The Fredericksburg Area Association of REALTORS® Member Spotlight feature allows members of the community to get to know each other before working with each other in a transaction. Each member answers a series of questions to reveal more about themselves as people.  It is FAAR’s hope that learning about an individual may spark connections that blossom via email, phone conversations or in-person meetings at events and classes.

Why do you love working in real estate?
I love architecture, local history, interacting with people and solving challenges. I would say these are pluses for working in the real estate industry.

Favorite Work Story 
How much space do I have??? Too many stories to pick one. But… there is a story about working with one of Kenny White’s buyers and the home owner was home in her hot tub. I’ll let Kenny tell the rest of the story.

What are you most proud of in your career?
Being I’m a 2nd generation REALTOR®, 2nd generation Home Inspector and the 3rd generation in construction… carrying on the skills and work ethics that I was taught growing up working in my father’s construction company and 2 hardware stores.

Do you have a special cause or volunteer your time? 
I have been a sound tech for over 25 years and volunteer at my church, Stafford Crossing Community Church. I also go on national & international church mission trips building homes, repairing homes and building relationships. I’ve built/repaired homes in Jamaica, Honduras, Mississippi, Virginia, West Virginia, Navajo Reservation and Long Island. I’ve done relational work in Mumbai, India.

Fun Fact
In high school, I lived across the street from Betty Jasmund in Aquia Harbour.
I’m a licensed home inspector and a certified Radon testing tech. I’ve owned/operated a home inspection business for 29 years. I’ve performed over 10,000 home inspections and over 2,500 Radon tests through the years. I know a thing or two about houses because I’ve seen a thing or two.
