How did you get started in real estate? I was teaching school full time and decided to use my time after school and on the weekends to do something that I thought I would like.

Most memorable house: Moss Neck Manor, an outstanding example of Greek revival plantation architecture on the National Register of Historic Places. It was Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson’s winter headquarters and site of his Christmas dinner with Gen. Robert E. Lee. This private 288 acres of pristine land had a completely restored mansion complete with formal dining room; light-filled breakfast room; formal library with walnut paneling; and 13 fireplaces, most with original marble mantels. The plaster moldings in the ceilings all added to the wonderful features of this brick mansion.

What is your personal dream house? Where I live now. Comfortable on a few acres, five minutes from my office in Purcellville, views, 4,800 square feet filled with antiques, and lots of light from windows and skylights. Plenty of room for guests and entertaining my friends and clients.
