Moving to a new neighborhood is stressful enough, but what if you’re coming from another city or state—let alone another country? If you’ve ever been in a similar position, you know how invaluable it is to find that one agent who can relate to your situation and advocate on your behalf at every turn. That’s where Irma comes in.
Irma returned to Northern Virginia after an international business career that took her all over the United States, Central and South America, and Asia—12 moves over 29 years. She is also fluent in Spanish and Portuguese.
She believes the best agents listen intently to their clients’ needs: Does the property need to be on your child’s school bus route, or near the Metro? What are the most important features you look for in a new neighborhood? “I’ve dealt with everything you can imagine—there’s nothing much out there that intimidates me,” she says.
If a client only has two days to make a decision, Irma will compile a thoughtfully tailored list of available properties that fit her buyer’s requirements, so there’s no wasted time. “Buying or selling a home is a significant investment, and you have to trust who you’re working with,” she explains.
Irma has an MBA from the Thunderbird School of Global Management in Glendale, Arizona, and an accounting degree from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. She was previously the financial operations manager for ExxonMobil’s retail business global support center located in Guatemala following several years in other strategic financial roles that took her around the world.
Irma currently lives in Arlington. When she's not working, she loves to spend time with family and friends, play golf, and take her pup Rusty for walks. Since her passion for travel has never subsided since it was first ignited years ago, Irma continues to seek adventure around the world whenever she has free time.
