I grew up in a suburb of Cleveland with a childhood not much different than the kids of Sandlot, a hometown neighborhood with a great sense of community. I moved to Athens to attend Ohio University and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology/Criminology. During my senior year, I began working at a local non-profit that serves adults coping with mental illness. Over the past six years there, I’ve helped many members of the community find stable housing. Working for a grassroots organization with only 3 full-time employees and more than 150 members a year, I’ve perfected the art of multi-tasking, problem solving, and meeting deadlines during times of stress and chaos.
Many times I am asked, “Why real estate”? The answer is simple, for the adventure. I love to see someone make a house a home. Hundreds, maybe thousands of houses are identical but no two homes are the same; just as no two people are alike. So every day is an adventure, working with unique people who will take a house and make it their home.
I enjoy the treasure hunt and helping people find what they are looking for, even if they don’t know what that is yet. I listen to what their dreams are and help them translate that into acquiring a great home where they can create and share memories. When life changes, I want to be there to help and I will always give 110%. Whether it’s relocating or wanting to upsize or downsize, I can make that process a positive experience. Over the last five years, I’ve also helped landlords with their investment properties. If income properties are more your idea of the perfect real estate, I have unique knowledge and perspective. I get right to the issues at hand: income potential.
When I am not working on real estate I enjoy kayaking on the Hocking river, organic vegetable gardening, playing soccer with the Athens Community Soccer League, skiing and being a member of the Jackie O’s Taproom dart league.
