What is your area of specialty? Goshen Estates in Gaithersburg

Highest-priced home sold: Just less than $1 million

Most memorable house: I enjoyed getting a house for a friend with whom I used to work. She has two little boys and wanted a backyard for them to play in. It was her dream house. It made me very happy to see her family get this house.

Worst experience buying or selling a house: Having a friend of mine waiting on pins and needles to see if the sale of her mother’s house would go through pending financing. It didn’t help that we had to deal with a difficult lender.

Describe your personal dream house: A rambler with four bedrooms, an updated kitchen, mudroom, huge deck with a screened-in a gazebo and property that backs up to trees. It also would have a two-car garage and be on a cul-de-sac.
