I have lived most of my life in Cobb County. I moved to Georgia in 1984 and attended Mabry Middle School and Lassiter High School in East Cobb. I then earned my Industrial Engineering degree from Ga Tech, so I wasn't far from home during my college years. After graduation, my husband and I were married and moved to Jacksonville, FL for 5 years. Once we were ready to start a family of our own, we decided to move back to Atlanta to be closer to our own family. We moved back in 2000 and settled in on the other side of town in West Cobb.
After graduation from GA Tech, I worked in the IT field as a Business Analyst and really enjoyed it. However, once my first child arrived, I decided to leave my profession to stay home to raise my children. During that time, my husband and I 'flipped' a couple homes and I acted as my own agent and ran my own open houses to sell them myself. People would ask me "are you a real estate agent?" and I would say "no, but I sure enjoy doing it." After much thought, I finally decided to get my real estate license and do something I loved for a living instead of going back to corporate life. It was a great decision that now allows me to run my own business as a realtor and be flexible around my children's schedules. I chose to work for RE/MAX as they are the largest of all real estate companies with the most transactions per agent and the most training available so I never stop learning.
I am proud of how I am growing my business from referral. The best compliment is when someone thinks so highly of you that they refer you to their friends. Many of my buyers end up asking my family over for dinner once I have helped them settle into their new home. And many of my clients turn into friends because we build such a great relationship through the home buying/selling process. I am very lucky to be doing something I love for a living.
