I received my BA degree from Mount Holyoke College and my graduate degree in history from the University of Maryland. I have had short stories published as well as a political biography, served as a speech writer and now have been in real estate since 1995, successfully serving the entire Washington D.C. area: Maryland, D.C. and Northern Virginia. I am very experienced in working as both a listing and buyers' agent and excel in negotiating difficult issues, follow up and superb service, which has brought me much return business and referrals. I love my work, derive great satisfaction from assisting and guiding people through the sometimes emotional process of selling and/or buying a home. I've worked in all price ranges from starter homes to upper bracket properties and I have worked with builders, attorneys and trust officers on estate sales, the University of Maryland with incoming faculty, relocations, neighbors in my own community and referrals from long-time friends and clients. It's been extremely rewarding and I would love to hear from you.
