The most satisfying part of my job is helping families with their real estate needs. I am thankful that so many generations of buyers and sellers over the years have become repeat clients and lasting friends. Having earned a reputation as a "matchmaker for homes and families" and an experienced Realtor® with Long & Foster in Richmond, Virginia, I bring a unique and valuable perspective on a variety of area neighborhoods and "all things Richmond." I have called Richmond home most of my life. Growing up and working here in Richmond has given me an extensive and intimate knowledge of the area. This experience, combined with sharp negotiation skills, has resulted in better values, sales prices and happy clients on both sides of the transaction.
Developing a personal relationship with clients is one of my strengths, a quality that takes the potential stress out of selling and buying your home. Along with a comprehensive analysis of your home buying and selling needs, I prioritize your comfort level to ensure that every step of your experience is efficient and seamless.
Together with my team at Long and Foster, I offer a full range of services from contract to closing, making your transition as smooth as possible. This includes handling all of the details required and coordinating with lenders, inspectors, appraiser, contractors and closing attorneys. When I’m not busy finding great matches between buyers and sellers, I enjoy spending time with my children, their spouses, three grandchildren and two grand dogs. I also enjoy dining out with my husband of 37 years, at one of Richmond’s many delicious restaurants, or just hanging out with Darby, my beloved rescue dog. I love antiquing and bargain hunting, and am an avid sports fan, especially when it comes to college football, ACC basketball, and swimming.
Naturally, the Coronavirus has curtailed many my favorite activities, real estate included. Please contact me directly to learn how COVID19 is affecting Richmond’s real estate market, and precautions we are taking to safely bring together homes and families.
The strength of my business has been built on referrals, so chances are you, or someone you know, already knows me. If not, I would love to add you to my list of happy and satisfied clients. Call me today!
