I am a mother of two, born in the DC Metro area and raised in Los Angeles. I entered the Real Estate profession in 2004 after having my Realtor, make the process appear to be so easy and stress free. Over the years, I have witnessed the plethora of shifts in the real estate and mortgage industries, yet my passion remained. In additional to traditional real estate sales, I also have extensive experience in staging, marketing, new home sales, and have a special place in my heart for first time home buyers. I guess it is my nurturing spirit that loves to assist them through this very rewarding experience.
The DC Metropolitan area real estate market has begun to gain momentum and the projections for what the city will have to offer in the years to come are very, very promising. As such, the number of investors and those interested in becoming investors have increased greatly. To accommodate this thriving somewhat new wave of clients, I have garnered an impressive portfolio of lenders, sellers, buyers and contractors to assist those of you that are either savvy or novice to real estate investments.
