Highest-priced home sold: $2,300,000

Most memorable house: I would say that the most memorable home I have had the pleasure of selling was a $2,300,000 home in Clifton. It was truly a nontraditional style home with lots of class, a beautiful entry gate, an outstanding chef’s kitchen and an unbelievable garage. This transaction itself was not unlike many others we handle, because both buyer and seller where happy at the end of the day!

Worst experience buying or selling a house: It actually was buying my own home during the holidays. I realized in that transaction that I had absolutely no control over the people who were putting my loan together, especially at a time of year when the lender was short staffed. This experience helped me to assist my clients even more. I learned that you always need a Plan A and Plan B, and sometimes even a Plan C. I did finally close on Dec. 31!
