How did you get started in real estate? I worked in biotechnology sales for years. I started to purchase property and remodel it and began to fall in love with architecture and design, and so a career in real estate seemed like the perfect fit.

How long with the current company? 1 year

Licenses and designations: Real estate sales in Maryland, Virginia and the District

Associations: National Association of Realtors, Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors, Metropolitan Regional Information Systems

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: Helping a friend purchase a home. It was the least expensive sale I have ever had, but working with a client to make a dream come true was an amazing experience. We had to overcome many hurdles since money was not readily available. Working closely together and with great lenders, we were able to get my friend a home to help establish his future and financial stability. Washington is a tough real estate market when you are a first-time home purchaser. Knowing that a friend is better off today than they were a year ago is very uplifting and inspiring to me.

What is your area of specialty? Northwest Washington

Highest-priced home sold: Several million dollars.

Most memorable house: I have a client who became a friend through the sales process. She had built an amazing, lovely home in McLean that was done to perfection. She has such attention to detail that every piece of wood, fixture and appliance was thought out. It wasn’t one of the new McMansion buildings but one that really stood out as one built with a great amount of thought and taste. It was nestled in a wooded area with stucco construction, Vermont-slate roofing and copper gutters. I not only grew to appreciate this home, but I also found a client who became a good friend.

Worst experience: The most disappointing thing when purchasing a home is when things are not fully disclosed or people mislead you. My advice to anyone buying or selling is to be honest. Things always come out in the end, and it is better to follow the Golden Rule.

What is your personal dream house? My dream house would be on an island in Greece. It would be filled with many good friends and family and would have a view of the water. I love all of the detail that goes into a home, but the reality is that I am happiest around the people I love and in a beautiful location.
