How did you get started in real estate? I signed up for a real estate class to learn about investing in real estate, and I met a woman in class. We got our licenses and teamed up for six months. It was a good jump start.

How long with the current company? Three months

Licenses and designations: Maryland associate broker; Notary; certified residential specialist; graduate, Realtor institute; accredited buyer representative

Awards: Life member, masters club; life member, distinguished sales club; hall of fame

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: I changed brokers.

What is your area of specialty? Residential waterfront/water view/water-oriented properties

Highest-priced home sold: $964,000

Most memorable house: It was a waterfront boathouse converted into a charming home on pilings. It was grandfathered in as a residential home, but no lender would grant a mortgage on it because it was not on land. The seller ended up holding the mortgage when it sold.

Worst experience: It was a lovely home, but a nasty divorce. Over and over Mr. Seller had hallucinations of bugs crawling all over him and being everywhere in the house. I would go there, and, of course, there were no bugs. It was a very strange experience, but the house sold.
