Trusted Advisor serving my clients as a full-time REALTOR since 2006
I have been an Ocean County resident since I am 4 years old and enjoy all the great things our communities have to offer. When I'm not serving my clients, I love spending time on our beaches and in all the parks running and biking. Prior to my career in real estate, I was in the travel industry for 19 years and still LOVE to travel whenever I can. Whether I'm traveling or home, I enjoy great meals and wine with friends and family. I also spend time participating in fundraising events for the great local charities in our area.
I was licensed in 2003 and began working full-time in real estate in 2006. I began my career in Seaside Park, where I grew up, and received a great education in the secondary market and land use. In 2008, I took those skills and increased my market area by moving to RE/MAX New Beginnings Realty located in downtown Toms River.
Continuing education is a priority for me because I always want to improve my skills and better serve my clients. I hold the Graduate REALTOR Institute (GRI), Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR), Short Sales & Foreclosure Resource (SFR) and Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA) designations. I have recently earned a Certification as a Real Estate Staging Expert.
I have received the NJ REALTORS Circle of Excellence Sales Award in 2011, 2012, and 2015 - 2018, the RE/MAX 100% Club in 2011, 2012, and 2015 - 2018 and the RE/MAX Executive Club in 2013. In 2018 I was honored to enter the RE/MAX Hall of Fame.
In 2009, I was awarded the New Jersey REALTOR-ASSOCIATE of the Year and the Ocean County REALTOR-ASSOCIATE of the Year.
I support many non-profit agencies in the communities I serve through the REALTOR Community Service Committee that I have been a member of since 2006. I am currently a volunteer at JBJ Soul Foundation Soul Kitchen. I have served on the Ocean County Board of REALTORS Board of Directors since 2015. I was the 2016 Secretary/Treasurer, 2017 Vice President, 2018 President-Elect for the Ocean County Board of REALTORS. We've had a board merger so I am now the Vice President for the NEXUS Association of REALTORS.
My business is primarily by referral and I find that is very beneficial to my clients. I rely on them to be my advocates so I provide a high level of service. Real estate is the largest investment many people will make and I believe it is my job to make sure they understand the process and have someone who can help with the logistics and the emotions.
