More than twenty years ago, I applied for my first job. Then a teenager in search of summer employment, I was hired as an administrative aide and research assistant for a real estate agent in Charleston, SC where my father, an Air Force veteran, retired. I was fourteen years old. That experience was the beginning of a journey and a passion for real estate that continues today.
Over the past eight years, I have expanded my real estate practice as principle broker to include Maryland, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Virginia. I draw upon my training and experience as a former enlisted member of the United States Air Force Reserves to bring discipline and integrity to each transaction. And, as the mother of four children, I draw upon a deep well of patience as I assist each client navigate his or her way through the home buying process.
Although I am a native of Texas, I have lived in several places internationally and nationally. I came to Washington, DC in 1994 and attended University of Maryland and American University. There, I studied International Business. I also worked as the Athletic Coordinator for American University's Athletic Department for several years before returning to the Pentagon where I worked in the Air force Reserve personnel office and Secretary of Air Force Acquisitions (Saf/AQ), thereafter I became a procurement specialist for the private sector. Each educational and professional experience brought skills such as --effective communication, shrewd negotiating, and attention to detail--which I now employ on behalf of my clients.
During my years as a real estate agent, I've sold over $10 million in real estate. My experience has prepared me well to assist buyers find value even in an otherwise challenging economic environment. I enjoy working with individuals across a broad spectrum of real estate needs including first-time home buyers, real estate investors, commercial transactions, and sellers.
In closing, I welcome you to the DC URBAN LIVING experience. Please permit me to assist you in achieving your real-estate related goals and objectives.
