My real estate career began many years ago, helping my parents with their Real Estate business in Florida. Many Thanksgivings were shared with people we barely knew, in the midst of a major move, and our home was always open to them. That feeling of helping people to achieve their dream, I knew was more than just selling homes, it was reaching out and letting people know that you would be there, every step of the way, so they always had someone they trusted to help them get to their happily ever after. Creating friendships that outlast the sale and understanding the needs of the people you are working with has and will always been my goal!

After graduating from high school, I attended college, only to take a small hiatus to raise my children. My husband and I have seven, so you can imagine it takes a lot to shake me! Being a Private Investigator for almost 20 years during that time is probably why we were able to raise 7 relatively GOOD children!!  Several times over the years, I continued my college education, graduating at the age of 47 with a degree as a Paralegal! Anything worth attaining, sometimes takes a little time and effort!

During that time, we were also blessed with four fabulous grandchildren! If I knew how great grandchildren were when I was younger, I think I’d have had them first!

As a Private Investigator, attention to detail is a must. This has definitely poured over into my real estate career. Listening to what people are saying is how you really understand your clients. The relationship between client – agent is so important, because, let’s face it, whether you are a first-time home buyer or a seasoned home renovator, this is one of the biggest and most important decisions you will ever make. Having someone you trust should be priority, and I do not take that responsibility lightly. I am with you every step of the way, whether we look at 1 house or 30 houses, my commitment to you and to achieving your goals is priority!

Someone once asked me why I take so much time with each client. The answer is simple. I understand the diverse assortment of feelings that occur with each move. I’m a military mom, and I’ve seen and experienced those feelings firsthand. Selling a house or buying a new home – my goal is that your end result is satisfying and peaceful!

My husband and I have lived in the Columbia area for more than 15 years. Both of us Northern transplants,  I knew when we arrived, this was home! It’s not just the location or the scenery or even the 70 degree January days, it’s the feeling of home you can’t help but get the minute you arrive!

Having two sons in the Navy, our children are spread all over the country, so we get to spend our time exploring this great country we live in! Regardless of the distance or means of travel – motorcycle, car, plane or boat – life should always be an adventure! 

I’d be honored to help you on your journey. Are you ready to begin your new adventure?
