About the Broker

My passion has always been event planning, coordinating, and catering.  I love to make people happy and give back to my community.  I've been in real estate for 18 years; it was an easy transition for me.  A good friend who owned a mortgage company said I'd make a good agent and told me, if you get your real estate license I'll open up a company, so that's just what I did.  I've had some great mentors. Those who believed in me gave me the confidence to go out and do it.  You have to know your craft in order to be confident.  My mentor taught me to fish.  He taught me to be able to go out and find the answer.  That enabled me to have the confidence to go out and be myself.  I strive to learn every day.  I try to "be all I can be without going to the military!"  Patience is one of my best qualities and to be able to look at things from different prospectives.  This, I believe helps me to connect with my customers.  I know that I am partnering with my customers on one of the biggest decisions, and investments of their life so I understand the importance of helping each client get what they need.  I help get my clients excited and make them comfortable and, I treat ALL my clients as if they are my only client.

About the Logo

SoRealty came about when I was trying to come up with a name for my company, I was talking with a colleague and  I remember saying, "I just want it to be so real."  That's how I came up with SoRealty.  That really sums me up ~ so professional, so caring, so real.
