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.

Number of Years in the Industry
Why do you love working in real estate?
I love to see that special smile on someone’s face when they get the keys to their new home or when they turn over the keys so that they can move on to the next chapter of their lives. I also enjoy the marketing aspects of real estate, creating new ways to reach out to people, as well as pushing the limit of what is expected. Additionally, the “Details” – the curb appeal, the layouts and designs, and the architecture – I love classic buildings, especially in Big Cities. I wouldn’t want to live there, but visiting is okay.
What are you most proud of in your career?
I spent a lot of my life living in rentals. I’m proud that I get to help people realize the joys of owning a home, gain a stronger connection to the community and a place that provides a stable environment for their families – sooner rather than later!
Do you have a special cause or volunteer your time?
I have the privilege of working with members of the Communication and Technology Committee as the Vice-Chairperson and I excited about the year ahead. I also serve as a member of the Northern Virginia Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals (VAREP) where we work to increase sustainable homeownership, financial-literacy education, VA loan awareness and economic opportunity for active-duty military and Veterans. I also spend time as a Food Rescue Hero with the ACTS Prince William Food Rescue program where we help to end hunger by delivering potentially wasted food from donors to those in need.
I never met an egg I didn’t like.
