Our Story

In an environment where it seems a real estate agent can be found around every corner, finding the right agent to represent YOU can be a frustrating experience.

Unlike most other realtors, I treat my transactions as business, and I treat my clients as people. As an Army wife with MANY moves under my belt, I fully understand the pressures, stressors, and emotions involved in finding the perfect home, whether it be across town or across the country!

You can trust that I will use my experience in contract and post-contract negotiations to make the process run as smooth as possible. I will always understand how life-changing a real estate deal can really be because I've been there, too.

Follow this page for tips on real estate, decorating, remodeling, and LIVING LIFE!

Happy House Hunting!
