I started out in Real Estate in Wisconsin as a Residential Income Property Investor over 20 years ago, originally managing all aspects of my own units. The technical knowledge of the physical properties and the deep understanding of real estate contracts gained through my personal real estate acquisitions and dispositions naturally led me to obtain my Real Estate Sales license. At first, friends and family would call on me to help navigate them through the often complex purchase process. Fortuitously and unintentional, I had developed a blossoming real estate sales business. Unfortunately the real estate market crashed but my desire to help others did not diminish. I shifted with the market and learned all I could about short sales and pre-foreclosure options for distressed sellers. I transitioned into a short sale solutions Manager in my former brokerage and earned the reputation as a short sale specialist among my colleagues in the industry. I have been an executive Manager of my former Real Estate Firm, overseeing a staff of Real estate professionals that focus on Home Buyers & Sellers. I oversaw a property management department that manages a portfolio of scattered site single and multifamily properties. I love to work with new investors and try and assist them in all the steps in starting an investment portfolio of their own as well as seasoned investors. Any area of Real estate is my passion from first time home buyers to sellers. I fell in love with the South when I would come and visit family and decided to make the Triangle area my home. I give my all to my clients and many have become life long friends.
