How did you get started in real estate? After building my first home in 1980, I wanted to get involved in real estate.

How long with the current company? 2 1/2 years

Associations: Dulles Area Association of Realtors

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: I sold all my paintings at an art show.

Area of specialty: I am an experienced foreclosure and REO (real estate owned) agent and have worked with numerous first-time homebuyers.

Highest-priced home sold: $700,000

Most memorable house: I was hired by a bank to sell a town house. When I went to the home for the first time, I discovered someone was living there, even though there was no electricity or gas service. I was able to convince the homeowner to accept a “cash for keys” deal. This homeowner, who had lost his job and his home, left the place in absolutely immaculate condition. It was a very sad situation, but the cash was what he wanted and needed at that point in time.

Worst experience buying or selling a house: The worst involved a property in California where the buyer decided three weeks into the transaction that she no longer wanted to buy the house.

Describe your personal dream house: My current home is pretty close. It’s a comfortable Colonial-style home on 3 1/2 acres in the pretty Virginia countryside - but to make it perfect, I would add a water view.
