Why do you love working in real estate?
I love real estate because it’s something new and exciting every day with tons of learning/growing opportunities. I love seeing buyers’ eyes light up when we find “the one”. I love seeing the next chapter in sellers’ lives come true as they sell. I love the flexibility of a Real Estate career. The irony is that when I graduated from George Mason University I was working part-time at 1st Choice (my mother’s Company) and I said I would never be a Realtor like her!

Favorite Work Story
I really began my career in Real Estate when I was about 5 years old! When my mother would bring home old contracts and paperwork, I would play real estate. I carried a briefcase, wrote contracts and looked at old MLS books.

What are you most proud of in your career?
Clients who become lifelong friends after helping them in Real Estate – what a treasure they are!

Do you have a special cause or volunteer your time?
My special cause is anything my Church is involved in that helps people – visiting nursing home residents; cooking meals for the sick; splitting wood for the elderly; Christmas caroling at the hospital; visiting shut-ins – whatever can bring a smile to someone!

Fun Fact
My husband and I love, breed, raise, train & sell Tennessee Walking Horses. It’s so exciting to see a foal’s personality begin to blossom, they are so much like kids! Some are mischievous, some are loving, some are rebellious, some are fun, some are serious and some are just crazy! Whenever there’s a tough real estate day, a few moments with a wonderful horse helps wash it all away!
