I am a wife and Mother of 3. My children are currently ages 8, 11 and 17! I have been blessed to lead an amazing real estate team that has grown to over 25 agents and admin. We specialize in residential real estate. During the last several years we have become quite accustomed and learned the ropes of the local REO, short sale and HUD proceedings that are necessary in our market. Our team truly makes our clients an extension of our family and whether they are needing to buy, sell or rent; we are only interested in making their dreams come true.
We have grown to expand into other markets including Dallas, TX; Syracuse, NY; and Birmingham, AL.
