Buying? Selling? Investing? I Have You Covered
When I was a little girl growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for fun my parents would take me and my sister to open houses in better neighborhoods than ours, and we would run through the homes, imagining what it would be like to have our own bathroom, or even our own bedroom, a garage, etc. It was so much fun to see how other people lived and how different each home was.
I have loved real estate and house hunting ever since. And I've been fortunate to turn my passion into my career.
I Started My Real Estate Career Flipping Houses
My first real estate investment was my childhood home in Milwaukee at age 24. I purchased the home from my parents, made some renovations, and then sold the home to an excited first-time home buyer for a $50,000 profit. This allowed me to buy 2 other investment properties in Milwaukee and Kenosha which I renovated and/or rented out.
I also owned 2 homes of my own in Wisconsin, including 1 duplex (which I renovated and had a tenant in the upper unit), and 2 new construction homes here in North Carolina.
After Moving to Clayton, I Fell in Love with the Triangle
My husband and I moved to Flowers Plantation in Clayton in 2008 and we have sworn we will never move back to the Midwest! We are head over heels in love with North Carolina – so much so that we got married in Nags Head, Outer Banks on the sound.
After 10 years living in Clayton and working in the Triangle, we have watched this area grow and change so much as thousands of people move here every year from other parts of the world.
As a Business Owner, I Became a Networking Guru
After working at a pharmaceutical company for 12 years, I made the leap into entrepreneurship.
I have owned several successful businesses, including a full-service salon and spa in Fuquay Varina, NC, which I owned and operated full time. We eventually had 10 employees and over 1,000 clients in the book, grossing $500,000+ annually in sales before we sold the salon in 2014.
I have also been a Certified Nutrition Coach and CrossFit Trainer, and I had the privilege of helping hundreds of clients all over the country with their health and fitness goals.
Through these ventures, I became a networking and branding expert, utilizing my marketing skills and social media to build an expansive sphere of influence all over the Triangle.
As a REALTOR®, I Make My Clients' Dreams Come True
Eventually, my passion for real estate could not be suppressed any longer, and I was fortunate enough to be invited to join the Veneta Ford Group of Fonville Morisey.
As a full-time REALTOR®, I have helped so many people make their dreams come true, from first-time home buyers, to people wanting to sell their large home and downsize to a low-maintenance townhome, to investors looking to flip properties, to people selling land they've been holding on to for decades.
I consider myself to be a listing marketing expert, having taken over many stale listings from frustrated sellers, making key marketing tweaks, and selling these properties in record time.
My Family and Community Mean the World to Me
Along with helping my clients achieve their real estate goals, I enjoy staying very active in my community and spending time with my family.
I volunteer regularly to help with Clayton Chamber of Commerce functions all year long. I am also a founding member and currently the Vice President of Clayton Women In Networking, Vice Chair of the Raleigh Regional Association of REALTORS® Young Professionals Network, and a member of the Clayton Chamber of Commerce Education Committee.
My husband Paul and I have three fur baby dogs, Brady, Sylvester, and Jackson, and we love to travel, watch movies, and spend time outside with our friends and dogs.
