I am a Northern Virginia native who grew up and still resides in the Bailey’s Crossroads area of Falls Church. I have witnessed firsthand the immense growth in the area! For me personally, the biggest change was living a couple blocks from the open field that used to become a carnival, which is now the popular Crossroads Center shopping. I graduated from Bishop O’Connell High School and the University of Virginia. I love Northern Virginia for its active lifestyle and cultural diversity. I am an avid sports fan, but football and baseball are my favorites!
Real estate has always been in my blood. By working with my late father as he took undeveloped pieces of land or dilapidated homes and created beautiful homes in their place, I learned how neighborhoods could be transformed with smart, sustainable, well-designed development. There is something so satisfying about seeing a vision for dirt, wood, and stone ultimately become someone’s home. As I have worked in real estate with a variety of clients whose needs are very individual, I have come to more than just a cognitive realization that a home is much more than its components. A home and its neighborhood represent a multitude of lifestyle choices. It is an incredible privilege to have people trust me with not only one of the largest investment decisions they will make, but to bring me into their journey in building a life.
One anecdote from my elementary school days that often comes to mind, is that I never knew exactly how to respond to a teacher when asked to identify my talents. When asked, I would reply that I was good at solving problems and finding creative solutions even when there were no easy answers. This is a much less tangible skill than playing an instrument or being a great soccer player. To be honest, I never realized just how useful those skills were until I entered the world of real estate. There are so many decisions and challenges that every buyer and seller encounters, and I pride myself on being able to find solutions when complicated situations arise.
My clients refer me to their friends and family because they know that I look out for their needs, uphold high ethical standards, and truly enjoy the opportunity to share knowledge and expertise. I look forward to getting to know you, seeing how I can help you achieve your goals, and becoming your trusted Realtor® for life!
