I love being from Northern Virginia. From the joys of sitting in countless hours of some of the worst traffic in the country to paying tolls that are also some of the highest, I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. Some people may consider us crazy for wanting to live in a place like this, but it's what we call home. Part of that is a big reason why I got into real estate, getting the chance to help others be a part of our community.
If you asked any of my clients what kind of agent I am, hopefully, they'd first tell you how great I was to work with, but I believe they'd also point out how calm and adaptable I am. No matter how easy buying or selling a home is, it can also be an emotional decision, and I feel my job is to guide my clients through the transaction, help set the expectations for what can happen, and then be there to help problem solve any situation that may come up.
When I first got into real estate, I exclusively worked with my friends and family, what better way to start out than by asking the people I already had a connection with? The most important lesson that taught me was whether it is a friend I have known for over a decade or a brand new client that is relocating from out of town, I treat everyone honestly and upfront because I know that is how I want to be helped. I know the reputation agents can have being considered 'yes' people, but ultimately as a real estate broker, it's my obligation to everyone to provide them my expertise, even if Zillow's Zestimate swears their home is worth $50,000 more!
Hopefully, after reading this, you can tell that I am easy to talk with so if you ever have questions or need a good starting point with the Northern Virginia real estate market, please feel free to contact me.
