Real Estate is my PASSION and I am Your Tech Savvy Broker never forgetting that it’s always about being human in each transaction. My business direction is to have each and every client receive the best of what is available to them in the purchase or sale of their most expensive and important asset in their life at that moment, their home.
Originally from Bergen County, NJ, I headed south to Atlanta, Georgia in 1991. I became licensed in real estate in 1994. I joined Coldwell Banker and moved quickly to RE/MAX. In 2006 I became an owner/broker and in 2007 I became licensed in Virginia. In 2008 I said goodbye to Georgia and headed back north, settling in Fairfax, Virginia.
I came to love the DC Metro region as much as my beloved NY Metro area (sometimes more shhhhh . . . ). Building a new business is starting from the beginning so from the ground up I went. I joined Long and Foster in December 2008 and obtaining my DC and MD licenses quickly. I entered 2010 and knew it was time to transition out of Atlanta. I focused exclusively on the mid-Atlantic region and looked north. First step, I moved to Keller Williams August of 2010, and finally phased completely out of Atlanta October 2010. December 2011, I became Managing Broker for Keller Williams Capital Properties Fairfax. In 2012 with northbound in sight, I obtained my licenses in NJ and NY. Still managing KWCP, I moved back to northern Bergen County in August 2012. I joined Keller Williams Pascack Valley as Broker Associate and again started to build a another new business in the NJ/NY region while continuing to manage and sell in the DC Metro region. Another move to Keller Williams Metro Center Tyson’s Corner (Vienna) VA and I became Managing Broker from March 2013 to June 2014. Time to end the 2-year commute from NY to DC and the decision was made to move back to DC in July 2014.
August 2014 brought another decision, leaving management and return my focus on my business. I joined RE/MAX as Associate Broker in August 2014. Opportunity presented itself again, I became Managing Broker of the RE/MAX Gateway Arlington and Lorton offices from August 2015 until August 2016. I was still actively listing and selling with the additional duties of managing, creating educational opportunities for the realtor community with specific focus on recruiting. As a tech oriented Managing Broker my focus was to teach agents to embrace technology in their property’s marketing and use it as a tool and asset in selling real estate.
All those moves and experiences under my belt now brought the decision back to the forefront to open my brokerage with my vision and more importantly my values. Having already established this first in Atlanta, GA, I now had the experience on what not to do. My vision? A real estate brokerage, I believe, should exist with the focus on putting people before profit. I am thrilled to have now laid my roots down again and established City Center Realtors in August 2016! Here I am Your Tech Savvy Broker City Center Realtors!
