How did you get started in real estate? I was in management for many years prior to deciding to change my career path. Having a team that works together with everyone’s best interest in mind is the way I work for my clients.

How long with the current company? I made the commitment to go with my broker and then pursued my real estate license.

License: Virginia real estate sales

Associations: Virginia Association of Realtors, Prince William Association of Realtors

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: About three months prior to getting my real estate license, I bought my first rental property. Since that time, I have purchased a total of five rentals and a new home in Clifton that I will be moving into shortly.

Highest-priced home sold: $874,200

Most memorable house: I negotiated the sale of a home that is worth more than $1,100,000 down to $874,200.

Worst experience: My worst experience was the home that I personally purchased prior to becoming an agent. It was my first rental purchase and I had an unsettling feeling throughout the purchase of the home. I decided at that time to go into real estate. My goal is to treat people honestly and do whatever it takes to follow through on my word and to make the buying or selling experience as stress-free for my clients as possible.

Age: 49

Family: Grown daughter; engaged to be married in April 2006

Pets: A dog, Charlie; two mice; a fish

Education: High school diploma, T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, 1972; attended Washington School for Secretaries

What kind of car do you drive? Lexus SC 400

What is your personal dream house? I want a huge master bedroom and no dining room. I’d love to have as many rooms open as possible. I love the open feel to a large home — as few walls as possible. I would also like to have my office off in another building and have it so that I would walk through a glass breezeway or walkway to get to the office area.
