When you work with me, you will find that attention to detail is one of my biggest strengths. I strongly believe in the "Golden Rule" of treating others as I would like to be treated. I first fell in love with Northern Virginia when my spouse was stationed here with the Air Force over a decade ago. During that time, I have raised three children, contributed to the local community, and became passionate in helping others with their major life changing events - buying and selling their home.
