How did you get started in real estate? I was a stay-at-home mom until my only daughter was a junior in high school. At that point, I decided to get a part-time job. Because my background was in marketing and sales, I decided to try real estate. Part-time work very quickly turned full-time and overtime as I immediately fell in love with the profession.
Awards: Lifetime member of Northern Virginia Board of Realtors; Top Producers Club; Multi-Million Dollar Sales Club; Weichert Chairman of the Board Elite Club.
Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: Broke all-time Annadale office record for individual agent volume for first quarter in 2003. Also, was top producer in Annandale office for 2003.
Most memorable home: Most fun was selling a functionally obsolete home in Vienna on a lovely lot to a builder. After three years of going through the rezoning process, that builder is now building three new homes on that property, which I am marketing.
Worst experience: After the very successful sale of one of my listings, the seller requested and obtained a rent-back from the buyer. Mother Nature then intervened and, during a severe storm, sent a large tree through the roof of the home. The new owner was in California at the time. It was a nightmare.
Family: Married; daughter
