“As a television Producer, my task was to shepherd my writer/director’s vision, to understand their creative desire- to “get it’ and, to make it happen…on budget, and most definitely, on schedule. That’s how I approach my job as a realtor. I understand and truly value the relationship of being a trusted advisor.”

“I consider my job to be a knowledge broker, a real estate matchmaker. I am a sole practitioner- I don’t have a team, the client hires me, and I provide a bespoke sales experience.

l love where I live, and I enjoy serving my neighbors, friends, and their circle of friends. It’s rewarding being involved with clients whom I like, in such a huge moment in their lives."
