How did you get started in real estate? I had a great mentor who introduced me to the business and gave me superb guidance from Day One until I made it into the top 5 percent of area Realtors in my second year of business.

How long with the current company? Since 2002

Highest-priced home sold: $2,900,000

Most memorable house: A perfectly restored Tudor in an equally beautiful group of four Tudors in Cleveland Park. This home had been lovingly restored with an artist’s eye and a craftsman’s hand. Within earshot of the National Cathedral bells, this beautiful home nestled in a perfect setting and was entirely genuine.

Worst experience: I had listed a home for my clients, who discovered two days before settlement that they did not have clear title to the home they were selling. Thank goodness for calm in a crisis, strong title insurance and a good attorney.
