Q. Where did you grow up?

A. I grew up in Rockaway NJ in a lake community called White Meadow Lake which is in Morris County. After high school, I attended Ramapo College of New Jersey in Bergen County to obtain my Bachelor Degree in Business. I purchased by first condo in Middlesex County and now I live and raise my family in Hillsborough in Somerset County. I love Hillsborough and it’s central location to everything. I’m a life-long Jersey Girl at heart and understand the demographics and housing market in different communities.

Q. What do you see in the future for Real Estate sales and prices?

A. In my 25 years of selling real estate, I have seen markets swing in varying degrees. I have sold in buyers’ markets and sold in sellers’ markets. Although it is very hard to predict the future, the real estate market has been very strong the last couple of years. Interest rates are at an all-time low so many first-time homebuyers are trying to get into the market. I also see an increase in the number of investors looking to enter the market.

Q. What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

A. In addition to being with my family, I like to stay active by working out, biking and walking. I also recently completed my first Rugged Maniac race. For the past 10 years, I was a volunteer for the Fresh Air Fund where I was the chairperson for all of Somerset and Hunterdon County. I was responsible for recruiting families to host inner-city children for summer vacations. We were also a host family and enjoyed having kids at our house all summer.

Q. What are the top 3 things that separate you from your competition?

A. First, I take a very honest and comprehensive look at my client’s situation, family, financial goals, and the marketplace. Next, I build a relationship with my client and embrace their goals as my own. Finally, I accept a high level of responsibility for my clients’ satisfaction and achievement of these goals.

Q. How long have you worked in real estate?

A. I started in the mortgage business after college and decided to transition to real estate in 1992. I worked as a sales associate with the Top Producing Agent at Prudential NJ Properties. We were the #1 Award Winning Sales Team in the entire company. I switched to Keller Williams Realty in 2013 and have been a Top Producing Agent as well as the Director of Agent Services. I was also involved in the New Agent Mentoring and Training Program.

Q. What is your specialty?

A. I love working with first time homebuyers. There is nothing more rewarding than helping someone purchase their first home. I also work with investors. I have invested in many properties myself, I’m currently a landlord and I have successfully flipped homes. This gives me the experience and insight into these markets. In addition, I also sell in a lot in adult communities since many of my clients are downsizing.
