As a Realtor with more than 10 years in the Middle Georgia area, I enjoy working with Clients to help them exceed all of their Real Estate needs.
I have recieved the Quality Service Award the past 2 years and The Ruby Award for my production. I recieved Rookie of the Year my first year in Real Estate and am a Lifetime Member of the Million Dollar Club. With a Degree in Architechural Technology I truly love working in the residential field as well as investment property.
I believe in being completely honest and fair in every situation and this is an extension of the CENTURY 21 philosophy; which is delivering a gold standard of excellence to all of my clients. I truly care about my clients and treat them as if they were close friends or family members. Because of this philosophy, I have happy, loyal customers and a wonderful referral business from those who've done business with me in the past.
I graduated from Crisp County High School in Cordele, GA. My college degrees were earned at Abraham Baldwin College and at the University of Georgia.
I entered the real estate profession as a second career, becoming licensed in 2001. Earlier, I had worked in the banking profession for over 20 years, with positions in loan origination, branch management, and internal auditing.
Working as a real estate agent has given me the great opportunity to enjoy a long-held passion of mine; that is, homes and the personal connections that come with the searches, sales, and purchases of them. I strive constantly to excel in both public relations and human resources as they relate to my work.
Professionally, I'm excited about my new responsibilities as President-elect of the Crisp Area Board of Realtors and grateful for both my status as the 2010 Top Producer for Smith, Branch, & Pope, L.L.C.'s Cordele/Lake Blackshear Office and new membership in the Million Dollar Club. Aware of the vibrancy of technology in the real estate profession, I have recently gained the National Association of Realtor's Technology certification, designated as E-Pro. I've found that membership in the Georgia Association of Realtors also provides opportunities for continuing education and professional networking. Reacting to the economically driven volatilities in the housing market, I have actively gained as much recent experience as possible in handling distressed and foreclosure assets.
When not working with or for my clients, I have some community and civic involvements that are very rewarding to me. I'd like to mention my involvement in the following: Past President and current Board of Directors member of the Historic O'Neal Neighborhood Association; Board Member of the Gillespie-Seldin Rural Life Community Center; Chairman of the Gillespie-Seldin Rural Life Community Center Audit Committee; Board member of the Georgia Initiative for Community Housing; Founding Officer of Barnes & Thomas, Inc., an enterprise devoted to the preservation and restoration of historic homes in Cordele's O'Neal School Neighborhood; Volunteer for the SAM Shortline Railroad; frequent volunteer and constant promoter for community service organizations and events in Cordele; and Special Events Volunteer for the Georgia Historic Preservation Trust.
My hobbies are even real estate connected! I enjoy travelling around our country to historic homes, preservation sites, and historic home districts.
I live in the Lake Blackshear community but strive for a special focus on the in- town properties of Crisp, Dooly, Turner, Wilcox, and Sumter counties.
I would enjoy an opportunity to focus my passion for real estate on YOUR home purchase or sale needs.
