Growing up with a mom who was a realtor and a dad who was a builder, I always knew real estate was something I wanted to do. Taking the corporate route first gave me a great foundation that helped me to be successful in my real estate business by learning to cultivate and grow relationships, learning how to manage a business, and learning how to communicate with people on all levels of a business.
We love to watch movies, cook and eat together and experience new things.
I also am a swimmer and swim on the Mecklenburg Swim Association Masters swim team. In fact, my first open water event for this year is coming up in June – I’ll be swimming 2.4 miles in the Low Country Splash in Charleston.
Having always been a big supporter of cancer research, I’ve walked twice in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, which is a 2-day, 39.3-mile walk. I was fortunate to raise nearly $4,000 over my two years. I also volunteer my time and body to cancer research and just began participating in a long-term cancer research study. Researchers will follow me for many years, periodically take my blood, and learn about my lifestyle choices and how that relates to others and to cancer diagnoses. My mom and grandmother passed away from cancer, so I believe this is important work.
Another cause I am passionate about is brain injury awareness, specifically brain aneurysms. I know more about this subject than I hope anyone ever has to know. An immediate family member suffered a ruptured aneurysm, which is fatal in about half of the cases. Fortunately, he did make a full recovery. However, this was a clear lesson and reminder about how delicate life is, and how we need to be thankful and purposeful every day.
I enjoy helping people, and I pride myself on providing great client service and support. I specialize in helping a seller with selling her home quickly and for the highest price possible, as well as in helping a buyer find his dream house. I also enjoy helping empty nesters to downsize into smaller homes when they no longer need a lot of space, and helping successful sellers with negotiations when they have multiple offers.
I know the area, and I know how to get real estate transactions done with as little stress as possible! This can be especially important for a first-time homebuyer or first-time home seller who can find the whole process a little overwhelming. Whether you need help with finance and finding a home loan, relocation or buying a custom home, I can help you every step of the way.
There are many great neighborhoods in Mecklenburg County and Union County in NC, and Lancaster County and York County in SC, with homes for sale to choose from that are perfect for your stage of life! Some great areas in and around Charlotte NC to live include:
