I love real estate, plain and simple. I genuinely believe that one of the best jobs in the world is having the opportunity to help others with buying, selling or renting properties. A true Maryland native, I was born and raised in Prince George’s County, Maryland, and have lived in the Southern Maryland area all my life. I currently live by National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland, and enjoy seeing firsthand all the exciting changes coming to Prince George’s County and the entire DMV region!
After graduating from the University of Maryland, College Park with a B.S. in Criminology, I soon realized that my passion lay not in the criminal justice field, but in buying and selling real estate, and most importantly, being in business for myself. I love the freedom and flexibility that comes with being self-employed, which also allows me to be available when my clients need me the most – after work, during the evenings, on the weekends, or any time in between.
In many ways, I was destined for a career in Real Estate. Growing up, I can often remember accompanying my parents to help tackle the seemingly endless list of “to-dos” at one of their rental homes. As a result, I learned about the value of hard work and basic homeownership skills, lessons that have served me well in my chosen profession, and as a homeowner myself. I learned about treating people with respect and honoring your word. And, in what I now see as the final tipping point in my decision to dive into Real Estate full-time, I realized that my sharp investigative and analytic skills could be a valuable tool in staying one step ahead of the ever changing market. In 2003, as the “bubble” was just starting to inflate in the DC area, I saw what was likely to happen and, despite his understandable hesitation, I insisted that my father purchase another investment property. As a new college graduate with little money in reserves, I had nothing solid to go on besides a Black Belt in Tang Soo Do and the gut feeling that the timing was right. In less than 3 years, the home sold for more than double the initial purchase price. I knew it was time to hit the ground running and I haven’t looked back since!
Driven. Dedicated. Dependable. That’s who I am, and that’s the type of REALTOR® you will have when you allow me to assist you with your real estate needs.
