How did you get started in real estate? I had made a job change that did not work out and found myself in need of a new career path. It was suggested that I get my real estate license (if for no other reason, so I could sell my own home if the need came up). I took the course and got my license but truly never thought I would seriously pursue it as a full-time career. After about five or six months, a good friend gave me the opportunity to sell their $1,300,000 house in Potomac, and from that point on I was hooked!

How long have you been with the current company? Three years

Licenses and designations: Licensed in Maryland and the District

Associations: Greater Capital Area Association of Realtors, Maryland Association of Realtors, Metropolitan Regional Information System

Awards: President’s Club, Executive Club, Rookie of the Year

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: I had the opportunity to work with a wonderful family from West Africa. Their two adult children had just moved here to be with them and to help them qualify for a mortgage. The problem was they did not have any money for the down payment. I found a wonderful program in Montgomery County that offered the opportunity to finance the down payment through the Housing Opportunities Commission. Our in-house lender worked with us on the process, and my clients were not only able to qualify to purchase their home, but we also were able to do so within the time frame that allowed them to take advantage of the first-time-homebuyer’s tax credit!

Area of specialty: First-time homebuyers seem to be my niche at the moment. I am also a great troubleshooter, and this really helps when working with buyers who have complications because of financing or other issues.
