My Real Estate Story
I became a licensed REALTOR in 2000. We were stationed in Hawaii, with the United States Marine Corps, and both of our children had started school. It was time for me to find a career! I have always been passionate about real estate and let me tell you, Hawaii, especially the Island of Oahu, has some magnificent properties. I went to work for Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties and won the coveted Aloha A'ina "Rookie of the Year" award. I also earned my Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) Designation. I specialized in Waterfront Homes, Public Access Shoreline Hawaii, 1031 Tax Deferred Exchanges, Lease Hold and Fee Simple Ownership, Condominiums, Co-op's and Residential Real Estate.
In 2002 we had a Permanent Change of Station (PCS) move to Belleville, Illinois, where my husband was attached to United States Transportation Command at Scott Air Force Base. I went to work with Coldwell Banker Nester Realty where I specialized in Historic Homes and Residential real estate. I was involved in our local board and was appointed as Chair for the Grievance Committee. I was also on the board of directors for the Bellville Historic Society.
2005 Found us moving overseas to Okinawa, Japan. I am very well versed in PCS moves nationally and internationally and know what it takes to help your clients feel at ease in the process. While in Okinawa, I held First Time Home Buyer Seminars and referred families to agents in all parts of the United States when it was time for them to move on.
2008 Brought us back to the states and our home, Virginia Beach, Virginia! Though I was born in Laguna Beach, California, and grew up in Tustin, I went to Kemps Landing Middle School, Kempsville Junior High and Kempsville High School, right here in Virginia Beach. My husband was stationed at the Naval Safety Center and retired from the USMC in 2011 after 26 years! During this time I earned the Military Market Specialist (MMS) and the Shortsale and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) Designation in 2008. The Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) Designation and my Brokers License in 2009. The Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), the Accredited Staging Professional (ASP) and because the market had really turned, the Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) Designations in 2010. I specialized in Short Sales until 2012 when my husband and I left our adult kids in our home and went back to Okinawa, Japan, for three years. We made it back to Virginia Beach in April of 2015 and we are happy to be home. I work for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Towne Realty and I specialize in Residential Real Estate and I have created a niche market Representing out of State/Country Home Sellers.
