About Me

I am originally from Wisconsin. I earned a B.S. in Biology from Bucknell University and a master's in physiology from Indiana University. My family and I lived in South Florida and Vero Beach for 15 years while I worked in the medical field.

My husband and I have two children: a daughter who is an accomplished equestrian eventor and who is also pursuing several careers in teaching and hydrogeology, and a son who has almost completed his performance and business degree at Berklee College to move into the music management industry to help artists succeed. My two additional "children" that reside at home are dogs.

When not out working in real estate or managing vacation rentals, I enjoy mountain living with lots of activities from hiking to exercising, far and near traveling, and other activities centered around family.

Experience

Being a RealtorⓇ is a helping and caring profession—listening to what others want and need. I enjoy putting all the pieces together to facilitate the process of buying or selling your property.

I've always had a passion for real estate and remodeling. When I began my second career in 2007, I knew I wanted to live in the mountains. Clearly, I made the best two moves!

Haywood County is a wonderful place to live, work, and play. I feel so fortunate to be on the frontline of working in real estate for all the people in our community, as well as introducing people to our area.

Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
