So I am very familiar with Nashville and the surrounding areas and all that Nashville has to offer. Many years ago I had my REAL ESTATE license in Atlanta, Ga. when I was a Marketing Rep with Delta Air Lines. Then six years ago I decided to get back into the real estate market in Nashville. I have my Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from Tulane University in New Orleans and so with my marketing experience and my math brain, I love to help buyers and sellers in the negotiating process, and well as insuring all the offers and contracts are correct and legal in all detail, and produce the desired outcome with as little stress as possible. I do love people and try very hard to really get to know my clients so that I can serve them and help them with one of life’s biggest decisions, buying and selling a home. When I am not working, i love to spend time with my family, my church family, my friends traveling or going to flea markets, my book club girls, my garden club ladies, jazzercise class, hiking, or walking my little Bichon, Sammy. I hope I may have the opportunity to meet you and help you anyway I can with your real estate needs.

    License Number: 334958

    Walking with people through a process, while easing the stress and pressure that comes along with big life choices, is an opportunity I get every day in real estate. With my father managing and helping agents as a real estate broker for over 40 years, and my mother, still a successful ReMax agent for over 25 years now, some would say I have real estate in my blood. My family’s dinner conversations were filled with offers, contracts, inspections, and closing details. It was no surprise that years after graduating college with a Communication Studies and a Marketing degree, I became a real estate agent in 2005. Starting off in new construction, I partnered with a local developer so that we could bring affordable housing condominiums to first-time homebuyers, retirees, and all stages in between. Through the years I’ve continued to work with all types of buyers, sellers, and investors in a range of properties from new construction to resale homes. Along the way I’ve earned several designations including a Broker license, Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), and Certified New Home Sales Professional (CSP). Today, as a member of Realty ONE Group Music City, the team we’ve created brings the highest level of experience, professionalism, and personal attention to anyone walking through the big, life choices of home ownership.

    We are thrilled to now be part of the Realty ONE Group Music City. After over 25 years with the company that has the balloon it was a decision that was not taken lightly for sure. Connie and I live our real estate business and feel the change to Realty ONE Music City was a natural life progression. Our goal with Realty ONE Group Music City will be to continue to weigh heavily on the side of the scale that shows the consumer the true value of the real estate professional. I've enjoyed the privilege of assisting home buyers and sellers for over 33 years now. After being involved in over 4,000 transactions personally, I feel I bring to the table a level of experience and expertise on the topic that few local Brokers can match. I have also personally written over 100 published real estate articles for the Tennessean answering local home owner’s questions in an effort to better educate the local consumer regarding their home buying and/or selling experience. Inspired by the near loss of my own home to foreclosure in 2009 because of the dramatic market downturn, our "WeSaveSellersThousands.com program was born. Since that time, we have literally saved hundreds of local Middle Tennessee home sellers millions of dollars of typically charged real estate fees through our aggressive fee structure. Why does Realty ONE Group Music City do what we do? Because each of us love serving our clients during one of the most exciting yet potentially challenging times of their lives, buying and/or selling their personal home. My hope is that we will get to serve you or someone you know very soon and have the opportunity to demonstrate why our collective commitment is to become the most passionately referred real estate team in all of middle Tennessee!
