2017 WVAR Vice President

I find it hard to talk about myself but here goes, I am very proud to be a part of the real estate profession in West Virginia and Virginia. I have been assisting buyers and sellers find that property they cannot live without or moving on to embrace the future since 1997. I am a licensed Broker in both West Virginia and Virginia and have the GRI designation.  I am working as the Broker for a new franchise in southern West Virginia and southwestern Virginia since April 2015—Real Living Solutions Real Estate.

Before my real estate career I was in the wholesale grocery distribution business for 21 years.

 

I have a business degree from Bluefield State College that I received going at night, started in 1989 and graduated in 2000.

 

I have been a state director of the West Virginia Association of REALTORS© since 1998 (with a leave in 2008). I have served on all of the committees and have been honored to chair the Education Committee twice; the last time in 2014. I strongly believe that education is a large part of a successful real estate agent. I am so excited to begin this new position with WVAR and hope to fulfill the obligations as Vice President to the members of the West Virginia Association of REALTORS© . I am a member of the Mercer-Tazewell County Board of REALTORS© and have served as President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary (2016) and chairperson of several committees.

 

I raised my younger sister (16 yrs. apart) after our parents passed and the “man” in my life now is my four year old nephew, Uriah, he calls me “Nana”!! We find it hard sometimes to have family gatherings because of everyone’s obligations and schedules but we always make the best of the time we do share. I thank my family for their support.
