How did you get started in real estate? I felt it was the kind of business I was seeking, with a lot of personal involvement, creative marketing and contract negotiation.

What is your area of specialty? Farms, including horse properties; raw land; estates

Most memorable house: It was the property bought by Robert Duvall in The Plains, Va. The competitive nature of the sale itself, the unique home inspection, and other issues and pleasures made it all the more memorable.
Worst experience: I went to take a listing after dark in western Loudoun County. The seller, in an effort to impress me with the beauty of his new pool recently installed on his 10-acre lot, turned all the lights out except for the pool lights and asked me to step forward to get a better look, forgetting to tell me about the unlit Jacuzzi in front of me. Needless to say, I stepped forward and into the Jacuzzi in my brand-new suit. I did get the listing, which I sold.
Family: Daughter, granddaughter
Pets: Horses, cats and dogs, and I recently inherited three sheep that wandered onto the property.
Outside interests: Horse racing, riding, golf, tennis and antiques.
