Year started: 1983

How did you get started in real estate? My mother, Alice Moore of Realty Executives in Bowie, encouraged me to take a real estate course. Soon afterward, the Washington area Coldwell Banker company advertised real estate sales positions in its Sears Financial Network offices. I applied and was accepted, so I went to training with 17 other agents. Thanks, Mom!

How long have you been with the current company? Since 2007, as a selling associate broker; I was a managing broker for Long & Foster from 1994 to 1997 and returned to the company in 2007.

Licenses and designaions: Associate broker, licensed in Virginia; Accredited Buyer Representative; member, Council of Real Estate Brokerage Managers; Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist and member, Million Dollar Guild

Associations: Dulles Area Association of Realtors (DAAR)

Awards: Top Individual Producer, DAAR, in 2006 (the last year the organization recognized sales volume as an award category); Top Producer for Long & Foster in Loudoun County, 2007; Office Top Producer, Top 10 Producers in Long & Foster Virginia/West Virginia Region, 2008

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: I was elected to the board of directors of the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce. This was accomplished because of my continuous efforts to promote and assist the business community in Loudoun County to grow their businesses in difficult economic times.

Area of specialty: Residential properties in Loudoun and Fairfax counties; I closed 68 transactions in 2008 in an average of 35 days (compared to a market average of more than 100 days).

Highest-priced home sold: $1,675,000

Most memorable house: It is a three-level solid stone home built by Quakers in 1780 and was lovingly restored and updated by the owner. She and her husband lived in Arlington with their six children and purchased the 12.7 acre property in the 1970s as a weekend home. The stories she told me about the summers they spent there were precious.

Describe your worst experience buying or selling a house: Fortunately, I have a short memory when it comes to negative experiences. I find that people who dwell on those aspects of the business tend not to sell homes in high volume.

Age: 54

Family: Dave Jones, my husband and partner

Pets: The frogs in the pool

Education: No college degree, although I have attended classes at Northern Virginia Community College, Prince George’s Community College and George Mason University

Community affiliations/outside interests: Women in Business Alliance committee, Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce; Oatlands Historic Home and Gardens; the Mike Ferry Organization

Last book read: “Who Moved My Cheese?” by Spencer Johnson

Last movie seen: “The Hangover”

What kind of car do you drive? Mercedes-Benz CLS 500

Describe your personal dream house: The home where I live is on 2.4 acres with a two-story center-hall foyer and family room, a chandelier that looks like fireworks, a mirrored dance room with a disco ball, a media room with pool table, and a swimming pool and spa.
