I moved to Gainesville in 1974. After graduating from high school, I left my beloved home town to pursue a business education at Duke University and a MBA in Marketing and Healthcare Management from The Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. After a ten year marketing career in big pharma, I returned to Gainesville and pursued my interest in real estate. Having been a real estate investor for years, I turned my passion into a career by becoming a full-time Realtor. Within two years, I earned my Broker license and opened my own brokerage in 2010.
With my background and expertise in marketing, in my first year, I sold almost $5 million in real estate and have since been consistently ranked in the top 1-2% of Realtors in sales in Gainesville. In 2011, I became the #1 selling residential agent in the county and again held this position in 2012 when I sold 96 sides. In addition to selling real estate, I own several rental properties in Gainesville.
In my spare time, I am active in my community. I have been on the PTA at my daughters’ schools and various other community boards for several years, have been active teaching Gainesville's youth at my church, and volunteer regularly with the homeless. In addition, I serve as the chairman for Duke University's Gainseville chapter of the Alumni Admissions Advisory Committee, educating local high school juniors about the university and interviewing potential candidates. Most recently, I accepted an invitation to serve on Trinity United Methodist Church's Board of Trustees. I have two daughters and a beloved rescue dog with whom I devote significant time. In my free time, I enjoy running and working out, cooking, travelling and meeting new people.
