I have a strong background in education and have worked in the public school system as a teacher and later as an education administrator in curriculum and instruction and in professional development for adults.


Prior to coming to Home Coach, I worked as a training coordinator for new agent onboarding and backend systems for a large real estate firm.  Additionally, I worked as a transaction coordinator and I have an excellent understanding of the rules and regulations in the real estate industry and I really enjoy helping new agents and clients navigate the real estate home buying process.


My family and I live in Morrisville, the heart of the Triangle and when I’m not teaching or showing homes to clients I love spending time with my husband, our two wonderful children and our beautiful Aussie dog.  We enjoy biking, hiking, gardening and spending time with family and friends.  





I was born and raised in Raleigh, NC.  I married a Raleigh native and he and I have been blessed to raise two delightful children in the same area.  Our son and daughter are now both in college in NC.  I have a background in nursing (since 1993) and also worked part time as an associate private investigator for 8 years.  

In 2012 my husband and I bought some land where we planned to build our "dream home".  In 2013 we sold our home and started to build our new home.  The process of buying and selling and building was emotional and not always easy.  That is the main reason I decided to get into real estate.  I wanted to help others get through those real estate transactions with a sense of trust and confidence in their agent.  I believe it is imperative that a client can communicate openly with and trust their agent. 

 

Another important aspect of a good agent is that they are knowledgeable and familiar with the most up-to-date information available in the real estate business.  There are legislative issues to stay on top of as well as new training and industry standards to learn.  I have always tried to keep up with changes and new ideas.  That is why I am adding teaching to my resume.  Teaching will keep me up to date on the newest information as well as being able to network with others in the industry and share what I am learning, and also gleaning new information from other agents and their experiences.  I am a firm believer that we are never too old to learn new things and we never know all there is to know on any one subject.  I look forward to sharing that philosophy with others. 

If you are looking for someone who will listen to your needs, be frank with you about what to expect, and honest through the entire real estate transaction, and work tirelessly for you then please contact me!  I look forward to working with you.
