    Empowering Clients; Building Community.

    I moved to North Carolina over twenty years ago and immediately fell in love with everything this beautiful state has to offer. I adore the Triangle and am so proud to be raising my family here!
    Culture is in abundance and it seems we are always on the cusp of what is new. I believe everyone should know what it feels like to own their own home, their own “little patch of dirt.” It gives folks a sense of identity and community. My parents were in the Marine Corps and I have lived in many different places around the country. I understand the importance of finding the house that makes you feel like you’re home. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 2006 with a degree in Biology and then began a profession in Event Coordinating. I enjoyed working with people on one of the happiest, albeit most stressful, days of their lives. Witnessing the family dynamics and helping them problem-solve until we had executed the event of their dreams was such a pleasure – and I thrived!
    My career in real estate has been even more rewarding than any other time in my professional life. I love helping people navigate through a very significant period in their lives, resulting in the selling or buying of a home. People are my passion and my clients know that – they know I am invested in them, personally and professionally, for the long haul! I pride myself in being a well-informed citizen of our ever-evolving community – I think a good professional must be immersed in her city! I am diligent and bright with lots of ideas that are fresh and organic. I know my science background is an asset as a large part of what I do is research and discovery. Attention to detail is mandatory in this industry and it is a skill in which I pride myself.
    I feel so fortunate to be a part of one of the most successful teams in this industry. Our bottom line is the happiness of our Client. It’s why we’re here; it is why we’ll stay.
