    Being your buyer specialist provides me with opportunity to do three of my favorite things: helping people with their homes, planning and, of course, entertaining! Before real estate, I was heavily involved in the banking industry as a mortgage loan processor, underwriter, closer, post-closing auditor and a short-sale mediator, working to negotiate with banks on behalf of my clients in need of financial relief. I most recently owned an event planning business on Hilton Head, planning and executing personal and corporate parties typically for 100 people or more. Both experiences, along with my knowledge of the area, put me in a perfect position to help you make your dreams come true!

    My Philosophy. You First. A native of Hilton Head Island since 1982, I love sharing this amazing area with people from all over the world. In order for my clients to make the best decisions possible, I provide top notch information and market insight throughout every step of the process. I’m known for outstanding client service, 24/7 availability, high tech marketing and closing techniques, and a sincere personal touch. My client’s best interest is always at heart. Whether buying or selling, I understand the process can often be challenging and complicated without the right guidance and knowledge. Ultimately, my main goal is to “Put you in a perfect place,” and I utilize every resource available to make that happen for you. My focus is to take the pressure off you by listening to you, anticipating your needs and following through. I am extremely knowledgeable about the Hilton Head Island and Bluffton communities, amenities and lifestyles, along with the inventory of real estate available. On a personal note, I’m originally from Old Saybrook, Connecticut. I am passionate about dog safety and rescue, actively assisting various organizations in the area. In my spare time I love exploring the South, camping, biking, boating and playing tennis. I attended Hilton Head Prep (Class of 1992) and Yale University, and have a background in real estate operations, marketing and information technology.
