In 2006 I made the move from Texas to Roanoke. Many years prior to moving here, while visiting, I fell in love with the area and the old charm and nostalgic feel of the Roanoke Valley. I love the quaint charm of the homes and buildings, and with my business development background, moving into Real Estate makes perfect sense for me! Growing up in Texas in the family business, I learned from my father, the importance of putting your client first, and conducting business in a highly honest, ethical manner. I hope to develop a lasting relationship and earn your trust and confidence while helping you on your journey to finding your perfect home.
My Real Estate Career began in 1997. I made many great friends with this career. Health issues with close family members caused me to realize I couldn’t give my full attention every direction. I took a sabbatical to give needed care. NOW, I’m back full time as the Realtor® that I thoroughly enjoy. Please remember, YOUR Real Estate needs are my main focus.
This area has been my home since I was a teenager (grew up in Covington, VA) moved here to go to business school 4 days after graduation from high school.
Skilled in Real Estate Negotiations, active in my church, Business and Professional Groups, Chamber of Commerce…all of that may lead to buyers for your property.
My husband is a well-known, Class A Building Contractor & has taught me much about properties.
My friends & previous clients will agree to my work ethic. I Love satisfied clients! I look forward to adding YOU to the list!

For all the awards and honors I have received in the real estate industry, it is still about helping my client purchase or sell their home to start their future life story.

I started my real estate career in 1986 when we moved to Richmond, VA. Prior to then, I transferred around the country with 84 Lumber, Lowes, and F. A. Kohler. I have first-hand knowledge of what is it like to move from one area of the country to another. In 2015 we decided to move to the Roanoke, VA area so we could be between our daughters and their families in Richmond VA and Boone NC. My Bride and I enjoy outdoor activities from hiking the mountains and the Appalachian Trail to kayaking the lakes, and rivers and playing golf at the local mountain courses.
As a graduate of Liberty University, with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and a concentration in Digital Marketing and Advertising, I am able to understand the importance of utilizing the everyday changes and advances in marketing, and how those changes impact the personal and professional transactions we make on a daily basis. I hope to use my connections & education as a means of creating and maintaining successful relationships with my current and future clients.

To find your home, you need someone who knows the area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter- not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home. To sell a home when it is time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show it to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, over-see all of the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close. Consult with me on home selling tactics. Oftentimes buyers don’t visualize living in your home the way that you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience – which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that has sold fast!
