I believe a realtor provides guidance, expertise and calm during what is often the most important purchase in your life. You really want someone who feels like a friend, a protector, marketer, negotiator and collaborator. After spending twenty plus years as a broadcast anchor/reporter and owning my own interior design firm, I am proud to have earned my real estate license. I am a new agent who brings enthusiasm to the market along with my well-honed skills as a communicator, storyteller, renovator and designer. I’m especially humbled to work with Allie Beth Allman and Associates and with Susan Baldwin of the Baldwin Group, a longtime top producing team. I bring to the team a fierce loyalty to our clients; the willingness to work hard; and the energy to find solutions when met with unique obstacles.
As a longtime real estate investor in Dallas, I have extensive knowledge of the Dallas market having lived in Lake Highlands, Highland Park, Bluffview and University Park. Given my zip code history, I feel very connected to how emotional and exciting the search for the perfect home and neighborhood can be; I also know first hand the challenges of getting a home ready for sale. However, my family has always had an ally to help us conquer any real estate obstacle: a good realtor.
Clearly, my family and I are not afraid of the moving process, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t experienced the stress and strain that can go along with buying and selling a home. One noted move was during the sweltering month of August while I was nine months pregnant and had a toddler and three dogs in tow. It seemed impossible, but with the help of our realtor, we made it work. We were also met with unique challenges while holding three properties during the housing market crash in 2008. Through good advice and faith that the market would rebound, we were able to profit through leasing and holding onto our investments. Historically, real estate has always brought my family financial security and assurance. I never tire of searching for the perfect home and making a space our own.
In addition to my love of house hunting and negotiating, I also thrive on deadlines and have a proven track record of finding calm and clarity during chaos. I love meeting new people and discovering their stories. Plus, I firmly believe that buying or selling a home can be a wonderful experience and an absolute joy. I would be honored to help you create your favorite story in your next home.
