I retired from healthcare in 2005 to pursue a career in real estate; affiliated with RE/MAX Leading Edge in 2007, achieving RE/MAX 100% Club status 2008/2009/2010; and established my own real estate brokerage in 2010. I've earned the following designations that enable me to work with unique client needs - still fulfilling my lifelong destiny to "make a positive difference" in the world: Transnational Referral Certified (TRC), EcoBroker® Certified, Five Star Professional - Short Sale & REO (FSP), Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), Short Sales & Foreclosure Resource (SFR), Certified Short Sale Seller Agent (CSSS), Certified Short Sale Buyer Agent (CSSB).
I'm a "baby boomer" born in Key West, FL (yes, a native Conch) into a career military family. My husband and I live in a rural area near Mt Pleasant, NC; my 94-year-old mother - whose family history in North Carolina dates back to the 1740's - lives with us. I have four children and five grandchildren, all of whom live in Mecklenburg and Cabarrus counties. My passions are my grandchildren, gardening/canning, reading and photography, SCUBA, and the wonders of rural living!
