Purchasing or selling a home is one of the most important financial decisions you will make. Just as important, is deciding who will assist you with the process.
My background in nursing, as a wife and mother, helped to develop my nurturing traits that carry over into my work as a Realtor. Clients have describe me as accessible, hardworking and trustworthy. Taking care of clients and doing the best job for them is a priority.
My roots are from the north, born in the Bronx, New York and raised in Sparta, New Jersey, but Arlington, Virginia is home. I moved to Arlington in 1989 and my husband and I purchased our first home together in the Madison Manor neighborhood in 1994. Our roots grew deeper in the community as our family grew. We purchased our next home just a few streets away in 2004 and continued to raise our children in this wonderful community. We are still in this same home, our children are young adults and our household has continued to grow with two rescue cats and two rescue dogs.
After taking time away from nursing, to manage a busy household, it was time to build a career. It was a natural decision to become a Realtor in 2008 because of my ongoing interest in real estate since the early 1990’s.
As a Realtor, my work is not just about transactions but about the relationships that develop with clients. Most of my business comes from client referrals, which results in a great relationships and satisfying results. Whether you are selling or buying, know that by choosing to work with me, you will get an agent knowledgeable about the current market. I will provide information necessary to make informed decisions and help you navigate through the process to ensure a smooth closing at the end.
Buying or selling a home can bring out many emotions that range from elation to concern and I am there for clients from start to finish. Throughout, you can expect professional service, attention to detail and access to years of experience in the local real estate market.
