How did you get started in real estate? I started in the mortgage industry first. The market was very fickle and yet the refinance business was thriving. After originating loans, processing and coordinating settlements, I decided I would try my hand on the other side of the coin. So, after the company I was working for got sold — twice — I felt I could build a stable base of business. After my first full year in real estate with Long & Foster Real Estate — and some pretty late nights — I received a rookie-of-the-year honor and later went on to be recognized in the top 10 pool of producers in an office of more than 70 agents.

How long with the current company? Since 2001.

Licenses: Real estate broker in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia

Associations: National Association of Realtors, Maryland Association of Realtors, and Prince George’s County Association of Realtors

Awards: Long & Foster president’s and director’s club awards and million dollar club designation; Prince George’s County Association of Realtors Gold Award for sales.

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: Coming to grips with the loss of my very young father; receiving a formal invitation for my brokerage to join the Coldwell Banker franchise.

Highest-priced home sold: $1,100,000

Most memorable house: It was a custom-built rambler in the Mount Vernon area. It was owned by a charming elderly couple, who decorated each room of the home with memorabilia from their travels. They were both educators with no children and had traveled abroad most of their careers. Their home was truly an international showcase, unique and wonderful for entertaining.

Age: 35

Pets: Four mastiffs

Community service: Household Realty sponsors community youth basketball teams in the District and Maryland.

What is your personal dream house? Something contemporary, with lots of light, on the water, with a view of the ocean from my bedroom, breakfast room and home office. I’d prefer a private tropical location with breathtaking views and waves.
