How did you get started in real estate? I was looking for a house for my family and found that I enjoyed searching for homes. I thought I would be good at helping others find a home.

How long with the current company? 18 months

Licenses: Real estate sales in Maryland and Virginia

Awards: Million-Dollar Club

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: I had a lead, a military family relocating to the Fort Meade area. I had to find them a home even though they were 2,500 miles and three time zones away. I visited homes and sent them photos of the neighborhoods and the homes. I was able to find them a home they love. The first time they actually saw it was when they flew out for the home inspection.

What is your area of specialty? Howard County, Old Town Alexandria.

Highest-priced home sold: $540,000

Most memorable house: Split foyer sold to the military family who had never stepped foot in it.

Worst experience: Purchasing my first home. The agent copied the key for us and told us it was OK to start putting items in the home before closing, even though the sellers did not give permission. This caused much more tension and stress than anyone should ever have to deal with during this process.

Age: 35

Family: Married; daughter and son

Education: Associate of arts in criminal justice, Los Angeles Community College, 1993.

Community affiliations: Ellicott Mills Middle School PTA

What kind of car do you drive? 2004 Toyota Camry

What is your personal dream house? My dream house would have a bathroom for each family member, a huge kitchen, lots of land for horses and a cow, a pond for fishing, and a daily maid.
