Someone needs my help to sell a house...not just a house. Chances are they've Lived there... Loved there... and despite the faults of the house or the owners, it's a home.

I originally began my professional life as a 1st and 2nd grade teacher. While on maternity leave I realized I did not want to go back to teaching but still needed something more to do...hence my real estate career began! Buying my first home was a very traumatic experience for me as I grew up in NYC in an apartment and we never owned a home. I wanted to help other young couples go through that event with less trauma and with more guidance as this was cathartic for me as well. As time went on I began working with all types of buyers and eventually I grew into a seasoned Realtor comfortable with everyone. In 1990 I decided to try office management while I continued to list and sell real estate for my private clientele. Eventually I became an area manager as well as still managing my office as well as still listing and selling. I really do not know how I did it! In 1997 I realized my true love was only listing and selling and I resigned my manager positions and became "a kid" again having all the flexibility I did not have while being a manager.
With the advent of the internet in full bloom in 1997, real estate was evolving into a more creative and interesting profession. I fully embraced the internet and all it offered as well as launching into my personal branding and marketing campaign, which still exists. So here I am still loving what I do and helping people fulfill their housing dreams and goals. I'd love to help you with yours...I am efficient, professional and user friendly. I look forward to hearing from you!
