Having moved to Memphis from Knoxville following graduate school, I decided to pursue a career in real estate in the early '80's. With 4 children under the age of 7, I wanted I a job where I would have the flexibility to set my own hours and appointments. This allowed me to be available for the many activities that came with raising a busy family.
My interest in real estate began at an early age. My father was an electrical engineer with TVA but he was also a very talented carpenter as was his father. My father, along with the help of his father, built the first house I really remember living in. It was a one level sprawling brick rancher with hardwood floors, smooth ceilings and large rooms. I lived in that house my entire life until I finished college. In addition to building our family home, my father drew house plans for the other homes being built in our neighborhood. I was always very interested in my father's drafting table and the floor plans he was creating. I feel these childhood experiences led me toward a career in buying and selling that all important part of peoples lives, their home.
When I moved to Memphis from Knoxville, I didn't know my way around the city but I quickly learned. I also began to get involved in local organizations, meet new friends and soon became an ardent admirer of our city. I love Memphis and enjoy showing and selling it to new comers. We are blessed with many verdant and leafy neighborhoods filled with architecturally interesting homes, and warm and generous folks . In addition, our city is rich in good food, art and music.
I have been actively involved in Habitat for Humanity where I quickly learned I will never be able to wield a hammer like my father or grandfather but I do love the challenge. I am very passionate about our earth and environment and have been involved with The Sierra Club as time permits. I get a great deal of pleasure in involvement in community outreach activities.
My professional accreditation's include; Life Member of the MAAR Multi Million Dollar Club, GRI, CRS and ABR.
