As a real estate agent, I work and live for the love of home. I’m your trusted advisor, your practiced negotiator, your skilled house-hunter, your home decorator and stager, and your real estate market and neighborhood expert.
Born and raised in VA, and as a resident of Northern Virginia for over 45 years, I have an intimate knowledge of Virginia and the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area – from museums and shops to its schools, hiking trails, restaurants, community events, and wineries. Your home is not only a real estate investment and source of financial security, but also a place where special memories are made. Won't you join me! I would love to help guide you, your family and friends in your next home seeking or selling adventure.
Working with me, you’ll also gain the expertise and backing of the Long & Foster (L&F) family brand, the #1 residential real estate company in America and leader in the industry for 55 years. We provide an exceptional client experience with one stop shopping - an all-inclusive ultimate team from Reston L&F Brokerage, Prosperity Home Mortgage, RGS Title and settlement, L&F Insurance, Tailored Move, Insights Home Inspections, Turnkey Listing Concierge by Curbio (refresh, renovations, remodels with no project minimum; fix now and pay at closing), and more.
Tech savvy with a strong digital presence, I can leverage digital technology and marketing tools to drive home sales.
Educated in the local VA/DC Metro area, happy to share my business acumen & wonderful community experience. As a graduate of W.T. Woodson High School in Fairfax, the University of Richmond (bachelor’s degree in finance), and George Washington University in D.C. (master’s in business administration (MBA) degree), I truly understand the financial and economic levers that drive the real estate market and how to position us well to maximize home value and enhance buyer purchasing power.
Prior to pursuing a career in real estate, I led a successful career in management consulting, business operations, and business development acquiring many skills that translate well into my real estate business. I am entrepreneurial, strategic, organized, a clear communicator, and enjoy partnering with others. Compassionate, friendly and results oriented, I bond easily with clients and am devoted to exceeding your real estate needs.
I also enjoy serving my community as a Fairfax County Public School Substitute Teacher at Oak Hill Elementary School; and am a passionate advocate and volunteer for science enrichment programs. I have held several leadership roles and currently serve as a Youth Advisory Board mentor and community ambassador of the Northern VA Science Center Foundation, with plans underway to build a science museum in Loudoun County by 2025.
When not immersed in real estate, I enjoy traveling, experiencing new cultures, spending time with family and friends, and sailing locally on the Chesapeake Bay with my husband (& college sweetheart), Steve, of 33 years, and 2 wonderful sons. Ryan is a University of Virginia graduate with a degree in Cognitive Science & Neuroscience, formerPhilanthropy Chair of Theta Chi; Eagle Scout, Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, and talented musician (music production, guitar, keyboards, singer). Cameron recently graduated from Chantilly High School and is Clemson University Bound, as a business major; a passionate scholar athlete (football, basketball, and black belt in Tae Kwon Do) andenjoys investing for fun.We all enjoy our endearing golden retriever, Barkley.
