Founder, ECO-BROKER, C.I.P.S., GRI, CRS
I believe that the greatest compliment I can receive is a referral from a client and from colleagues around the world. I work hard to receive that recognition. As a matter of fact, the majority of my business is from referrals from satisfied clients and repeat clients – with whom I cultivate lifelong relationships and friendships. I believe in education. It is vital both for me and for my clients. My designations demonstrate my joy of learning. Protecting the environment (Eco-broker) and understanding the global markets (Certified International Property Specialist) have made my career in real estate even more fascinating and far reaching. I also hold a M.A and an Ed.M from Columbia University. My special interests lie in finding and creating places for people to live whether finding a resale home, a villa in Italy, or creating an entire new neighborhood. In developing sustainable neighborhoods, it is important to create an environment where people can enjoy life to the fullest, where energy abounds and where quality and value prevail. I have been privileged and honored to receive recognition, such as REALTOR of the Year, Citizen of the Year from the Chamber of Commerce, the Citizenship Award from NC Association of REALTORS, WCHL’s Hometown Hero, the Straley Peace and Justice Award and Associates Award
from the HBA.
Focused On You
You’ll find that I will focus on you and listen to what you say. I’ll pay attention to your wish list and do what I can to make your wishes come true. I am easy to talk with, credible, and more interested in you than in making the sale. If you are ready to talk with me, just give me a call or write me a note. I look forward to hearing from you.
Philosophy Transcends Photography
As an avid photographer, I embrace the philosophy of photographer, Harry Callahan, who believes that “it is the subject that counts.” His awareness of his subject, his precision, dedication and devotion have earned him the respect of the artistic community. Callahan’s values and practices can be applied to the real estate business too. It all begins with my having a genuine interest in my clients, focusing on their needs and objectives. I focus not only on finding just the right home, but also on the many ways to finance the property. I also determine the importance of location vis a vis commuting, and what the energy levels surrounding the property appear to be. My goal is to build lifelong relationships with my clients by providing unparalleled service, education and advice.
