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.

REALTOR® with Holt for Homes
Number of Years in the Industry
Why do you love working in real estate?
This industry really ticks all the boxes for me. I am a bubbly easy going people person, who loves to share in the excitement of finding new homes for my clients. I realized a long time ago I was not cut out for the monotony of a 9-5 office job and so this career field works perfect. My husband and I often used to tour open houses for fun, so how great that now I get to do it as a job!
Favorite Work Story
last year I was videoing a home for an out of state client, when stepped out the back door outside and very nearly stood on a snake, the choice words that came out of my mouth as I was trying to avoid swearing in my english accent were interesting. I decided to go ahead send the video to my client (since I had no intention of going back to redo!) of which they found extremely amusing. It worked out well though, as they posted all over social media how totally committed their realtor was, which was very appreciated! They didn’t buy that house though!!
What are you most proud of in your career?
I’m am most proud of being able to successfully balance being a full time REALTOR® with also running a mobile dog grooming business as well as being a mother to two young boys. It can mean very long hours at times, but I love it
Do you have a special cause or volunteer your time?
I am all about the military clients. I am a spouse of a retired air force member as well as being an air force brat, so I know all too well the stresses that go along with pcs’ing. I offer a rebate program to my military clients (as well as others) as a thank you for your service and for choosing me!
Currently in the process of interviewing to be an agent on House Hunters!
