Who I Am
Proud to be your DMV Real Estate Expert
I’m a self-proclaimed lover of all things real estate, having been bitten by the real estate bug more than 15 years ago with the purchase of my first fixer-upper investment property. Today, as a Realtor®, I continue to fuel this passion by helping buyers, sellers, and investors navigate real estate transactions and achieve their goals.
As a Michigan native and 13 year resident of the DMV, I pride myself most on earning the trust of my clients by being responsive, and bringing value. Helping my clients experience the joy of getting an outcome that exceeds their expectations drives everything I do.
My professional background includes sales and project management in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, and I possess two Master’s degrees from George Washington University, including an MBA in International Business. I'm also proudly one of less than 5000 agents worldwide who is a Certified International Property Specialist. A brief period of my early career was spent as a celebrity personal assistant and assistant road manager to the legendary late Aretha Franklin, which I credit for my ability to remain calm and focused with the most exacting clients.
I’m known for my integrity, responsiveness, and as a skilled negotiator that keeps a laser focus on the needs of my clients.

From sharing detailed market data, to consulting on listing and offer strategy, my chief goal is to assist my clients in reaching the finish line in a way that exceeds their expectations.
