I am a Coastal Virginia native – born and raised in Norfolk. After living in Richmond, VA, Chicago, IL and Phoenix, AZ, I returned to Coastal Virginia / Hampton Roads in 2003. I became a licensed REALTOR® in Virginia in 2008. I enjoy helping people make their real estate dreams come true and sharing and promoting the wonderful features of Coastal Virginia.
Whether you are buying or selling, my promise is to provide you exceptional service and results.
My communication style is straightforward and sincere. I regularly tell my clients – “I may not tell you what you want to hear, but I will tell you what you need to know to make informed decisions.” My commitment to communicate openly and freely with others led me to seek and complete a degree in Public Relations at Virginia Commonwealth University. In my 20+ years of business to business and consumer sales experience, I have become skilled in marketing, promotions, and advertising. In all of these roles, it has always been extremely important to me to provide excellent service and thorough follow up to my clients.
My commitment to my clients is to act as a consultant and be their advocate throughout the entire real estate process. Attention to detail, being proactive and maintaining open and honest communication is my key to getting results.
I stay up to date with industry trends, technology, real estate law, and current advertising strategies. My interest in and knowledge in these areas, along with continuous training, enable me to serve my real estate clients in the best possible way.
In addition to negotiating sales contracts, I assist clients with other real estate related transactions and processes. I am also skilled in providing direction and tips for home staging, which has become increasingly important when selling a home.
As a Norfolk native deeply networked into the community, I appreciate and celebrate Coastal Virginia’s diversity and all that it has to offer. I enjoy assisting buyers with discovering and learning about Coastal Virginia as we search for their new home.
Finally, I support my local Coastal Virginia community and the arts. I enjoy volunteering and have served on the board of directors for Tidewater Arts Outreach (TAO) and the Ghent Business Association (GBA). I am an avid photographer who loves traveling, the outdoors, and animals. I’ve fostered kittens, rescued cats and dogs, and support several local animal rescue organizations. I currently have four cats (Boyfriend, Sassy, Dori, and Mama Girl) and one dog (Lewis) all of which are rescues.
Please contact me when you start your search for a real estate professional. I would like the opportunity to discuss how we might work together to achieve your real estate goals.
