I live in and love Clayton North Carolina! I am married to a former Marine and have 3 children and a very special step daughter. After raising my special needs son (he has double cochlear implants), I adopted 2 siblings, one of which is also special needs. Having and raising special needs children can seem a daunting task, but the benefits I receive are priceless. I have learned infinite patience and how to think outside of the norm.
I am originally from Chicago and knew early on that I would need a warmer place to call home. Before becoming a Realtor, I was a Health Physics Technician in the Nuclear Generation Field for eleven years. In this position I had the opportunity to travel the US and have seen and lived in 49 states. My travels have given me a unique perspective of where people looking to relocate to North Carolina are coming from and what they are leaving behind. I know their market and what they may be expecting, the reality of what we have to offer, and the ability to manage those expectations. During our travels we settled for a short time in Florida where I became a Realtor. After 3 years we were transferred to Raleigh (my husband was still in Nuclear Generation) where I returned to school and received my broker’s license in NC. I have been a broker here for the past 19 years specializing in residential sales, new construction and land. I hold the SFR (Short Sales, Foreclosures, REO’s) designation. I am also a certified stager with a background in construction. With these certifications I feel I can give my clients an edge on the market.
In my spare time I teach beginning line dancing, shag and East Coast Swing 5 nights each week, and I love to make jewelry and greeting cards.
