As a native and lifelong Virginia resident with over 30 years as a homeowner in Alexandria, I have witnessed the vast and rapid growth in Northern Virginia. This has enabled me, in my 10+ years as a Realtor with McEnearney Associates, to help my clients understand and adapt to the ever changing real estate market.
My excellent organization skills, attention to detail and personal service skills have been honed during the 25 + years I spent as a meeting and event planner, two of which were spent with the National Association of Home Builders.
My real estate philosophy is patience, persistence, hard work, communication and always looking out for my clients’ best interest. Rather than a quick sale my focus is to build relationships and trust. I am acutely aware that every client is different. By listening to my clients I am able to assist them formulate, prioritize and refine what is really important in the sale or purchase of a home. I believe it is crucial for my clients to be educated in the process, knowing in advance everything that is needed toward the successful completion of a sale. Instead of seeing problems I see challenges to overcome. Providing referrals for the best lenders, inspectors and other vendors is another of my services. I am with my clients every step of the way from our initial meeting to settlement and beyond.
Prior to real estate, I had my own business as an independent meeting planner and consultant, worked for a national political party in major donor fundraising and special events, volunteered and was a member of the Executive Committee of the Alexandria Red Cross Waterfront Festival and served as Treasurer and Member of my condo association’s Board of Directors.
I graduated with honors from Adelphi University in New York, spending my junior year at Tel Aviv University in Israel.
Testimonials from my clients attest to my expertise, command of the process, negotiation skills, commitment, professionalism, integrity, dedication and research in every aspect of the sale. To quote one of my clients “she is the best of the best”.
