How did you get started in real estate? My degree is in sociology/anthropology, the study of mankind. Having been a social worker and working as a volunteer in the Fairfax County school system was a good foundation for working with people and solving problems. Flexibility also was a key as I had children in secondary school. I did informational interviews with two brokers before deciding to give real estate a try.

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: I will have to go personal on this one. My brother and I were successful in moving our 93-year-old mother from independent to assisted living after a hip break and surgery. The folks who have gone through this passage will understand the trials and angst of this “accomplishment.”
Area of specialty: I have been 100 percent referral from the beginning of my career. I took all the rosters from the boards and committees on which I had served, and those names became the foundation of my business. I go where the referrals take me, which is all over Northern Virginia.
Highest-priced home sold: $1,400,000
