I am a graduate of Virginia Tech and Georgetown University and discovered my passion for DC real estate when I moved to DC in 2000. I worked as an import trade enforcement officer with the U.S. Department of Commerce as a number cruncher and bought and renovated homes in my time off. In 2004, I left the Feds and became a real estate consultant. Since then, I have enthusiastically served DC buyers and sellers combining proficient analytical abilities and attention to detail with my knowledge of old homes and renovations to guide buyers when comparing homes for purchase and sellers when preparing homes for sale. My negotiation skills and ability to assess the value of a home through my vast understanding of the DC market have helped numerous buyers achieve their real estate goals. I value a personal approach and pride myself on my experiences as a DC home buyer, seller, renovator, and a DC mom of two public school kids to be able to empathetically treat each client and their homes individually based on their specific needs to tailor a client-specific purchase or sales plan.
