Buying and selling homes has always been my passion. Growing up in Cleveland, OH opened my eyes to how revitalizing urban areas can change the makeup of a city.

As a fairly recent transplant, I have found the “fire in my heart” as a PURE real estate broker. I enjoy helping families find homes in the rejuvenated neighborhoods of Belmont, NoDa (The Arts District), Plaza Midwood, Villa Heights and the surrounding neighborhoods. Some of these include Country Club Heights, Plaza Shamrock, Midwood, Oakhurst, Sheffield Park, and Windsor Park.

My background is in sales and advertising, giving me plenty of experience honing my customer service skills and reaching optimum sales goals to be a top ten percent producer throughout my career. After receiving multiple Presidential Achievement awards in print and digital advertising, I wanted to shift my energy towards an industry that I am truly passionate about – residential real estate sales.

The things I love about Charlotte are participating in the many neighborhood events. Some that are just right “down and dirty” like the NoDa’s Greenification Committee. This group gathers together to either clean the streets of NoDa or we put our “waders” on and clean the streams. At the end of the day someone is awarded the “best found piece of trash prize” and receives a gift card to a favorite neighborhood eatery.

My hobbies include enjoying the local live music scene, sailing, and walking my doggies. I am a huge sports enthusiast that also loves music, dancing and the local craft beer scene.

So here I am glad to be in Charlotte, NC fulfilling my dream of becoming a top performing real estate broker as a team member of the PURE Real Estate Team.
