help motivate and educate young women looking for guidance on a path to success and happiness. Everyone has their own journey, but sometimes just having that one supportive and approachable woman can make all the difference in showing then how to succeed.

HLM: What sparks joy for you?
LR: This answer is easy! My family is my joy from beginning to end. I am blessed to have four children, two biological and two by marriage. Each child brings me a different type of joy that fills my heart and beyond. But, when they are all busy and my husband and I can enjoy each other, we enjoy nice dinners and a glass of wine just the two of us or with our vast variety of friends.

HLM: Top three bucket list goals?
LR: Run a full marathon; a vacation to Greece with my best friend, my hubby; help more with children in need.

HLM: What accomplishment are you most proud of?
LR: I am very proud to have become a real estate agent 20 years ago.

HLM: Can you describe a key event that had an impact on your life?
LR: I was a victim of real estate fraud when I attempted to buy my first house. That is when I committed to getting my license so that I can help people obtain the dream of homeownership, and to protect them at the same time. I wanted to help people in my similar circumstance, to make sure that they are not taken advantage of just because of a language barrier.

HLM: How is your time best spent outside work?
LR: I am either running on Sundays or doing CrossFit Monday through Saturday. I very rarely take a day off from my ritual of fitness. I use fitness as an escape from the day-to-day stresses and for therapy to allow myself time to manifest my next move, and of course spending quality time with my two rescues, Kiki and Coco, my adorable dogs.

HLM: Do you have a favorite quote?
LR: “There is always room for improvement.”

HLM: What are you currently reading?
LR: The Mountain is You: Transforming Self-Sabotage into Self-Mastery by Brianna Wiest.

HLM: Favorite food or dessert?
LR: Seafood, pasta, sushi; crème brûlée, cannoli.
