What is your area of specialty? Germantown, Fox Chapel

Highest-priced home sold: $925,000

Most memorable house: I sold a condo to a very good friend of mine. She never thought she could buy a house because of her limited income, but she had great credit history. We were able to find a condo in Germantown, and the day of settlement we both cried in the parking lot.

Worst experience: Some foreign clients were going back to their country. They shipped everything and the deal fell through the day of settlement. They had to stay in the empty house and had to sleep on the floor. I took some blankets to them. It was two days before Christmas. We got another offer and closed two weeks later. They are great people. As far as I know they are very happy in their country.
