From condos to castles, I can assist with your real estate needs! 

I think the real estate commission must have tucked a license in my crib: I cannot have been in the real estate business over 40 years..... but I have been! So, I hope you will agree: I must be doing something right! I don't work with dozens of buyers and sellers today. I work for and with people I enjoy and feel I can really help - whether in buying their next home or selling the one they no longer want to own.  

Greater Athens includes Athens, Watkinsville, Winterville, Bishop, and Bogart. I know and enjoy working in all these communities. In 2014, Athens got accolades in Food, Drink, Lifestyle and Music. My favorite of these is being third on Conde Nast Traveler’s list of “10 Most Underrated American Cities,” noting the city’s “new sense of sophistication ... without altering its appealingly slow pace.” But I also like that we are ranked 10th on MyLife.com’s July 2014 list of “Top 10 Best Mid-Sized Cities for College Graduates.” “The University of Georgia holds much sway in this city,” according to MyLife.com, “but those not in school make themselves count as well.” 

Athens has also been named as THE place to which to retire! Just a few of the "best" lists in 2013 and 2014 are these:

  • Best Places to Retire by Money Magazine
  • Best Places to Capture Your Youth by Fortune Magazine
  • #1 Small Metro Area for Relocating Families by Primary Relocation
  • Seven Cool Cities by Kiplinger Personal Finance
  • Retire Here, Not There by The Wall Street Journal
  • 25 Places to Retire by Forbes Magazine

Why Me?

  • Because I chose to make Athens my “new home town,” moving here in 2008. If you are moving to Athens, I can relate to what it’s like to learn a new place!
  • Because I am an SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist) - one of only 6 in the Athens Georgia area - and am over 60 myself - I feel comfortable helping the 55+ age group. 
  • Because I also enjoy 20somethings and everyone in between. For Sellers, 
I believe in "old fashioned" marketing - like postcards and open houses - but I also use social media.  My latest designation from the National Association of REALTORs is ePro: recognizing my interest in and experience with social media. 
  • Because I can assist if you are interested in buying or selling real estate outside the USA. I am a Global Property Specialist with Keller Williams, which means you have access, through me, to approximately 800,000 professionals worldwide. I am also a CIPS (Certified International Property Specialist), a NAR designation. I’ve lived in 5 countries, so I know the ex-pat lifestyle very well.

I truly try to exceed my clients' expectations for their Realtor.  

After you have had the chance to review this information, contact me so I can tell you more about how I feel I can help.
