Original Bio

Until the birth of my first daughter I searched for my passion in many different places, but with her came purpose and the realization that the things I was best at were the things it took to make a great real estate agent. I graduated from the University of Maryland College Park with a BA in Poetry and worked as everything from the manager of a hardware store to a paralegal to a chef. Nothing seemed to fulfill me, each had moments where I felt good about what I was doing, but none made me feel like I fit in. The one thing that I found felt right is the thing that makes me an excellent Realtor; a love of helping people and it was this realization that brought me to this place.

In 2006 I decided to go to school and learn the basics of Real Estate and after looking for the right broker found Exit Realty, now  I am a full time agent with the Paul Gillespie Group at Exit Preferred Realty . I specialize in representing my clients in the purchase and sale of single-family residences and income property. I pride myself on my knowledge of all facets of the industry including current transactions, school districts, neighborhood information and related services like mortgages, insurance and inspections.

As with most businesses, the Internet has changed the face of how we buy and sell houses and I embrace this new frontier. Advanced search technologies and the myriad of resources unavailable twenty years ago has created a more informed and savvy client, understanding and using these resources is the only way to provide a client with the level of service needed in today's changing market. I am a student of the Internet age with one foot in the future, but at the same time I know that good old fashioned customer service, things like returning a call  in a timely manner and being prompt for an appointment, is just as important.

As huge a part of my life as Real Estate is, the other thing that fills my days is raising my two beautiful daughters and helping them to become beautiful, intelligent, strong women who are successful and happy. I have lived in Maryland since I was 1, after my mother moved from Texas to be closer to our family. When I am not helping my clients, I am spending my time with them. 

I love cooking for family and friends, trying new recipes and refining old ones, and music, having spent many hours collecting and seeing live music. My other passions are old movies, DIY home remodeling and both reading and writing poetry. I wake each morning ready for a good day and see every situation as a glass-half-full proposition.
