A little about me
I was born in the city of Charlotte. With exception of a short period of time building on culinary experience/education outside of NC, Charlotte has been my home. I have held various roles at a large contract food service company, including in compliance and category development. Prior to this, I was an instructor at a culinary college teaching in-person classes and assisted in class curriculum. As a professional on both sides of the service industry – educator and service provider, I am very adaptable, a self-starter, goal-oriented, personable, and an excellent communicator.
I started thinking about the real estate industry over a decade ago, and saw an opportunity once the pandemic hit. This was my chance to pursue my passion as a broker and I knew my current experience would help me. I have always had an interest in the real estate market, including listings and transitioning of neighborhoods – old/established to new builds and/or renovations. As a “true Charlottean” I have been an observer of growth in and around the city particularly during the last ten years. I have always had a love of architecture, design, landscaping; and there is such a variety in Charlotte metro regardless of the community – this is part of my Sunday sightseeing tour!
While my career as a broker is new, my sincere commitment to this business and personal success is solid. I am confident that my 15+ years as a business professional and excellent communicative skills will be a key my success. Also, as a new broker, I plan to focus on providing the best service to my clients. I want the clients to feel as special and cared for as I desire when personally making such an investment. While I greatly appreciate having a mentor, I plan to be my own advocate - self-driven to succeed, willing to learn, and fully utilize all resources available.
On a lighter side, as a chef, I love nice restaurants with beautifully prepared food that is both delicious and unique – I enjoy discovering different and new places to experience. Also, my love of renovating/construction of homes started around 10 years old when I watched every week - Bob Vila – This Old House. I loved watching the transition from start to finish – beautiful results and a happy homeowner.
