As a native of the Charlotte Metro area, I am considered a unicorn, as transplants from all over the country now call Charlotte home. Since I’ve lived in this area my whole life, I am very familiar with the local real estate market and its shifting landscape.
After a 17-year civil servant career at the US Bankruptcy Court, I returned to college and earned a BSBA in finance, with a concentration in risk management and insurance from UNC Charlotte. I credit Suzie Orman and my bankruptcy career for my focus on financial literacy and risk management. After graduating, I gained experience as a commercial property claims adjuster, and a small business underwriter with national insurance carriers. Then I realized I needed a “cubicle free” career.
My real estate journey was born from this need to engage with the public. I surrounded myself with experienced Realtors and found my niche in residential real estate. My specialty is first-time buyers, and buyers and sellers who are repositioning due to growing family. My favorite part of helping clients is seeing their smiles after a successful closing. Making friends along the way is a bonus.
I’ve learned that adapting to market changes and industry innovations is key to keeping your clients competitive, which is why I’ve partnered with Better Real Estate. Its digital mortgage platform makes homeownership “fast, transparent, and low cost.” Thus, I am better positioned to help you achieve your real estate goals more efficiently.
If you’re local, I’ll extend the best of Southern hospitality, with one caveat: No mercy extended on the billiards table. If you’re a transplant, I’m ready to welcome you to Charlotte and introduce you to some local favorites, like Optimist Hall and the US National Whitewater Center. Either way, I’m happy to serve.
