I've spent more than 36 years in the Washington, D.C. area building a distinguished career as a journalist, public affairs consultant, lobbyist, and Emmy Award-winning producer of public service programming. Through my volunteer work with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the American Red Cross, local food banks and Project Hope, I've helped to meet the needs of people in her own community and abroad.
My unique real estate interest merges modern and historic design styles, influenced by my own home-buying experiences in the United States and Europe, and has led to several of my homes being featured in major style and architectural magazines. These personal experiences of buying and renovating properties enhance my ability to represent distinctive homes and our exceptional clients.
Please call or email me if you would like to look at homes together, or to schedule an obligation-free, personalized home selling consultation.
