Relax, I'll handle it!

Real Estate & Sumter, SC - two things I know & love very well! Combining the two gives me great joy.

I’ve been a full time REALTOR since 2004. As a 3rd generation REALTOR, I guess you can say it’s in the genes. My grandfather, father, many aunts, uncles, cousins and even siblings have had the privilege of assisting 1000’s of families and individuals reach their real estate goals. It’s addicting - the challenge, the joy of handing over the keys to a new home owner and even the bittersweet goodbyes to sellers who are moving on to the next chapter in their lives. I’ve worked with first time buyers, first time sellers, investors, retirees, empty-nesters, builders, single moms & dads and even had the honor to help grieving family members handle their loved ones estates. This is way more than a job. This career inserts me directly into the lives of magnificent people all over the world. There is nothing like it!

Born in West Virginia, I consider myself an Arizona native because that’s where 95% of my life happened (pre-marriage)! Grew up in and around the Tucson area, more specifically, Tumacacori, very near the Mexico border. Married my knight-in-shining armor - his armor happened to resemble an Air Force uniform, moved to the Netherlands for 5 years, then landed at Shaw AFB and this is where we’ve called home for 30+ years. We have 2 beautiful daughters who were raised here in Sumter. In 2010, we entered one of the best chapters of our lives - grandparenthood! We now have 4 beautiful grandchildren and couldn’t be happier! Russ and I have been members of our wonderful little church, Destiny Praise Center, for 25+ years and serve as deacons.

I love my God. I love my family. I love this city. And I love this business! Combine all of those and I’d say life is good! I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your real estate goals/needs! Let’s do this!
