How did you get started in real estate? I entered real estate after 10 years in advertising and marketing. I enjoyed the process of buying my own home, and I thought it would make a great profession.

How long with the current company? Three years

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

Associations: Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors, National Association of Realtors, Maryland Association of Realtors, Northern Virginia Association of Realtors

Awards: 2006 Coldwell Banker Rookie of the Year; President’s Club 2006, 2007

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: Standing onstage last spring in front of the entire Coldwell Banker family receiving the Rookie of the Year award.

What is your area of specialty? Homes priced in the $500,000 to $1,200,000 range located in lower Montgomery County and Northwest Washington.

Highest-priced home sold: $1,400,000

Most memorable house: Selling my parents’ home after 27 years, my childhood home. It was a tough sell because my father is disabled, and I had to sell the home that he kept over my head throughout my entire life.

Worst experience: A pipe erupted and flooded a listing of mine the night before settlement. Quick moving and a good Rolodex got the home cleaned and back to the settlement table in less than a week.

Age: 35

Pets: Two dogs, both lab mixes, Britney and Mikey
