About Your Host

Whether you are looking to make this area your full time home or a mountain getaway, I can help guide you through this process. Being native to the area, the mountain region is very near and dear to my heart. I enjoy showing buyers the beauty and secrets of the north Georgia mountains and seeing the excitement that grows when they think of calling this area home. I have been licensed since 2002.

Not only do my services include assisting buyers but also sellers. I strive to stay in contact with sellers and utilize as many online tools as possible to showcase their home making every effort to get the home SOLD!

Although I enjoy my career, I make time for family and friends as much as possible. My husband and I have 2 children that are 1 and 2 years old. They join a 14 year old stepbrother who is in love with his little sister and brother! We enjoy watching the Atlanta Braves, Georgia Football, and the Atlanta Falcons. We enjoy exploring the many hiking trails and waterfall trails of the area. We attend The Torch Worship Center in Demorest.

I have had the opportunity to serve as the 2015 and 2016 President for our local board of REALTORS. This has been a great learning experience as I have been able to network with people not only in our local board but also throughout the state.

My future goals include completing the CRS designation and completing the Leadership Academy for the Georgia Association of REALTORS.

Please feel free to contact me not only for real estate but for any questions you may have about our lovely area of Georgia.
