How did you get started in real estate? I spent my earlier years out of college doing marketing and communications on government contracts, and after more than five years, I was burned out from all the uphill battles I had to face trying to get my target audiences to accept and acclimate to the new products we were introducing. Loving the concept of my work and being uber-organized, I decided to explore other career options that would blend marketing, working closely with clients and having a “product” that people actually wanted - and I loved houses - so real estate it was to be!

How long with the current company? Since October 2007

Awards: NVAR Multimillion Dollar Sales

Greatest accomplishment in the past 12 months: Surpassing my dollar volume of sales for 2010

Area of specialty: Logan/Dupont/U Street

Highest-priced home sold: $1,600,000

Most memorable house: A home on Lake Barcroft in Falls Church, Va., an ultramodern, 5,000-square-foot home on the lake where we held art shows and various events to promote the home

Worst experience buying or selling a house: There have only been a few, thankfully. The most challenging would have been working with clients to sell their home and not being able to convince them that the home was overpriced - even after having two solid offers come in around my original pricing recommendation. Then, once the listing expired, they listed with another agent, pricing it where I originally recommended, and sold it within two weeks. It was frustrating more than anything; if only they had taken my advice from the beginning.
