Welcome to my website!  As a Hampton Roads native, I market what I know.  My passion is real estate and helping families find the right community to fit their personal lifestyles.  I pride myself in being a wealth of knowledge about Hampton Roads' neighborhoods and schools. I know how to locate the finest properties and negotiate the best deals. It's my job to know about the latest market conditions, government regulations, and upcoming developments — so that you don't have to.   I look forward to helping you in your real estate journey!

I currently live in the Great Neck area of Virginia Beach.  I grew up in Chesapeake's Great Bridge and Virginia Beach's Kempsville and Chick's Beach areas.  I am a beach girl at heart but wanted to experience city life after college graduation, which drew me to Norfolk's Ghent.  Once married, my husband and I had a California adventure, moving from San Diego to San Francisco, but the hope of starting a family brought us back East and back Home.  We bought and sold properties in Norfolk's Winona/Lafayette Residence Park, as well as Larchmont.  Our growing family, love of the beach, and a search for nationally-ranked public schools brought us to Virginia Beach, where we have settled into Alanton.  We have found Great Neck to be a slice of heaven on earth.  I look forward to helping you find the community that will be your slice!

Buyers' Representation

FINDING THE PERFECT HOME:  As your Buyer's Representative, I can make the process of house hunting much easier and more efficient than if you did it all yourself. I can help you get financing, guide you to local neighborhoods, help you determine your budget, and prioritize a list of essential features that you need in your next home. I'll save you valuable time by finding the properties that best suit your requirements, and will show you only the most promising ones.

NEGOTIATE BEST OFFER:  Once you've found a place that catches your eye, I'll look at comparable properties in the area to help determine a purchase offer. Then I'll negotiate on your behalf with the seller to make sure you get the most favorable terms. It's my job to look after your best interests and take the surprises out of home buying!

A SMOOTH CLOSING:  I will ensure that your closing process goes as smoothly as possible.  I will help you review your home inspection report to make sure you have a solid understanding of the condition of the home and should any repairs be needed, I will help you in finding estimates to complete the work.  I will also work with your lender and title company to make sure the loan and all associated paperwork is completed in a timely manner.  I will aim to make this process as easy on you as possible so that you can focus on getting packed and picking out paint colors.  Nothing can ruin a home buying experience quicker than being bogged down by the details of a closing.

Selling a house on your own can be an overwhelming task. There's advertising to plan and budget for, open houses and private showings to arrange, purchase offers to negotiate, contract contingencies to worry about, and complicated paperwork involved. Make it easy on yourself by putting your home in the hands of a seasoned professional. I have extensive experience marketing properties and showing them to their best advantage. Our corporate culture is built around the success of our clients and I will use every resource at my disposal to ensure that your needs are met.  

HOME PREPERATION AND ADVERTISING:  First, I'll perform a comparable market analysis to determine the most appropriate price for your home. Then I'll provide home staging advice and suggest landscaping changes that will help create curb appeal. I'll advertise your home through a variety of methods, including a unique website for yor home, a Showcase Listing featured on the world's number one search site for homes, Realtor.com, local publications and online MLS listings. I can even showcase your home as part of our site's Featured Listings.

NEGOTIATIONS:  When it comes to negotiating a purchase offer, I'll make sure that you get the best price the market will allow. I'll help you understand contract contingencies and details of the closing process, in addition to handling all the paperwork for you. Essentially, I am here to represent you throughout the entire selling process, and to make sure that your real estate transaction is a positive and profitable experience. 

COMMUNICATION:  One of the number one complaints that Sellers have about Real Estate Agents is a lack of communication.  I will ensure that you are up to speed on the progress of the sale of your home.  I will provide you with a weekly report that will state the number of inquiries received, comments received and any suggestions that I may have.
