I started my career in the corporate world and then transitioned successfully to real estate sales, where I have built a strong, consistent business over 24 years through a variety of business cycles and market conditions.
Real-estate sales is essentially project management on steroids. At any given point, I am managing 12-20 projects – each with different objectives, different personalities, and different stakeholders – but each with a client who wants his or her project to be my first priority.
My success is based on how well I guide clients through the sales process and how well I close – and I do that well. I am successful because I do a great job of setting expectations with my clients – setting the right asking price, helping them understand market forces, and showing them the benefits of being flexible in how they market their homes – and because I leverage my extensive network to find the right buyer or seller. Buyers and sellers consistently talk about my responsiveness, knowledge, compassion, integrity, and ability to achieve (and drive) deadlines when they fill out the surveys after the sale has closed.
Success in real estate is truly a team effort, requiring great communications with other Realtors and strong coordination with inspectors, contractors, appraisers, mortgage lenders, and attorneys to ensure a hassle-free, smooth closing for all parties.

Gently wind down all this private lane all the way to the end and you will be wowed by the panoramic views of the graceful meadows and the rolling hills of Chester County. This private retreat sits on 9.4 acres! Are you in search of that perfect lot? Come and build your own special retreat and blend the old charm with the new amenities and floor plan! Built in 1780, this farmhouse has all of the charm of days gone by. Surrounded by mature perennial gardens, a winding walkway leads to the veranda and to this stone and stucco home. Upon entering this home, there are hardwood floors throughout, wonderfully sized rooms and deep window sills as found in a vintage stone home. Relax in the family room and enjoy the grand fireplace, or retreat to the private living room for some private time. The dining room features built in bookcases and welcomes those family dinners. The kitchen is just so unique and features a brick surrounded area which houses the cooktop and brick basket weave floors which lead to the the bright and light morning room. The morning/breakfast room is large and features a wet bar and stunning views from every window. Off of the kitchen is the light-filled sunroom, again with basket weave brick flooring and panoramic views of the meadows. This leads to the fenced pool, which has recently been totally renovated and surrounding flagstone patio is just gorgeous! While relaxing at your own "staycation", once again, the serene location will just bring you back in time to the late 1700's! How relaxing is that! The curved staircase leads to the second floor complete with a full bath, three full bedrooms with a possible fourth. A full staircase leads to the third floor, which could be completed for future space. Be sure to enjoy outdoor gathings with friends and family in the pavillion. What a great place to host a picnic or barbeque. This pavilion also has the potential to be enclosed and converted to a horse stable as well, making it great for those who want to bring the horses and other animals along. The carriage house provides wonderful storage, a garage and above, an auxiliary living/guest quarters complete with 1 br, 1 ba and a large kitchen/great room combo. Chill out on the large deck and absorb the breathtaking views from this cottage. Do I hear Airbnb? If you are searching for that special place where you can get away from it all, this home is a must see!
