What I enjoy most about real estate is that people make big decisions and I help them make the right ones. I feel a strong connection to my clients, therefore my team and I are willing to work tirelessly to assure their satisfaction. This dedication to our clients and their continued referrals and repeat business has put me in the top 10% of the 3,500+ Realtors in the greater Charleston area. Most recently I completed an inaugural class of the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors Leadership Development Program. I was chosen as one of 15 area Realtors to participate in this program.
My real estate business model is geared towards working by referral. This means my team and I are dedicated to providing outstanding customer service….we are in the business of making lifelong clients and friends.
