I was born and raised in West Baltimore. My family moved to Howard County in 1966 and I have been a resident since that time. My wonderful husband, Bob, and I have three children: Brandon, Kristin and Ryan and have four grandchildren, Madison, Braeden, Ava and Wesley. My hobbies include reading, walking and spending time at the beach with my family. I think the best part of being a Realtor is that my work touches people’s lives in a very profound way. Nothing pleases me more than to see a client’s face light up when I help him or her purchase or sell their home. I attribute the success of my business to the relationships that I have established throughout the years. I have a varied background which I feel is a great benefit to my clients. For instance, having worked in the construction industry, I am able to help my clients in the construction of new homes as well as give good sound advice on additions or upgrades they might make on their existing homes. In addition, my experiences at the Howard County Planning and Zoning increased my knowledge of development and construction in Howard County. My clients benefit from my knowledge of the entire Baltimore Metro area.
