How did you get started in real estate? I was living in London, and my estate agent there told me, “You’d be great at this.” When I returned to the United States a few years later and needed to re-evaluate my life, I remembered what he said. So, I tried it, and he was right. It’s a great fit.

What is your area of specialty? Alexandria, South Alexandria, Franconia and Kingstowne

Highest-priced home sold: $2,610,000

Most memorable house: My first one. I helped paint the kitchen to prepare it for showing.

Worst experience: In all these years, only once has a buyer gotten cold feet and not come to settlement. I was the listing agent, so I didn’t have any influence on the buyer to try to calm him down or settle his nerves. So we had to re-market the property and take more time on top of the original days on the market. In the long run, it sold for $10,000 less than it was going to the first time. That was my worst experience, because I felt so badly for the owner.
