A former educator with a degree in Middle School instruction, I taught for several years before going full steam into Real Estate. Since then, I have helped hundreds of buyers and sellers in the Charleston WV Real Estate and Huntington Real Estate Market reach their ultimate goal-leaving the settlement table happy!
I am, and will continue to be successful, for I remember how to be a personable person and to give straight answers. I can honestly say that my style as a Realtor in South Charleston or Huntington area is slightly unorthodox in comparison to others. My goal is not to make money, my goal is to help people. Just as in education, I was not in it for the money, I was in it to help. Just as I got joy from helping a child figure something out, I find joy in helping someone buy or sell a home. To me, this is a new turning point in one's life and I'm glad I can be here to make that turn as easy and as enjoyable as possible. I am a firm believer that "what goes around comes around". Putting ones needs in the forefront will come back to me in the end and we will all reap the benefits of good business.
Isaac Newton says, "If I have seen farther than others, it is because I was standing on the shoulder of giants.
I specialize in people. I feel that specializing in only one aspect of the Real Estate market will eventually make one less ripe and less informed of other transactions that go on in Real Estate. Therefore, having a broad vision of the whole field, instead of one certain chunk, makes me more keen to keeping you informed and happy. Whether it's Short Sales, Foreclosures or you're Relocating to the area - I am a jack of all trades!

WHAT A COMPLIMENT!
Random things About Me (In no particular order)I have helped build homes and also remodel homes as a hobby. Having an agent that knows construction is always a valuable tool! I love live music (All types, festivals, plays, even certain musicals) Love to read but due to being in my car most of my life, I've taken a liking to audio books. (My favorites as of late have been: "Blink, Thinking about Thinking" and "The Last Lecture"). I would read/listen to anything from Sci-Fi to Journals of the Civil War so my tastes are broad. Our brains are sponges so why not absorb as much as we can? I love sports (I graduated from Marshall University but I am a born WVU fan. I do root for both unless they play one another) Football season is the most wonderful time of the year! I like most art work (It's great to see how people express themselves and then you translate their work into your feelings) I love world travel and absorbing other cultures. City-life or the slow pace of the country, a mix is good! I'm a clown. It's my nature to be quick-witted and strive to put a smile on a strangers face. "Be kind for you never know who is fighting a tough battle" I love to work out (FOR MY MIND) I used to do nothing but lift weights but I am slowly mixing in cardio and yoga (See the Insanity Workout Program) I always strive to better myself professionally, personally and spiritually (I am grateful for God and all that his blessings) I am the youngest with 2 older sisters (one of which is also a Realtor) I love to camp and fish when I can and need to find more time to do so. Life's a playground, make the most of it
