I became interested in real estate while working as an assistant to the owner of a commercial real estate company in Long Island, New York. I learned firsthand how to handle the complex issues involved in dealing with real estate transactions.
I have been a resident of Manalapan, New Jersey for over 18 years and have extensive knowledge of the Freehold Regional High School District area. I have a strong perspective of the differences in each community which has provided me with great expertise of the real estate market for various townships in Monmouth & Ocean Counties.
I have always had a strong passion for the housing market and the home renovation process, having completed several of my own. I have been approached for guidance numerous times and decided to put my knowledge into a career where I could help others achieve their goal.
I am now affiliated with C21 Cataneo & Associates which is one of the foremost real estate companies in New Jersey. If you are buying or selling a home, I have C21's global network behind me and I have the negotiating and marketing expertise needed to provide you with an extraordinary service.
I currently serve the Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex areas. I do go out of area for personal referrals so please always keep in mind that if I do not serve your area personally, I will find you a great agent who can! I have many great connections with talented professionals in every area of the real estate industry, so from financing to closing, you will have the assistance of a dedicated professional. I know how stressful the process can be and will be there to guide you step by step to ensure that your sale or purchase goes smoothly.

Selling your treasure
Let me help you every step of the way!
I am excited to be associated with Century 21 Cataneo and Associates. I have chosen to work with this office because of the high standard of ethics they demand, and great success this office boasts, as well as the strong backing provided to agents and their clients by the Century 21 brand. As a matter of fact, I have chosen this office to sell my own home. While listed with Cataneo and Associates with my former high school friend working as my agent, she encouraged me to pursue a real estate career. Real Estate has always been a passion of mine and because of the inspiration from her incredible success and expertise, I went forward with becoming licensed to sell real estate.
My family and I currently make our home in the Morganville section of Marlboro, NJ, after relocating from northern Virginia. We settled in this area because of the excellent school system, proximity to New York City and area beaches and the warm sense of community the area provides. The many special programs and learning centers available in the Freehold Regional High School District have provided a wealth of academic opportunities to our children, with Anthony being a student in the medical sciences program at Freehold High School and Alexandra starting Marlboro High School in the fall. My involvement in the school system as a volunteer and fundraiser has allowed me to contribute directly to programs and resources available to our children and teachers, while enjoying watching our children grow up in this great state. My husband Frank and I feel very fortunate to reside in Monmouth County and have made life long friends over the past ten years we have lived here through our avid involvement in the schools and sports teams within our community.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, I attended Bishop Kearney High School and graduated from CUNY Brooklyn College magna cum laude with a degree in Philosophy and Speech Communications. I have an extensive background as an office administrator and legal secretary in both New York City and Washington, D.C., and most recently was a successful account manager at a third party logistics company for web sales here in New Jersey. I have always been goal oriented and successful in all of my endeavors, and will continue on this path while with Century 21 Cataneo and Associates.
My strong work ethic and diverse skill set will allow me to give you the individual attention you deserve while making some of the biggest moves of your life. I pledge to ensure you are always kept fully apprised of what is going on during your entire transaction, whether you are my buyer or seller. I enjoy negotiating the best deal possible and will always strive to attain this goal for you, treating you as though I were negotiating for my own family. I am very detail oriented by nature and will handle all of the intricate nuances of your deal from start to finish with professionalism and enthusiasm so that you can spend your time worrying about more important things like window treatments and paint colors!
I look forward to providing individualized service to each and every client to meet your specific needs and goals and will always be available to answer your questions and provide guidance throughout your entire transaction. Please feel free to call me at any time for all of your real estate needs!

I fell in love with the natural beauty of Central New Jersey more than 20 years ago. I feel fortunate to have raised my three children in great schools in an area with so much to offer. As a former teacher, I know about the schools in the area and I can help you learn about them, too. While raising my children, I
I developed an intimate understanding and love of home construction while completely renovating various investment and personal properties. My knowledge of homes, soon found me answering many other homeowner's questions. My knowledge of central New Jersey helped friends and family to relocate to this extraordinary area. It was a natural progression to choose real estate as my second career.
I understand the importance of building long lasting client relationships based on trust, information and the delivery of results. I am a dedicated professional who demonstrates the highest quality work, attention to detail, and follow up. My previous experience has helped me develop a unique eye for evaluating a property's highest potential. I know how to problem solve when it comes to difficult properties or simply re-evaluate how to market a property. I consider myself fortunate to help others with a job that I love!
I chose Century 21 because I felt it would help me offer the greatest value to my clients due to the company's international reach, marketing capabilities, and the quality of Century 21's many resources. The company's affiliation with Easter Seals, which provide services to people with disabilities, is an organization I believe in. Not only do I believe in doing good for others,
I also practice doing good by volunteering thousands of hours over the past 20+ years for various charities throughout central New Jersey.
