Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me! I hope that after reading my Bio and looking over my professional resume you will feel like you know much more about me & the services that I provide... that way when you or any of your friends & family are ready to buy or sell a home you will feel confident calling me to help with all of your real estate needs!
I have been listing and selling homes in the Shenandoah Valley, Northern Virginia & The Eastern Panhandle for over 37 years & I'm a Listing Specialist with a proven marketing plan! Originally from Brooklyn NY, I moved to the Valley at 17 to attend Shenandoah University in Winchester, VA. I immediately fell in love with the area and all that it has to offer... I've been here ever since! I earned my VA Real Estate License in the early 80's just before my first son was born and since then my business as well as my family has really grown!
I am now licensed in both VA & WV! I've been with Century 21 my entire career & my office Century 21 Redwood Realty is located at 310 N. Buckmarsh Street in Berryville, VA.
I have 6 children including a set of triplets, which was a HUGE surprise... they were the first set of triplets ever to be born at The Winchester Medical Center! I also have 3 grandchildren! Between my business and my family there is never a dull moment!
I pride myself on the relationships that I've formed & developed in my career & care greatly for my customers & clients! Many of my clients bought there very 1st home from me years ago and every property thereafter, their loyalty means so much to me! We've become great friends and I have since helped their friends and family members to buy or sell. I work hard to obtain and keep my clients and enjoy getting to know them as well as keeping up with them even after the deal has closed. In this business referrals and repeat business are very important & after 37 years I have quite an extensive database!
If you're looking for a REALTOR offering experience, knowledge & integrity not to mention a full proof marketing plan then I'm the agent for you!
