Worst experience buying or selling a house: Getting a phone call from the buyer’s agent the night before settlement that there was 3 inches of water in the basement. The seller was out of town but authorized me to assemble the necessary contractors and get the problem fixed. The repairs were made, and the home went to settlement two weeks later.

Family: Married with one daughter

Education: Bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communication, University of South Carolina, 1988

What kind of car do you drive? Always a sport utility vehicle so there is room for everyone in my car, currently an Infinity Q56. GPS is mandatory so we can cover a lot of ground and see as many homes in one day as possible.

Describe your personal dream house: The perfect home is one that functions with useful spaces, tons of storage and unique features to make daily chores more pleasant, such as multiple dishwashers and convenient laundry rooms. I keep a journal of all of the unique features I have seen in homes through the years as well as improvements I would make on my own home. I am forever changing and improving by moving walls, adding built-ins and upgrading. My current favorite feature is heated bathroom floors - especially after last winter.
