How did you get started in real estate? Having worked for builders and in all facets of the business, it was a natural evolution.

How long with the current company? Since 1995: Pardoe Real Estate was bought by NRT Inc., which is now Coldwell Banker

Awards: Top 1 to 2 percent nationally throughout 24-year career; Coldwell Banker International President’s Elite; Montgomery County sales awards.

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: Continually increasing my production and retention of previous clients/customers while remaining active in the community and serving on the board and many committees within the real estate community.

What is your area of specialty? Montgomery County

Highest-priced home sold: $1,295,000

Most memorable house: I listed the Rockville historic property known as “The Painted Lady.” This home had been featured in books and magazines and extensive research for my fact sheet was aided by the historic societies in the area.

Worst experience: Being sued as a listing agent. The house was in an estate and the suit was over the presumed illness caused to the buyers due to formaldehyde. It was thrown out of court.

What is your personal dream house? My dream home would be a two- to three-bedroom home with den or office space, two levels, top-of-the-line kitchen, great room with fireplace, on the water with lots of windows in an area that affords easy access to the Washington area.
