My business: While my real estate background spans back almost 14 years, I rejoined CBLOR two and half years ago following the births of my three children. I specialize in helping people buy and sell homes throughout the Lake Oconee area including both gated and non-gated homes and communities. In just two years back with Coldwell Banker I’ve assisted clients with almost $9 million in buying and selling transactions. It is truly the most rewarding feeling ever.

My mission: It sounds cliche but my main mission in this business is to make sure people enjoy themselves throughout the process. It can be a very stressful time and I try and be respectful of that when dealing with a Buyer or Seller. All the while encouraging them to have fun, which for me, stands for F-or sale, U-nder contract, N-ow whose home is next?!

My strengths: My biggest strength lies in the fact that I have never met a stranger. I will talk to anyone regardless of their situation. I have a hard time hiding who I truly am, or my sense of humor, and I’m not the least bit ashamed of it. Working with me, what you see is what you get. My main goal is to have a good time and make sure everyone around me does as well. How have you risen to the challenges of COVID-19: The Covid-19 pandemic has been a tough one for my family. My husband, Drew, owns a large scale event production company. Overnight his business was devastated as clients canceled and postponed events. It’s been a tough thing to watch first-hand. My real estate career was never a hobby but it became absolutely essential to help rebuild all that we lost. I picked up my phone and never put it down.

Lessons you learned from the pandemic: The pandemic has taught me the importance of being humble, yet confident. When you’re put in a situation to step up, you do it because you may never have another chance. We have a sticker above our front door at home. “Never Give Up.” I see it every time I leave the house and it reminds me to rise above this new normal and push myself and my family to the next level.
