How did you get started in real estate? My career before real estate was always focused on sales. I was an independent contractor for a variety of companies, selling an array of products. Moving into real estate was a natural progression that incorporated my love of sales plus my attention to detail. I enjoy the process of helping people find homes they love.

Most memorable house: I helped an NFL player buy a shell in Columbia Heights. He developed the shell into two high-end condos that I helped sell. It was my first experience with a development deal from start to finish.

Worst experience buying or selling a house: I had a client who was crazy, as in off her meds. Every time she called me to “discuss” the purchase, she screamed obscenities at me. I dealt with her in a professional manner and was able to complete the purchase despite the verbal abuse.
