Why I love Real Estate
Blame it on Barbie, bubblegum and the 1970’s, where it all began with one little girl who wanted Barbie’s Dream House and was instead given a cardboard box and told to be creative. Well, that little girl designed and developed a city of cardboard mansions complete with pools and interior design elements. The envious neighborhood kids began to bargain and it wasn’t long until this developer was negotiating contracts and handing over ownership to cardboard McMansions. Thus began the fun journey in creative marketing, savvy negotiating skills and fulfilling client’s dreams. From that point on, this little girl was hooked on Real Estate.
With an entrepreneurial sales and marketing interest from the start, it was an easy progression professionally. With nearly two decades of Real Estate experience, I focus on helping my clients realize the greatest return on their real estate investments. I am a motivated, results-driven individual excelling in utilizing technology and problem solving skills to effectively and efficiently help my clients achieve their Real Estate objectives.
With exceptional marketing, communication and networking skills I provide the utmost in quality service to my clients.

A rescue dog fan, my furry children include:
Charlie, a senior Golden Retriever and retired service dog who appreciates every single day he is not at the pound, and gives the most amazing hugs.
Murphy an overly stout and fluffy Havanese known for over-eating and stockpiling bones and toys in the couch and lives for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. He also enjoys massage and bubble baths.
Last but not least, Bentley, a Havanese runt with severe epilepsy, a fantastic attitude and famous rabbit hop who loves to watch nature tv. His favorite food is watermelon.

Spirit Animal: Firefly
As a creature of light, it should come as no surprise that the firefly is a symbol of illumination and leadership.
The firefly emits its radiant glow, providing a guiding lantern in the surrounding darkness. The firefly symbolism reminds us that our paths are made lighter if we allow beauty and grace to fill our lives. The firefly offers an abundance of positive and inspiring messages and ignites our inner passion and fire to drive us to express it joyfully.
Fireflies lead with their light.
