Year started: 1994

How did you get started in real estate? I sold a family electronic-security firm in 1992 to Honeywell and was looking for my next adventure. A friend (and Realtor) suggested I go into real estate.

How long have you been with the current company? Six years

Licenses and designations: licensed Realtor, District, Maryland and Virginia; graduate, Realtor Institute

Awards: 2008 Business Person of the Year, Potomac Chamber of Commerce; Long & Foster’s Chairman’s Hall of Fame; Long & Foster’s Top 100

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: My son (and last child) went off to college this past fall to his first choice, University of Dayton.

What is your area of specialty? I specialize in properties in Bethesda, Potomac, Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, Kensington, Northwest and Northern Virginia. (I know that’s a big area, but I am a seventh-generation Washingtonian with six brothers and sisters!)

Highest-priced home sold: $2,250,000

Most memorable house: There hasn’t been really just one memorable house since I have sold hundreds. Each transaction is unique in so many ways. There have been some absolutely lovely homes I have sold, and others not-so-lovely where I have really had to be on my game!

Worst experience buying or selling a house: The worst experience was buying my own home before I was an agent, so I am very sympathetic to my buyers for the anxiety they feel. I am very detailed, making sure to cross every ‘t’ and dot every ‘i’ to make sure they don’t have the same experience I did.

Age: 49 (for a few more weeks!)

Family: I have a patient husband, Kirk; daughter, Jessica, who is licensed in the District and Maryland and works with me; and son, Austin, who is a freshman at University of Dayton.

Education: Walt Whitman High School, attended University of Maryland

Community affiliations/community service: I am a current board member and past president of the D.C. Kiwanis Club and Potomac Chamber of Commerce.

Last book read: Currently on my nightstand: “Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity” by David Allen. (I know it sounds boring, but I am in a business book club, and it motivates me!)

Last movie seen: “The Duchess”

What kind of car do you drive? Lexus sedan (I don’t know the number because I’m not really a car person)

Describe your personal dream house: My dream house is on the beach.
