I have been a licensed Realtor for 24 years, primarily on the Virginia Peninsula. After graduating from Christopher Newport University with a Bachelor of Science in business with a concentration in economics, I successfully began my real estate career. I specialize in helping both buyers and sellers – buyers, to achieve their goal of home ownership, and sellers, to make a sale in a timely manner for top dollar.
During the past several years, I branched out into renovating homes and thereby gained a keen eye for cost-effective upgrades that quickly sell a home at the best price. At the same time, I began staging properties, a service I continue to offer clients today. Buyers appreciate seeing a homey atmosphere rather than a blank slate, and sellers are aware that staging helps lead to a quick sale.
I was honored to be the design consultant and stager for the 2011 Buckroe Beach Parade of Homes. Our home was the Peoples’ Choice Award winner and was the first home sold. I have since been a judge at the 2014, 2015, and 2016 Richmond Homearamas.
I started my own business – UpStaging Realty – as a way to have the freedom to offer my clients the full range of my services. I provide advice on all aspects of real estate transactions and act as a financial consultant when necessary. You can trust me to handle your real estate needs with care and diligence. Prompt communication, integrity, accuracy, courtesy, and honesty are my promise to you. A cornerstone of my business has always been “Treating Clients Like Family.” Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you may have.
