Finally, I am doing what I truly love to do....helping people make decisions about buying and selling their homes! I don't do it because I have to; I do it because I want to! I've already done the "have to" journey and have the bumps and bruises to prove it. For over 25 years I worked at various levels within multiple international technology corporations. During that time, I obtained an Executive MBA from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and designation as a lifetime Certified Purchasing Manager by the Institute for Supply Management.

And as a final thought, I also love Golden Retrievers. I have two of them, and they are friendly, loyal and intelligent. My belief is that if I can provide what they do in those three categories to my Clients, I'll always be successful! A percentage of all of my earnings is donated to the Neuse River Golden Retriver Rescue. This group helps abandoned, abused or injured Golden Retrievers find a loving home.....something we all should have!

Specialties: Short Sale and Foreclosure Certified, Senior Real Estate Specialist, strong business background.
