I was born in Ashland, Kentucky, and graduated from Paul G. Blazer High School. I obtained my degree in business administration from Marshall University and began my career in real estate in 1998. I've worked diligently to grow my business since then and am currently a full-time Realtor licensed in West Virginia and Ohio. I am a member of the Huntington Board of Realtors, the Kanawha Valley Board of Realtors and the Ashland Area Board of Realtors.
My real estate accreditations include ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative), CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), GRI (Graduate of Realtor Institute), RMM (Residential Marketing Master), CREN (Certified Residential Negotiator) and most recently, ASP (Accredited Staging Professional).
The ABR designation by the Real Estate Buyer's Agency Council, Inc. places me in the company of only about 30,000 real estate professionals. This designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation and demonstrates my commitment to providing outstanding service for real estate buyers.
The CRS designation places me in the top 3% of real estate agents in the country. This designation not only provides me with the knowledge and professional tools to represent my clients, but it provides access to a network of like agents across the nation, enabling me to interchange ideas and processes with some of the best in the field, as well as insure quality service and representation to my clients relocating to other parts of our nation.
My ASP membership provides me with skills and tools to insure, with your cooperation, that your home presents itself best to real estate agents and prospective buyers, both in person and on the internet, when it initially goes onto the market.
Hard work and dedication to my career, in combination with my previous experience in customer service with American Electric Power, has been the key to my success beginning with my selection as "Rookie of the Year" in 1999 with Ullom Realty (now Old Colony, Realtors) to the top producing agent in 2016 with Old Colony, Realtors.
With more than 20 years in real estate, much of my business today is from repeat clients and referrals from past customers and friends. My real estate team consists of a licensed Realtor assistant and a Client Care Manager to insure we meet your every real estate need as efficiently and promptly as possible.
