Year started: I started in residential sales in 1993, but I have been licensed since 1987.

How did you get started in real estate? I started out in real estate working for a small boutique firm in the District doing marketing for the agents. Then I worked in commercial leasing and property management. I started in 1993 to work full time in residential sales.

How long with the current company? Since 1997

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: I helped a family who are losing their home find a new one.

Area of specialty: Arlington

Highest-priced home sold: $2,265,000 (team sale)

Most memorable house: My first sale was a town home in Fairlington, and I sold it to one of my neighbors who waited for me to get my license.

Worst experience buying or selling a house: This year, working with a family losing their home in a short sale process. It was terrible trying to work with the bank’s slow process and inability to make a decision or respond in a timely fashion to offers on the property. I feel for these people. I have come to know them and their family, and it’s so hard watching people suffer.
