Growing up, I dreamed of two things: to live in Washington, DC, and to
become a Realtor. Although I was raised in Redlands, California, I was
always drawn to our nation’s capital, a place steeped in such history and
splendor. And as a self-described people person, the idea of working
closely with clients to help them navigate a momentous life event like
buying or selling a home was irresistible. So, after a career in Human
Resources — where I learned the invaluable art of listening — and a stint
as a small business owner, I decided that it was time to start living the
life I had always envisioned for myself. And while my previous experiences
prepared me well for the world of real estate, once I made the transition,
I never looked back.
Today, I’m proud to say that I turned my vision into reality. Over the past
20 years, I have built a successful real estate business that’s virtually
100% referral-based, a fact that I attribute to the enduring relationships
I’ve formed here. When I first moved to the DC area, I didn’t know a single
person; now, I have a community of clients that truly feels like a family,
like home. I treasure my role as a trusted advisor who helps others find
their place in DC just as I have found mine.
Above all, I believe in creating personalized, seamless experiences for my
clients that are tailored to their distinct needs and goals. I also believe
that when it comes to real estate, honesty is always the best policy.
Whether you’re buying your very first home or downsizing, my mission is to
arm you with the knowledge you need to make the decision that’s right for
you and to have some fun along the way. After all, who said real estate had
to be boring?
I’ve moved several times in my life — including my relocation from
California — and as a Realtor, I’ve sold close to 1,000 homes to date. It
is these personal and professional experiences that help me to relate to
those I work with not just as clients, but as people. Real estate is, after
all, a uniquely human profession, and I carry that understanding with me
day in and day out.
When I’m not hosting open houses and chasing down leads, I enjoy traveling,
spending time with my husband and children, and getting involved in the
Silver Spring community, where I call home today. I’m also known amongst
friends as a wine connoisseur, and can often be found doling out advice on
the perfect bottle to buy for any given occasion.
