Tell Us About You
I am a wife to an avid golfer and great supporter of my work schedule. I am also a mother of two and step-mother to five grown children, A very happy grandmother to three grandsons and one granddaughter 12 step grandchildren and 3 step-great grandchildren.
My son will be retiring from the Army in approx two more years. I am looking forward to eventually being closer to him and his wonderful family so that I can enjoy them and spoil my two grandchildren he has given me.
My daughter and her two children live near me in South Carolina and she works with me as my BPO Manager and licensed property manager.
With my sons involvement in the military, many of the people I have met have made me realize how much I can help them in their search for a home! I appreciate all that the military personnel and their families have sacrificed for the rest of us and I am only to happy to repay them in a small way by helping them with the proper way to purchase their next home or sell their existing one.
Having been involved in the real estate industry as a buyer and seller of fixer upper homes for the past 30 years I decided to become a real estate agent. Since receiving my South Carolina real estate license in July of 2005 I have successfully completed many transactions as buyer's agent, seller's agent and dual agent since then. I am working extremely hard to become your choice as a foreclosure and short sale specialist and currently work with 102 different banks and asset managment companies on their REO properties. I purchased Carolina Pines Realty, Inc from it's founder, Barbara Wright, in 2008.
I have been active in the Coastal Carolinas Association of Realtors serving on the

•In March of 2007 I was awarded the Realtor Image award by the assocation of Realtors and appreciate the faith that they have in me.
•In 2009 I was awarded a Good Neighbor Award by National Association of Realtors
I have completed my CDPE, DMS, A-REO, CRS, GRI, ABR, e-Pro, RDCPro, REOS, RESS, Res.Net, NVSI, NFSTI and other designations along with obtaining my broker's license in 2008. I am a true believer that good knowledge of my profession is essential so that I can offer my clients and customers good quality service and have firm foundation for my business. I also currently perform Broker Price Opinions for a number of banks and asset management companies which gives me an ongoing education and listings of foreclosure and bank owned properties.
In addition to learning the real estate business over the years, I was employed at OST Trucks and Cranes, in Ventura CA, in the marketing and sales department and then as the finance controller and IT manager. I also learned duct design, equipment selection, and blue print reading during the years I worked for Bay Area Air Conditioning in Crystal River, FL as estimator and construction supervisor. I feel very comfortable not only in resale properties but also new construction homes.
In 2005 I felt the need to move to be closer to my grown children and grandchildren so we chose the Conway area. I felt the real estate industry would be a good business to become involved in and I chose to work with Barbara as I liked the idea of offering individualized service to people looking for their new home or investment property.
I look forward to continued growth in the real estate industry and willingly offer my help in the growth of HorryCounty itself in today's new and exciting changes. I am a member of the Christ Community Church located in Conway and will strive to work more in the needs of the church and my community throughout the upcoming months as time permits.
It is also my intent to offer my customers and clients the individualized service they desire.
Thank you and I am here to help and continually hoping that you Have A Better Than Great Day!
