While earning a business degree at the University of Tennessee, I obtained my real estate license in 2003. I spent the next ten years managing a top producing real estate team that averaged over $25 million a year in sales. In addition to working with buyers and sellers, I became a broker and took on roles for training, developing, and advising other agents. In 2014 I decided to pave my own path as an agent and went into business on my own. Like my personality, I am a very easy-going Realtor. My philosophy is to take a soft, low pressure approach with my clients so they never feel rushed or pressured into buying or selling a home until they’re ready.
