I was raised on 23 acres of woods and fields, east of Hawley in Lackawaxen Township/Pike County. I loved being outdoors, especially in the woods.
Like my daughter in the picture, I spent a lot time fishing in our pond using different techniques learned from Dad to "land the big ones."
This helped develop my professional outlook as well: use everything at your disposal and then, find more to use...and always be ready to try something different!
A graduate of Wallenpaupack High School, I started working right away first as a cashier in a local supermarket. Evenutally I was promoted to Assistant Head Cashier, and finally, I got into the technology side once the store introduced scanners and computer-controlled pricing.
A passion for photography led me to work for of the area's leading professional photographers, first as a receptionist & one-hour film lab tech, and eventually a free-lance photographer. This photography background has helped me in both web design and real estate.
In March of 1995 I married and eventually left the workforce to stay home with our three children while they were young. During that time at home, I built a successful web & graphic design business from scratch and worked from home creating websites and designing ads for various businesses, including local real estate agents.
While building these websites for agents, I decided to become an agent myself and began a career in real estate.
Once the children were settled in school, I completed my real estate education and obtained my license. I have completed REALTOR Ethics Training Courses, Fast Track Training, and many real estate courses from my previous brokerage; the training never stops, though...there is always something more to learn, something new to master.
I am proud to work with Davis R. Chant REALTORS, the top brokerage in Wayne & Pike County, and I enjoy every minute of my real estate career. Utilizing the skills I have learned and perfected - from basic customer service & courtesy, to computer technology and Internet skills, and even photography - I strive to provide excellent service and build relationships along the way.
