Jamestown Resident since: 1989                        Hometown: Wickford, RI

Why I do what I do: It is said that people who have passion for what they do are more successful. I have been a full time Realtor® for over 23 years. Bringing buyers and sellers together in a professional manner to achieve their goals is why I do what I do. Satisfying my clients’ real estate needs gives me the drive to succeed.

A little bit about me: Many people don’t know that I was born in Germany and came to America at the age of 3. I am fluent in both French and German. I attended The University of South Carolina and also studied at the University of Vienna in Austria. Prior to working in real estate, I was an investment banker in NYC. 

What I do when I’m not doing real estate: I have raised 3 wonderful children and am soon to become an empty nester. I served on the Board of Trustees for the CYC here in Jamestown and was also President of Historic Wickford. Most recently, I was on the Board for the Jamestown Chamber of Commerce. In my limited free time, I enjoy boating, traveling and walking my Jack Russell, Mogley.

Notable accomplishments in my real estate career: In my time as a Realtor® I have closed over $100 million in sales. I recently worked with first time home buyers. They were renting and did not think they would be able to find their dream home. On the contrary, I found the perfect home and they bought it. I look forward to the next opportunity to help make someone’s real estate dreams come true.
