How did you get started in real estate? I just decided that I could sell real estate and found a real estate school in Fairfax. I earned a license and decided that I also wanted a broker’s license.

License and designations: Virginia real estate broker; Accredited Buyers Representative; graduate, Realtor Institute

Awards: RE/MAX 100 Percent Club, Five-Year Multi-Million Dollar Sales Club; Dulles Area Association of Realtors Top Producer Club; Distinguished Service Award from the Loudoun Tourism Council

Greatest accomplishments in past 12 months: Appointed by the mayor and council of Leesburg to the public art task force committee; named chairman of Thomas Balch Library mural and theme committees; my painting of a horse, titled “Harlequina,” was sponsored by the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce to be auctioned as a fund-raiser for Oatlands Foundation, Loudoun Therapeutic Riding Association and the Loudoun Arts Council.

Area of specialty: Residential sales

Most memorable house: I spent the night in line with a $25,000 check to hold a lot for a client in California. Client wanted to be the first selector for a lot at Belmont Country Club in Ashburn.

Worst experience: In a divorce situation, I arrived at a settlement and the seller’s wife came without her portion of the money needed to sell the home. The buyers could not settle and the home went to bank foreclosure.
