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 Long and Foster
Number of Years in the Industry
Why do you love working in real estate?
I enjoy assisting people with their real estate needs. The flexibility I have with this job enables me to successfully juggle the demands of wife, mom, grandmother and daughter.
Favorite Work Story
I met Mr & Mrs. H when they looked at a log cabin in Madison. They passed on this REO but found another they wanted to buy. Using an escalation clause, we won the bid! BUT, there was pending litigation causing a cloud on the title. We ultimately voided the contract. The property sat vacant for 2 years. Another client contacted me to tour the property and I grabbed one of the flyers from the table. This client wasn’t interested so I mailed the flyer to Mr & Mrs H, who replied “you’re a temptress!” They chose to view the house again and, after a few trials & tribulations, including a bat in the house, we were able to successfully close on their dream log home!
What are you most proud of in your career?
I have worked hard to beat my personal goals each year and strive to keep in touch continuously with previous clients. I want them to know I am always here for them and any others they know that might need a good agent in the area.
Do you have a special cause or volunteer your time?
I am a member of the Belmont Club of Women and served the past two years as Secretary and Treasurer. We raise money to donate as scholarships and to charitable organizations including food banks.
I am a first time grandmother (he’s 3 months old) and I am blessed that my daughter and her husband chose to move from SC to VA in May. I have “lived” with my grandson since he came home from the hospital.
