Hello!

 

Born and raised in Georgia, I grew up in a small town just north of the Florida line (Valdosta, GA). Now living in the Jackson County area, Georgia is definitely where I call "home".

 

Since I was little, I have always known real estate was my passion!  I would get the little real estate magazines out of the boxes in front of the grocery store and circle my favorite dream homes.

 

I believe the love for real estate came from my family roots.  My grandmother, now retired, was an active Realtor for over 35 years. I remember one afternoon, (actually, it was Christmas day), and while she was cooking dinner, her home phone rang, and it was a client in town wanting to see a house. She asked me if I wanted to go show a house with her, and without any hesitation, I jumped in the car ready to see her in action. I remember that day like it was yesterday, as I was watching her and her clients smile and laugh while they were walking through the house, I remember thinking to myself, "THIS is what I want to do"!  I want to be able to make people smile and bring them joy by helping them find their home!

 

In 2005, I moved to the Gwinnett County area, and a few short months later received my real estate license. I hit the ground running, and God sure provided, I peaked at the Million Dollar Club my first year building my knowledge very quick! Over the years, and with some downtime in real estate, I have completed over 75+ buying & selling transactions totaling over 9.3+ million dollars in sold Real Estate. I had more opportunities in the first few years than many agents have over their entire careers. I had the pleasure of working with buyers to help them purchase their first-ever home - to - multi-time buyers looking to find their forever dream home. I gained experience working with many different real estate investors helping them find properties in the community, and I also had the unique opportunity to list homes for a mega-corporation, Freddie Mac. All of my success stories are owed to God, and following my mom's simple rule: "treat people the way you expect to be treated".

 

Being in the business today is defiantly much different than it was when I started in real estate.  There is so much "noise" for buyers and sellers. Knowing ALL of your options & having someone to trust is key in today's Georgia real estate market. Should I sell my home For Sale By Owner? What about the "we buy houses cash" signs at every red light? What is the best home loan option for me?  I will take all of the guesswork out for you. I will give you honest solutions that match what YOU need, NOT myself without ever any high-pressure sales tactics!

 

take great pride in treating every client like family, no matter the size home, or the timeline you are looking to buy or sell. So, no matter if your a first time home buyer and not sure where to start, or a property owner needing to sell and want ALL of your options upfront, I will help you - not overwhelm you! I offer guidance every step of the way to help you reach your goals! 

 

Contact me today & let's discuss your options. I look forward to working with you!


Sincerely,

"Anyone that knows me knows I work a lot because it really is my passion, but when I am not working, I enjoy doing DIY projects around the house, or making things as gifts to give. 

 

Michael and I also really love to travel - our favorite place to visit is Destin, FL we try to go at least twice a year.  We go on the pier for hours and fish all day."  

One of our many Destin, Fl fishing trips in 2015.

What's your favorite food?

"I am defiantly a southern girl and would have to say when eating out, chicken tenders and sweet tea are my favorites! When cooking, I love fresh field peas, or any other good veggies." 

Children?

"Yes! My sweet and amazing Goddaughter, Stevie.  Sadly, when Stevie was only 11, her mom (my aunt), passed away suddenly, and I had Stevie come to live with me.  She is 24 now and recently married! She is a full time nurse at Gainesville hospital. She does not realize it, but she has taught me more about life than I could have ever taught her. She has taught me that no matter what life brings you, even in times you just do not understand, you keep the faith and keep moving forward. I cant wait to see what God has in store for her and her future. She is truly an angel."

"Oh, Yes! My second child, lol! Michael and I have a German Sheppard named Zeus. He is the sweetest, most handsome & most spoiled dog on the planet, (ha-ha)! He follows me around everywhere which is annoying, yet so adorable at the same time! I am a dog mamma for sure!"

Favorite Places to Shop?

"I have to say - Home Depot (I know), I get in my "DIY project mode" and off to Home Depot I go!  Hobby Lobby and Michael's are also a few of my favorites - I love home decor and knowing what's the latest that's out there!   

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? 

"I would have to say, wherever God leads me. I would love the opportunity to one day write a book about some of my experiences in life, and or own a portfolio of vacation rental properties (with of course one right on the beach)!
