Born and raised in Atlanta, I have experienced the city and its surrounding suburbs' dynamic transformations and have driven on all 68 'Peachtree' streets for nearly four decades. I have lived, worked and played in just about every borough inside and outside the Atlanta Perimeter. I spent my undergrad years at the College of Charleston and obtained a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Georgia's College of Environment and Design.
As an adult, I have lived in Johns Creek, Milton, Chamblee and Brookhaven, in addition to Charleston, South Carolina and Coral Gables, Florida. Over the course of my career and personal leisure, I have traveled extensively to appreciate the diverse history, cultures, spirituality and beauty found around the world. I currently reside in Chamblee with my husband, our three precious children and a wild redheaded Goldendoodle. I love spending time with family and friends gathered around delicious food and bourbon. A proud Irish family, our little ones attend Preschool All Saints in Dunwoody and Saint Jude the Apostle Catholic School in Sandy Springs.
I am actively involved on both of their campuses as well as the Ronald McDonald House and various nonprofits through The Junior League of Atlanta. I am the President of the Dunwoody MOMS Club, and my children and I enjoy all its social get-togethers and community outreach and assistance programs. I also serve on the Huntley Hills Swim Tennis Club (HHSTC) Social Committee and Master Planning Committee. Beyond volunteering, I am usually working. I revel in the real estate industry, and it dominates my family's conversations and endeavors. During downtime, I can be at any local park with my kids, traveling, the Huntley Hills Pool or Lowe's for the never-ending home projects. When in need of renewal, my husband and I escape to the family farm in Cleveland, Georgia, to enjoy the landscape with our little ones.
Over the years, I have had much exposure to and involvement in reconstruction properties in and around the city, predominantly in Chamblee and Brookhaven. This is a value to my clients because, many times, I know of homes before they even hit the market through my network of industry and community colleagues. I am used to successfully competing for highly sought-after properties and am eager to navigate you through the negotiations and market demands. I also have a team of talented contractors I trust to help my clients in need.
I am trained to have a keen eye for detail, taking notice and critiquing form, function and aesthetics, which is a quality my clients appreciate. The slightest modification can alter a perception entirely, making or breaking a sale. I also value the importance of connectivity and accessibility, which, coupled with my organic knowledge of the city, is another benefit I offer my clients. A determining factor when buying or selling a permanent residence, vacation home or investment property is proximity, and I know where the best amenities are found. With my experience in ArcGIS data analysis, design and permit submittals, I know what can be feasibly achieved to enhance each property, whether the goal is to simply enjoy or sell with a meaningful return on investment.
I welcome the opportunity to represent you as your REALTOR®. I am eager to facilitate a smooth transaction and create a pleasant experience for you! Your consideration is appreciated.
