I am a true Hampton Roads local. My father served in the U.S. Navy, I was born at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth and I have lived in the Hampton Roads area my whole life.
My passion for real estate started when I wanted to learn how to buy investment properties. When I purchased my first house I had zero experience and took a similar approach as the general public; I tried to avoid agents. I had the misconception that real estate agents were only out to sell you a product without really caring about your needs as an individual or a family. After purchasing my first house without an agent I quickly learned that shopping without professional help was foolish. I had no representation, no one to help explain things to me or look out for my best interest. I wanted to spare others the same unpleasant experience that had left such a bad taste in my mouth, so I studied to get my real estate license. My sister and father are in real estate and I studied their successes (and failures) to help me grow as quickly as I could in the business without losing any important lessons along the way.
I absolutely love working with people and answering their questions. I'm incredibly patient and love explaining everything in accurate, but great detail. There are no words to describe how great it feels when I have matched a family with their dream home. Before I became a real estate agent I worked as an IT help desk technician and network engineer. I was really a professional researcher in these jobs. After I studied for my license and started working in real estate I quickly realized the similarities between these two fields. My job as a real estate professional is to thoroughly know, understand and communicate this constantly changing industry to each and every client. Let me put my experience to use helping you with your next home purchase.
