Owner/Broker/Managing Broker +
As a former corporate marketing executive, I’m all about value and market positioning. I’ve had my real estate license since 2005 and have nicely blended my strategic, creative, business and intuitive skills with my knowledge of real estate and the area.
My passion is in helping people. In the real estate business, I enjoy helping people find that perfect property that exceeds their expectations. I want my clients to be overjoyed. I strongly believe viewing home options and sharing my knowledge of the area and neighborhoods is just the start. I have a unique ability to negotiate well and take the due diligence and closing process seriously and personally with no detail be overlooked. I originally went into real estate knowing I would “raise the bar” and bring 100% commitment to every real estate client I was honored to represent.
I feel so fortunate to be able to introduce clients to this very special place in the World. Every day I feel blessed for finding it and look forward to having others enjoy this area, too. It is truly life changing!
I started my nearly 25 year career in the field as an appraiser in Raleigh where my husband and I raised our two children. This foundation in appraising gave me a unique and valuable background into real estate. Over the past 20 years, I grew my reputation and awards and was even listed as one of the top 25 agents in the Raleigh/Durham (Triangle) area in the Triangle’s “Book of Lists.” Although the awards and top lists are great, the most important thing to me is my clients and how they feel and how satisfied they are with my service.
Most of my former clients have been repeat clients and given me referrals which has helped my business grow. I am happy to say, too, that they are not only clients but have become friends. The most satisfying experience since moving my business and family to Southport, is that many have come to me to help them sell their homes in Wake County and find them new homes or a second home in Brunswick County. I love it!!! It is so special!
Although Brunswick County is where my life and focus in now directed, I can still refer in the Triangle area. That gives me a chance to take care of former clients and provide access to my intense knowledge of that market, too.
I look forward to sharing my knowledge of Southport and all of Brunswick County and will promise nothing less than to exceed your expectations.
I began my real estate journey in Charleston SC after a successful marketing and retail career. After moving to Charlotte new home builders were my focus, where I successfully was able to sell the joy of home ownership with first time, upsizing and downsizing buyers. This also gave me the opportunity to learn and understand the home building process. Winning the top customer service awards was one of my proudest accomplishments as well as earning the respect and friendship of many Charlotte area real estate agents.
Having grown up in Miami, I have always had sand in my shoes, so the beach called me back where I now live in my dream house in Holden Beach, NC. This love for the area and knowledge of the beach life is why I am able to understand and enjoy the challenges and fulfillment of buying (or selling) in and around the beach communities.
As a native of South Carolina, I have seen these beach areas grow over the years. I’ve been in the industry for over 30 years as a Real Estate Broker for NC and SC and have enjoyed working with buyers /sellers as an award- winning Realtor. Having lived in the Caribbean, Florida Keys and the coast of the Carolinas I know the dream of owning a beach house and now have accomplished it by living in Holden Beach NC.
Customer service and dedication is an important characteristic of mine to offer my clients. This is why so many continue to keep in touch and refer their friends and family to me. Whether building a home, buying a resale or land (lots) are areas that I have extensive knowledge to share. When I do take a break, fishing is my choice of relaxation.
