We have purposely kept our firm small to maintain close, personal relationships with our clients. We have handpicked the best talent who each specialize in specific markets or functions to ensure all interactions with us provide the best experience possible.

Recognizing there are times where a small team may not scale to meet all the needs of our clientele, we have partnered with top lenders, contractors, and other service providers who share our core values and commitment to unmatched customer service. No matter the situation, we have the expertise and resources to meet your needs!

I have a passion for real estate and all that the Triangle area has to offer. I am a rare Raleigh native with a focus on customer service.

I am not the largest agent in the area by choice as I pride myself on providing a personal touch. I get to know my clients and their unique needs, so I can better serve them. The market has seen a lot of change over the last 10 years and my creativity and agility have helped me to adapt and provide the best advice to my clients. My approach has yielded fantastic results despite a challenging market as I am consistently a top producing agent. Ultimately these challenges have made me a better REALTOR® and resource for my clients.

I graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Studies and Political Science and am a huge supporter of my Wolfpack. If you're moving to this area from out of ACC country, you will quickly learn we are all about collegiate sports on Tobacco Road.

I would love the opportunity to work with you! Whether buying or selling your next home, relocating to North Carolina or moving to a different area of the Triangle, facing a decision on short sale or considering renting, please contact me for assistance with making your next move!

To give real service, you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.

In a crowded marketplace, fitting in is a failure. In a busy marketplace, not standing out is the same as being invisible.
