My interest in houses – from interiors and exteriors to the excitement of buying and selling – began around the age of 12 when my parents purchased a new home. I LOVED going with them to look at homes and had no problems telling them which home I thought was the best and why! I’ll never forget the day my parent’s offer was accepted. It was an intense hour early one Saturday morning with a couple of rounds of counter-offers that had all of us on pins and needles. When the offer was finally accepted, my brother and I, in true pre-teen fashion, began running around and jumping on the beds like we’d lost all sense! It felt as though we’d just won a major victory in an intense battle of the wills. And the next best part of getting a new home? We got to decorate it!! (Well, my mom got to decorate it and I helped!)
My passion for new homes and interiors continued throughout college and into my adult life. During college and for several years after college, I moved almost every year. Although I dreaded the packing and unpacking, the excitement of moving to a new place never wore off! While in college I earned a BS degree in Interior Design. For a couple of years after graduating I worked in a flooring, paint, and wallpaper store before starting my own design business.
Over the years, starting a career in real estate crossed my mind a few times, but it seemed so financially risky that I pushed the thoughts aside. Instead I continued dabbling in Interior Design while also working as the Manager of Operations for a training company in the Pharmaceutical industry. It wasn’t until I had a conversation with two different people within a week of one another about Real Estate that I finally felt led to get my license… proof that no matter your path, you will eventually end up doing what you’re destined to do! And how lucky am I that both of my passions go hand-in-hand?
As your REALTOR, not only can I provide expertise as an Interior Designer, I will also be your advocate. In addition to being exciting, buying and selling a home can be a very stressful and uncertain time. As your REALTOR, I will do everything in my power to make the process as seamless as possible. I will keep you informed along the way and answer any questions you have. If you’re selling your home, I will make suggestions that will help showcase your home in the most aesthetically pleasing way possible, which improves the chances of a faster sell. I will also do my best to make sure you get the fairest price for your home. If you’re buying a home, I will do my best to find a home that meets all of your criteria within your budget. And, if your budget allows, I would love nothing more than to help you design it!
It would be my pleasure to help you sell your home and/or help you with the purchase of a new one. Please give me a call or send me an email to schedule a time to meet and discuss your needs! I look forward to hearing from you!
