I consider every client interaction to be an opportunity to work hard, accept challenges, and make someone else's life better.
I grew up in rural Alabama hanging out at construction sites with my dad, a homebuilder, and working with my mom, a small business owner. They taught me a lot over the years, but these are the three things that stuck with me the most:
If you’re going to do something, do it right (or don’t do it at all).
If you want something, you have to work for it.
The most positive outcomes always come from the things that scare the hell out of you when you start them.
Those three truths apply to most things in life – but especially to real estate. Not a day goes by that I don’t hear their voices giving me at least one of those valuable tips!
Below, I explain how I turn these principles into actionable guiding principles for how I work with clients.
My goal as an agent is to turn otherwise uncertain and stressful situations into predictable and enjoyable experiences. I do this by incorporating these core values into my work every day:
From creating this website as an educational tool to using modern systems to streamline your real estate transaction, I am forward-thinking and tech-savvy.
Whatever I know, my clients know. I want you to have all the information you need to make the best real estate decisions for you.
I anticipate challenges before they arise and proactively brainstorm contingency plans to keep transactions running as smoothly as possible.
My role in your real estate transaction is mostly that of a project and people manager. By collaborating with all parties involved and actively maintaining communication, we achieve the greatest outcomes.
In addition to my decade-plus experience in real estate, I am supported by a brokerage of more than 30 other agents with various specialties and interests. If I don’t know the answer to a question, I know someone who does.
Asheville’s fast-moving and quickly changing real estate market requires an agent who can think on her feet and change directions when needed. I am always thinking outside the box to meet my clients’ needs.
After spending 20 years living in Colorado, Utah and Oregon, I longed to be back in the South near family, friends, and fireflies. So in March of 2021, I moved to East Asheville with my four kiddos and never looked back. We chose Asheville for the fantastic weather (hello, thunderstorms!), the laid-back vibe, abundant dining and entertainment options, and abundant outdoor recreational opportunities.
I received a B.A. in mass communication from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) in 1998 and an M.S. in advertising management from the University of Denver in 2005. Pre-real-estate, I worked in various marketing capacities from account executive to a large advertising agency to marketing director at a small ski resort in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
I first became licensed as a real estate agent in 2009 at the height the housing crisis. Since then, I’ve been licensed in four states and have managed every kind of residential transaction from single-family homes to commercially financed apartment buildings. I have also acquired numerous investment properties including a short-term vacation rental in downtown Asheville.
My hands are quite full with four kiddos and a busy career in real estate, but I enjoy sewing, knitting, and photography in my (very little) spare time.
