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.

Title
Real Estate Agent/Realtor

Why do you love working in real estate?
Real estate has been my passion for as long as I can remember. From the architecture of all of the different style homes to the character, decoration, history etc. I always knew that I wanted to be involved in real estate one way or another. Now I get to help families close a chapter in their lives or begin a new one and help them along the way make their dreams come true.

What are you most proud of in your career?
I think the thing that I’ve become the most proud of in my career is that my kids have seen that no matter how long it takes you to get where you want to be that anything is possible if you set your mind to it and want it enough. Most recently, my oldest son graduated high school and for his graduation gift he wanted to take the real estate course to become an agent himself! This makes my heart happy!

Do you have a special cause or volunteer your time?
The Toys for Tots program is very near and dear to me. I have worked at the Foundation for over 11 years and each year I am more grateful to be a part of such a great charity that helps give back to their communities and most importantly the children in those communities, our future!
