How did you get started in real estate? My passion for real estate began the summer between high school and college, when I interned for Townsend Real Estate in Fayetteville, N.C., which inspired me to get my real estate license at 18.

How long with the current company? Six years

Licenses: Real estate sales in Virginia and the District of Columbia

Associations: National Association of Realtors; Greater Capital Association of Realtors

Awards: Top producer; top volume team

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: Selected by the National Association of Realtors as a real estate expert to Host “Top 20 Ways to Improve the Value of Your Home,” a two-hour television special scheduled to air on HGTV in early May.

What is your area of specialty? Kalorama, Dupont and Logan neighborhoods in upper Northwest.

Highest-priced home sold: $5,400,000.

Most memorable house: Assisting my clients in the very competitive and successful purchase of former president Warren G. Harding’s residence on Wyoming Avenue in Kalorama.

Worst experience: I represented clients who found their dream house, placed a down payment and sold their existing home. A week before the closing, the seller reneged on the deal and decided to keep the house. I felt absolutely horrible for my client, who had no place to live.

Age: 38

Family: Two children, Jacob, 13; and Kate, 11

Pets: None

Community service/outside interests: Population Services Inc. Youth-AIDS committee.

Last book read: “A Field Guide to American Houses,” by Virginia and Lee McAlester

Last movie seen: “The Pursuit of Happyness”

What kind of car do you drive? Mercedes S550

What is your personal dream house? I’m extremely happy with my residence in Dupont Circle, an 1890 brownstone/Victorian. However, nothing compares to my beach house in Wrightsville Beach, N.C., where I plan to establish a homestead for my family for many generations.
