After a successful career as a public relations specialist with a major bank in Richmond, Virginia, my family and I moved to St. Louis in 1977 where I became the owner and operator of a kitchen and bath remodeling showroom, Kitchen Masters, Inc.
In 1980 I sold my business to stay home with my children until they entered school full-time. Wanting a flexible career that would allow me time to volunteer at school in various capacities with my children while using my design and management skills, Real Estate attracted me immediately. Thus, my Real Estate career of some 30 years began.
I entered Real Estate in 1986 with Coldwell Banker combining my past experience in decorating, public relations, business and finance. I very quickly discovered that Real Estate was a perfect fit for myself and family. I also learned that the flexibility I had desired was not quite what I had expected with weekend and evening work a necessity. By that time, however, it was too late and I was hooked on Real Estate.
My continuing desire to offer experience and expertise with one of the most important decisions a family will ever make, home ownership, in a professional and knowledgeable manner provides me a way to interact with new friends and old friends, family and community.
Thirty some years later, I still love my work and have continued to be an award-winning, multi-million dollar producer. My career has taken me from several nationally known real estate companies where I have gained much and I have chosen Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Alliance Real Estate (formerly Prudential Alliance) due to their outstanding award winning reputation. Each move has advanced my career and I am proud to have created a Team Concept with lenders, title companies, office staff and a conceiere service providing carpenters, movers, home builders, community connections as well as babysitters and animal care. If there is a need, my team has the answer! It is the best concept I know...total service from start to finish all in one place!
I specialize in making home ownership fast, fun and profitable. My goal is to make WINNERS and WINNING SITUATIONS for all involved...I believe each situation deserves a customized plan to make the real estate experience a success.
"I HOPE TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE YOUR REALTOR when a move is on the horizon. I promise to WORK HARD TO MAKE YOUR EXPERIENCE BOTH PLEASANT & SUCCESSFUL, YOUR FIRST HOME, LAST HOME and each stop along the way!
LARGE or Small...condo, new home, vacation home, in town or across the country, I specialize in them all which is why I am referred to as "THE REAL ESTATE LADY" by my friends, family and happy, satisfied home buyers and sellers!
