Wife. Mother. Grandmother. Daughter. Sister. Aunt. Friend. Real Estate Agent. I've had many roles, and I have loved every single one of them. I started my career after my second and last child left for college. Even though I had always volunteered in the community, schools, and church, I needed something to cure my “Empty Nest Syndrome.” So, I got my real estate license in 2003.
We moved to Union County in 1995 and I can honestly say that it was the best move of my life. The low crime rate and tight-knit community gave my family an opportunity to live in a place where we didn’t constantly worry about something happening to each other or our values. It gave us so much peace of mind.
My two children and three grandsons keep us very active in our family life, and my real estate career takes up the rest of my time. Since I have been in real estate, I have been awarded Union County's Top Producer for 12 years, as well as being recognized for selling over $100,000,000.
Sometimes, I wish that I had started my career earlier because serving people is my passion. When I find that perfect home for my clients, it brings me such satisfaction. Knowing that I have made a difference in someone’s life is a reward all unto its own. Years ago, a seasoned agent told me to do one thing: Go to bed every night knowing that you have done right by your customers that day. It was the best advice that I have received (so far). When I know that the property is not right, I will tell my client… even if it costs me the sale. It's far more important to me to have them happy with me one year from now rather than just having them experience the excitement of buying a property.
