Having lived and traveled extensively throughout Europe and Asia in my youth and spending more than a decade in LA’s entertainment industry, I have learned to appreciate the special lifestyle we enjoy here in Virginia’s Piedmont.
A search for quality of life and a healthy place to raise a family lead me to Charlottesville from Los Angeles in 1983. With horses, rivers, mountains, and country living, this area was a perfect choice.
My involvement in Charlottesville area real estate began in 1989 when I became a licensed Realtor. Beginning in 1998 I served as Director of Education for the Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors for three years.
My real estate career began with residential properties in the area until I decided that I most enjoyed selling country estate properties. With a deep appreciation and passion for equestrian and country properties, I specialize in Charlottesville country properties, Charlottesville country estates, Charlottesville land, and Charlottesville equestrian properties. I invest 100% delivering first class service to my customers and clients and I have developed a strong loyalty, as seen in my referral business. Personal service and experience are the cornerstones of my business. I am successful at negotiating good prices for buyers and getting top dollar for my seller clients. I am well respected for my business sense, marketing savvy, and experience.
In addition to real estate interests, I am an accomplished equestrian and an instructor of Pa Kua Chi Kung. I am also a past committee member and volunteer for the Charlottesville Venture Group, an organization that brings education and networking opportunities to the entrepreneur. My background includes work as a Pyschometrian in clinical trials at UVA and work as Director of Sales and Marketing in the senior living industry. I travel abroad when I have the time - with family in Ireland, I try to visit once a year.
If you have thoughts of selling your property, I am happy to prepare a market analysis of your home at no cost to you. I welcome the opportunity to meet you and share with you the exceptional customer service that makes me different from other Realtors.
If you plan to be explore Charlottesville in the near future, do not be surprised if you find yourself planning to buy a country home, farm, or estate. It is just part of the magic of Charlottesville. I look forward to meeting and working with you.
